Fourierism is utopian socialist model developed by the 19th century French Philosopher Charles Fourier.

This blog gets its name from a line from the 1990 move “Metropolitan,” spoken by one member of the self-identified “urban haute bourgeoisie” to another (who identifies as a Fourierist) after meeting at a debutante party. The movie is about young, white, upper class New Yorkers who meet every night during their winter break from college to go to balls, play bridge, and discuss class and social mobility.
