Educating For The Perfect World
"The hope of making (The Utopian State) would lie in culture. If people could be persuaded to read and write, not just eat and make love, there was still a chance that they might come to reason." This statement made by Arthur applies to both the society within T. H. White's novel, The Once and Future King, and to our own modern-day society. Within the society depicted in the novel, as well as in our own society, individuals who are educated and informed have open minds to reason with each other in conflicting situations, rather than make war. Through this idealistic view, proposed by T. H. White, there is the possibility of achieving a utopian state.
