It isn't his job to dictate societal change for the Onarans.
Isn't that what he's doing by cutting them off from the drug supply?
But he wasn't cutting them off. They still had two working vessels and with the Brekians now knowing there (sic) bread and butter could evaporate, they will likely push the Onarans towards learning how to repair the technology.
Agreed. Picard merely declined to give them the replacement parts. If he had given them the parts, that could potentially be seen as a PD violation. As it is, his decision not to give them the tech was perfectly justified by the circumstances.
