The founders of a new colony, whatever Utopia of human virtue and happiness they might originally project, have invariably recognized it among their earliest practical necessities to allot a portion of the virgin soil as a cemetery, and another portion as the site of a prison.

In Chapter 1 of "The Scarlet Letter" Hawthorne wasted no time to illustrate the ambivalent expectations from "whatever Utopia" the righteous founders of a new colony
might have contemplated. Just as the practical necessity of the cemetery was a reality, so was the prison a reality of the Utopian idealism. Sadly.

Hope for the best and prepare for the worst. Is this a virtue or drawback?
