I don't need to elaborate the failings of that system, just look around.
You misunderstand me. I never said that it has worked. It would be quite an accomplishment to get it to work.

You would have to do something quite extreme like isolating an entire generation from outside influences and have them educated and mentored by a group of truly altruistic adults. Of course, this is really fantasy since isolation at that level is nearly impossible in our world of technology at this time.

So it would have to wait until a time where technology would allow for the colonization of other worlds. That might provide the necessary isolation for the social experiment to work.

Pretty much fantasy.

Just because something hasn't worked in the past doesn't mean that it can't work. You said that it was "impossible". I wanted you to explain why the concept is impossible.

I'm just in a philosophical mood today.
