    The closest one can come to experiencing and PRACTICING "a perfect idealism", which in itself is perhaps the ultimate oxymoron, is if one is fortunate enough to live in an ivory tower,virtually detached from any human interaction. This luxury, exclusively attainable by tenured academics, is fertile ground for "thinking" in lieu of "doing".

    Since most people are obligated to submit themselves to contracted activities that are dictated by others, A.K.A. "work", the vast majority of people are busy trying to create THEIR idea of the perfect "realism".

    Idealism versus Realism. Realism is Perfect Idealism peppered with lots of life's inevitable compromises. As the French say, "C'est la vie". Indeed, THAT is life.
    strange as it may seem,some of the remote nomadic tribes of hunter gatherers have more genuine love,laughter,contentment and close family bonds than us in the 'civilised' world. no shrinks in there world,no need for them.
    Does anyone know this question? because I'd like to the ans to.
