Social engineering uses the theories of a number of social sciences to modify social dynamics and institutions on a large scale for the betterment of humanity. In his classic work, Karl Popper (1902-1994 AD) drew distinctions between democratic social dynamics, which seeks to solve the most urgent problems of society immediately, and utopian social dynamics, which focuses on the ultimate perfect society; in other words, democratic dynamics deals with the short-term and the utopian strives for a long-term ideal. On this planet, some colonies sought to put some of the many theories for “adjustments” to social dynamics into practice through pedagogy, propaganda, law or even direct coercion. The success of these approaches has not yet been determined, but the likes of the Human Hive indicates that the efficacy cannot be totally dismissed by libertarian thinkers.
