I'd have to argue that there are no positive aspects, but other people might cite the following three things as positive attributes;

1) everyone is equal

2) the gifted are not applauded; they are handicapped

3) people cannot remember sadness

This type of society lacks individuality, the ability to better oneself, the ability to excel, and the ability to feel emotion.
