Why didn’t Jesus build a utopia?

“Jesus had but to give a nod of agreement and He would have constructed Christendom, not on four shaky Gospels and a defeated man nailed on a Cross, but on a basis of sound socio-economic planning and principles … Every utopia could have been brought to pass, every hope have been realized and every dream been made to come true. What a benefactor then, Jesus would have been. Acclaimed equally, in the London School of Economics and the Harvard Business School; a statue in Parliament Square, and an even bigger one on Capitol Hill and in Red Square … Instead, He turned the offer down on the ground that only God should be worshipped.” [Malcolm Muggeridge]
