The word “utopia” was coined in the early 16th century by Thomas More, writer, philosopher and counselor to King Henry VIII. His book of the same name fantasized about an island nation home to a society free from Europe’s rule, where wealth was to be redundant and the fruits of the land shared equally by all.
