The Sling of Utopia

 
Felix Wilfred (Author)
Synopsis Utopia is not an unreal figment of imagination, or a chimera we chase in futility. It is the projection of another real order of things, a different set of values, and a new shape of the world and society. The suppressed identities, women, minorities, Dalits and tribals and all those who are marginalized in any way, project their utopias. Utopia leaps out from the shoulder of many struggles to glimpse and experience the new and the different. Critique is indissociable from utopias.  An insatiable greed and callous individualism that neglect the poor and the weak, a concentration of power that refuses to accept democracy and participation, a homogenized order that denies pluralism, difference and minorities, a patriarchal culture that fails in gender justice, a nationalism that disowns the poor, a religious system that legitimizes inequalities, a consumerism that is pursued t the cost of the poor and nature-all these are brought under critical scrutiny in this book. The book wants to be a contribution to keep alive the utopias of the victims and their struggles.
