Well George Ripley, I must say this society of yours is quite impressive.
Well Robert Owen, allow me to show you around the beautiful Brook Farm!
So this place was built for study?
For the most part. We came here to prototype the future of society!
My goodness! You share this farm land with the whole of the community?
Of course! I'm sure you've thought of such a thing yourself. Follow me!
Now I must inquire, is everyone well taken care of here? It seems to be an easy setup for exploitation.
Well we are free thinkers here, the value of free thought and advancements is worth ever so much.
I'll admit this place is truly a fantastic prototype. I look forward to building a version of my own, considering what's happening to yours.
Yes I'm sure you'll have- Hey wait a minute, my building!
And so Brook Farm burned, symbolizing the general level of success had by Ripley or Owen. Human nature simply couldn't withstand such a change in living conditions and forced lack of greed, and Social Utopias faded into legend.
