by H. G. Wells

A Modern Utopia is a novel written by H. G. Wells and originally published in 1905.

Wells presents a planet just like Earth but located in another corner of the galaxy and there he develops his utopia. Even the population is genetically identical to that of Earth and on it will address issues such as his conception of an ideal society.

It is a rather peculiar work and Wells himself makes it clear: it is not a science fiction novel, but neither is it an essay. It is a work halfway between the two genres in which Wells explores the idea of a single world state.

A Modern Utopia is strongly influenced by the era of changes that Wells lived through, in which the mechanization of labor increased, the theory of natural selection was accepted and the economic model of populations began to combine capitalism with state socialism, which for Wells was the modern vision of an ideal society.

Modern war, modern international hostility is, I believe, possible only through the stupid illiteracy of the mass of men and the conceit and intellectual indolence of rulers and those who feed the public mind.
