What is the meaning of “kompletopia”?

“Kompletopia” is a term coined by Volker Bourne, which combines elements of “utopia” and “complexity.”

In his statement*, Bourne uses this term to convey the idea that while some may present an idealistic vision of a perfect society (utopia), the reality is much more intricate and complicated due to human nature and its inherent flaws.

Bourne suggests that the pursuit of utopia is often distorted by human frailties and ambitions, leading to a complex and challenging societal landscape where ideals can be manipulated for personal gain or power.

The concept of “kompletopia” reflects a nuanced understanding of the complexities and pitfalls involved in striving for an idealised society.

  • “They are trying to persuade us they are providing a utopia – but they are human – and have human frailties.  If not they, it will be others who adopt and distort their meaning for their own ends.  History has shown this trait is repeated in many guises. What they are painting is a picture of a kompletopia.” – Attropiation – Volker Bourne.
