According to the paper, Thomas More, through the character Raphael in "Utopia", is commenting on the social order of his own country, stating that this society is flawed and that major changes would be needed to bring about any sense of social justice, morality, or even efficiency. The paper brings many examples from the work to illustrate and defend this radical theory.

From the Paper:

"In fact, More says that the government and society he describes is "not only the best social order in the world, but the only one that can properly claim to be literally a commonwealth" (156). The society that More proposes would be a communal one, Christian in conception, but radical in design. he indicates that the people of Utopia would have very few laws but would share everything equally."
