In Part I of this essay, I argued that we need a new way of thinking about utopia that is appropriate to today’s modernizing progressive coalition. That approach should start by embracing new findings on human nature and economics that provide the basis for an expansive vision of humanity’s future (see related posts here and here). And it will reject the left’s currently gloomy view of progress, which confuses current problems with long-term trends. It is true that rising inequality in the US and some other countries has limited the benefits of economic growth. It is true that globalization has produced its share of losers in the US and that globally many nations are still mired in poverty. It is true that world economic progress is promoting serious climate problems. But economic growth and globalization as long term trends are still far more beneficial than harmful, a fact which resonates with this emerging coalition, even if it no longer does with the traditional working class.
