Re: Critical care: Satire on socialized medicine?

Is satire really that far from the 'social commentary' that Trek is so lauded for?

"Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, and society itself, into improvement."

Sure sounds like Trek to me. Especially TOS.
