I’m not sure the Starfleet of NG would have condoned that view.
No, the Starfleet of NG would've condoned the view that it was okay to let entire civilizations die instead of doing it's best to save even one member of that civilization. See "Pen Pals" and the one with Worf's brother. If it weren't for people (not Picard, until he had no choice, by the way)breaking the rules, those ENTIRE species would be dead.
And yeah, Kirk would've broken the rules to save those lives. So if you're trying to show how "enlightened" the 24th Century was, you failed right out of the gate.
Also, learn how to use the "preview" button when posting, it'll help prevent messes like that.
