Explain,what are we to make of Le Guins society, committed as it is to a utilitarian notion of happiness?

Focusing on Le Guins The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas, analyze the implications of how your chosen author represents utopian fantasy as an attempt to escape from or to solve real-world dilemmas. In the story, what initially looks like a liberating strategy for solving a social or psychological problem actually turns out to raise even more questions than it answers. What are we to make of Le Guins society, committed as it is to a utilitarian notion of happiness: should we view the ones who walk away as heroes, attempting to disrupt a social system based on suffering, or is there something more realistic about the perspective of those who *stay* and who realize that a place where happiness is achieved without suffering ultimately might not exist?
