In a utopia there is no place for those who know the secrets of its creation.
When the Jacobins took control of France, in the eighteenth century, their first target for executions were their own supporters, the ones who knew the secrets of the Jacobin project for creating a heaven on earth and could at some point of time reveal the truth to the political rivals of Jacobinism. Something similar happened in the twentieth century, when the Bolsheviks became the masters of Russia. The Bolsheviks have prosecuted and executed more communists than the leaders of any capitalist country.
A new utopia project is now underway in the Western countries: this is the digital utopia. The supporters of the digital utopia do not realize that they will be the first to face the guillotine or banishment to a concentration camp when the utopians attain total power.
