The utopian ideal is a nice one...don't get me wrong. But, as we've always seen, and known, the best of intentions pave the road to hell....literally or figuratively.
Again, Firefly and Serenity pop into mind. The Alliance wasn't evil per se but as a large spaceborne society it tries to create a Utopic society of peace by trying to manipulate a population via an experiment that goes dreadfully wrong. Because you can't have a Utopia if you have people in it. Ultimately.
