There's a difference between wanting to lower the inequity that exists in society, and thinking the only way to get there is to institute a quasi-anarchist, communist state. The best combination you could have, in regards to an economic state within your country, is a mixture of both capitalism and socialism. Socialism =/= communism, by the by. A lot of countries, the United States included, have aspects of both a capitalist society and a socialist society. What is important is maintaining a reasonable balance between the amount of each you employ. If I've said it once, I've said it a dozen times -- You cannot fix what is broken or doesn't work by swinging the pendulum to the other extreme. It doesn't work, and it will never work.

Utopian by definition means both idealized perfection and unrealistic and impractical dreams of said perfection. Perfection cannot exist, because humans are not perfect. Humans are humans, and thus fallible. So while this utopian landscape you seem to think can exist is nice to think about......it is by its own definition, unable to exist.

So why don't we try working on making the less-fortunate in all societies live a better quality of life? Sounds like a more reasonable and practical plan.
