^Yes, I believe that Gene Roddenberry decided, when writing the TNG bible, that 24th century humans would have advanced beyond personal conflict and strife. Ignoring the creative limits that this would place on storytelling.
A nonsensical notion that a child wouldn't grieve for a parent was brought up too. That really just belittles life and values as a whole in my opinion. That would be a souless enviornment to raise a kid in if they don't even care if their mom dies.
Yeah, and it sounds a little too much like Aldous Huxley's Brave New World to me. I don't want that kind of world, and I'm glad Sisko/Jake didn't live in it.
