H. Irenicism, Dialogue, and Evolutionist Utopianism
The dissolution of the State in its present form and of the United Nations, replacing them with a universal anarcho‑cooperativist regime on whose summit one finds a global super‑cooperative, the consequent impossibility of wars (and consequent uselessness of armed forces), extreme ecumenism, religious relativism, and irenicism are all corollaries of one common principle: the evolution of human nature promoted by a period of good will in which all argument dies and men only dialogue among themselves.
Having placed the irenistic tendency ‑which seeks to impose itself through talismanic dialogue ‑ in its ideological context, we briefly mention the doctrine on which this tendency is based. This is utopianism, traces of which are found in so many cultures throughout the course of history, and which erupted in the West with marked vigor after the Middle Ages. From Morus and Campanella to the utopian socialists of the last century, the course is easily shown, as it has been so often before.23
