You should view the world as a conspiracy run by a very closely-knit group of nearly omnipotent people, and you should think of those people as yourself and your friends.

What is Plutopia?

The word “Plutopia” is a portmanteau combining two terms: “pluralist utopia,” a concept that envisions an ideal society where diverse beliefs and identities coexist in harmony, actively promoting mutual respect and minimizing conflict. While idealistic, the term represents a vision of a more inclusive and harmonious world, acknowledging the complexities of achieving such a perfect society.
