Well, people aren't going to want to be a garbage person, sewer worker, or any other awful jobs. Take note that (almost) everyone wants to do something artistic or that requires higher education. I suppose maybe you could get robots to do those jobs, or take the Brave new World approach of predestining children, but otherwise this is really unfounded and illogical optimism.

All that aside though I'd like to be someone who maintains the social order of the "utopia" by ensuring that people don't get out of line.

We respect them because, while they had abhorrent ideals they still ultimately had great contributions to the field of philosophy, and most of their appreciated work has nothing to do with race. Should we gain what there is to gain from the past's work, or should we hate them and judge them with a modern eye for having what was then, mainstream positions. A great example (different field, but it still applies) is the Nazis. Obviously, what they did was abhorrent and inexcusable by any measure, but should we not seek to better our society with the medical advances they made? It's not like if a racist person says or invents something it's automatically incorrect or invalid.

New to the movement and I'm curious how removing a centralized power that can be used to monitor climate change issues being removed would stop climate change. It seems to me that the removal of a state would remove the possibility to monitor and enforce these issues. Why not advocate for a green state instead of no state at all?
