A panacea is a remedy for all illnesses and diseases. A cure-all. Now of course there is no real panacea, nothing to cure all the diseases and issues in our life. Except there is. It’s death, I won’t beat around the bush. Whatever problems you have right now, I promise you won’t have them dead. Being dead doesn’t sound much better though, kinda sounds like a downgrade to most, and if it doesn’t to you may I take this time to unironically suggest you seek professional attention.
That’s the catch though isn’t it? The best things sound impossible until you realize they’re not, but to achieve them would be to take the most drastic negative measures, basically cancelling out any benefit that it would have. Utopia? That’s not impossible, just take away everyone’s free will and bam, there it is. You might be thinking to yourself, “well that’s not perfect. That would be a dystopia.” You’d be correct. They’re the same thing. Utopia in the greek translates to “no place”. It was a pun from the get go. It can’t exist. Dystopias and Utopias aren’t even two sides of the same coin, they’re just the same side. Any attempt to gain the best things will usually result in something so terrible that it defeats the purpose. Plus, somebody would probably ruin it anyway.
