YMMV / Ecotopia

  • Anvilicious: The whole damn book.
  • Mary Suetopia: The whole nation is a hippie commune that somehow works.
  • Values Dissonance: To modern environmentalists, some of the concepts promoted by the book can seem strange or extreme.
    • Ecotopians are depicted as not only eating meat, but hunting for it. Today, vegetarianism is de rigeur within the environmental movement, and hunting is, at best, frowned upon (and if it's sport hunting, you can expect a lot more than frowning).
    • There's also "Soul City," a collective term for Ecotopia's ghettoes, where most of the black people voluntarily segregated themselves and which are treated as independent nations. This was based on Black Power ideas that were still prevalent at the time the book was written.
