The World Inside, by Robert Silverberg. This episodic novel is a "fix-up" revised from 6 stories or novelets from 1970-71 (originally in Nova 1, Science Against Man, and (5) in Galaxy.)
A Happy Day in 2381
In 2381, Man had attained Utopia. War, starvation, crime, and birth control had been eliminated. Life was totally fulfilled and maintained within mamoth skyscrapers hundreds of floors high. It was blessed to have children. Contemplation of controlling families was heretical. There was total sexual freedom. "Night walking" was expected of men and women never refused. Only madness could inspire thoughts of of privacy, faithfulness and trust. There were a few in Urbmon 116 who were tortured by desire for some individual quality to their lives. To them, the perfectly patterned existence of the Urbmons seem flawed.
