"We all live together in equality free from the troubling of joy and pain."
"It must be very peaceful; but, tell me--I ask the question merely from a scientific standpoint--how do you keep up the supply of men and women?"
"Oh, that's simple enough. How did you, in your day, keep up the supply of horses and cows? In the spring, so many children, according as the State requires, are arranged for, and carefully bred, under medical supervision. When they are born, they are taken away from their mothers (who, else, might grow to love them), and brought up in the public nurseries and schools until they are fourteen. They are then examined by State-appointed inspectors, who decide what calling they shall be brought up to, and to such calling they are thereupon apprenticed. At twenty they take their rank of citizens, and are entitled to a vote. No difference whatever is made between men and women. Both sexes enjoy equal privileges."
A "response" to communists and socialists from the 19th century. It's basically the Fox News version of the socialist utopia, with everything exaggerated.
The narrator spends an evening with some socialists, and when he goes to bed, sleeps for a thousand years or so. When he wakes up, everyone is equal in all things. John Lennon's dream is realized.
