Today's Throwback Thursday takes us to the March 30th, 1891, when British Steamer "Utopia" sank off Gibraltar killing 574.
Because that's what utopias usually do.
The antithesis of utopia, in the common understanding, is dystopia. I'd argue that the latter is rather a mirror image, distorted whenever possible, but it's not the complete opposite. It's probably almost the same ontic entity but with one tiny molecule of some quality more. It's not another quality. It's like chocolate. One may dream a world of chocolate to live in. But after some time within a world like this, having nothing more to eat or drink, not seeing anything else but chocolate flowers, one might shoot themselves between the eyes.
