"Does Utopia Rule Our Lives?" by KINGPIN
It has just hit me how much Utopia controls us. We are addicted to a game, and it makes us do things that we would have thought stupid before starting it. People have been driven to waking up at insane hours during the night simply to check on a computerised simulation of a world. We are mindless zombies that pretend that we are the rulers of an imaginary world.

Ask yourself this, when you succeed in a thief operation, or take 100 acres of land, knowing that you're safe and no-one can touch you, building defense equal to an american battle fleet, does it give you a rush? Does the andrenaline pump through your body knowing that your democratic skill and strategy has led you succesfully to a greater goal?

Are we people sad, letting a simple game control our whole lives? People posting messages like "HELP!! I CANT LOG IN" after trying once to try and access the game - having been denied the desire to play, we panic. But what if Utopia should end? Will sites like Utopia Temple cease to exist? Or will we simply change to another game... like Dominion Temple, or Ambar Temple? And why do we treat Mehul as a god? Yes, he created the first game like this, and yes it is good and yes we all love it. But when people post things in the Bugs & Suggestions forum like "I GOT TO POST UNDER MEHUL!!" and "THANKS MEHUL, YOUR THE GREATEST!" and "Mehul, you ROCK!", it is merely sucking up. He may see your post, but he will discard it without a second glance or thought. Is this the life we want to lead?

I don't think we shall truly know until it happens, which i doubt - too many people are hooked, and unless Mehul wants to increase suicide rates accross the world, he wouldn't do it.

Take a minute to think about it...

I think it's addictive because it has a couple of desirable aspects.
You can escpae from thw world. You can tell things to utopian frends that u wudnt tell to ur real frends and vice-versa. Your age, skin colour or nationality has no impact either.
I'm 16, and a monarch, "dark" skinned, and i have control over people twice as old as me. How often does that happen in the real world? Young leaders can effectively EARN their way to leadership.

Also, competition keeps the world going round. There is always new competitors. There are many ways to express your skills. Our motivation for doing anything is to succeed against others. Everything you do, you are competing with others. The competition here is just as fierce here, if not, more
