Le Guin demonstrates utopia must be constantly re-won and fought for, that there will be no end-state where humanity settles into bliss. The generations after the separatist revolution slump into selfish and controlling habits, the solution for which isn’t more capitalism, according to Le Guin — it’s more anarchism. The revolution must refresh itself, must create itself anew in each individual: “Revolution is our obligation: our hope of evolution. ‘The Revolution is in the individual spirit, or it is nowhere. It is for all, or it is nothing. If it is seen as having any end, it will never truly begin.’”
