Romanticism in postmodernism

by kjbake01

I keep noticing this streak of romance in my postmodern friends; they really do want to build a utopian future. They react against current institutions and are positive the new ones they create will avoid them. I’m trying to seperate the romanticism of their youth from the romanticism of their worldview, and struggling. Is there an organization or institution that matches their ideals? Communes? Co-ops? Facebook?

I’m not sure. I’d like to sift their ideals through a pragmatic sieve… How much of what they say they want will work in the real world? Is any of it currently working somewhere?
