Glossary:

Harmony -- After passing through savagery, patriarchate, barbarism, civilization, and guaranteeism, human society will eventually arrive at happiness and pass through a series of seven harmonic stages, reaching full Harmony. People living in harmonic stages would no longer be citizens but harmonians.

Confessor -- Wise and elderly psychologists, women for the most part, interviewing everyone to ascertain libidinal needs of the moment. They would be assisted by psychologically acute Harmonians officially designated as matrons, fairies, and fakirs.

I like Fourier, and maybe the other Utopic socialist like saint-simon.

But I got the feelings that even in Harmony I would be a weirdo/outcast

It's just fun to see how wild early socialism got at times. World-building the definitive way of harmony thousands of years into the future, while rejecting everything that once was. Overwhelmed with possibilities and yet eager to categorize them all. Later socialists were rather tame in comparison.
