Morris, William: News from Nowhere, IMP, v1, 17 Oct 2007.

William Morris:
News from Nowhere or an epoch of rest
being some chapters from A Utopian Romance

A Utopia where, after a socialist revolution, society is organised as a mixture of medieval and socialist elements.

From Wikipedia:
“News from Nowhere (1890) is a classic work of utopian romantic science fiction written by the artist, designer and socialist pioneer William Morris. In the book, the narrator falls asleep after returning from a meeting of the Socialist League and awakes to find himself in a future society based on common ownership and democratic control of the means of production. The remainder of the book explores a number of aspects of this society, including its organisation and the relationships which it engenders between people. The book offers Morris' answers to a number of frequent objections to socialism, and underlines his belief that socialism will entail not only the abolishment of private property but also of the divisions between art, life, and work.
In the novel, Morris tackles one of the most common criticisms of socialism; the supposed lack of incentive to work in a communist society. Morris' response is that all work should be creative and pleasurable. This differs from the majority of Socialist thinkers, who tend to assume that while work is a necessary evil, a well-planned equal society can reduce the amount of work needed to be done by each worker.”
