Coercive Utopianism: Endogenous Models of Cultural Dynamics

David L. Sallach, Charles M. Macal, Jonathan Ozik

Coercive utopianism is one of the more disruptive and destructive processes of the last two centuries. It has not spread in a fixed form, but rather is uniquely generated in each socio-historical context. The focus of the present paper is to identify cultural processes by which coercive utopianism is constituted, and the design and implementation requirements of the computational mechanisms required to model these important cultural processes.
