Be sure that you understand the concepts of dystopia and utopia. A dystopian society would be one that is exemplified through poverty, squalor, disease, oppression of individuals, and etc. A utopian society would be founded on ideas of perfection. So while the five freedoms mentioned in the Bill of Rights do not ensure a utopian society, they do move us closer to this idea and move us farther away from being a society of oppression of individuals.
Nothing in this world is utopia, but these freedoms bring us closer to utopia than to dystopia. A dystopia is much more likely to arise when we have no freedoms. Excessive freedom has its problems. But the problems of having no freedoms are much worse. I’d rather live with the problems of excessive freedoms (as in the US) than with repression such as that of the Taliban today or of various communist regimes.
