Metaphysical ticket-balancing.

Also, because "smart people" tend to go all "Morningstar" and get themselves and others into all sorts of troubles. I mean really, would you want to live in a society designed by Socrates and run by people like Plato and Alcibiades? I mean, have you *read* the Republic?

Having widely read SF and fantasy, I've never met a utopia I would want to live in.

Perfection implies stagnation. Which is one of the reasons I find the heaven of Christianity a greater horror beyond the hell they are always droning on about. Not to mention the total inability to aspire to the top job {;>)>
