Hey guys, it’s Saturday again so I’m here to bring you another Philosophical Story Challenge. To start us off in the Chinese New Year I’d like us to dissect the idea of bettering ourselves. It seems a common theme throughout history that humanity recognizes its flaws and tries to improve itself as a whole, yet I find it hard to think of where (apart from different religions) we get this idea of a better human race. Are we just projecting our ideals back onto ourselves? What makes them more ideal than the real world we live in? These are some important questions that you should consider as you write your stories this week. The topic itself is this: What does the ideal society look like, in your opinion? As always, please keep your stories under 1,000 words, and good luck!
