Re: Roddenberry's Worst Ideas

It doesn't matter how implausible you think a successful society without money is. It's not physically impossible. From what we can tell, accelerating past lightspeed is exactly that, and they do that in every single episode to general indifference.

People who refuse to do anything are presumably regarded as unwell or maladapted. I guess they get offered counselling. If they don't respond to that, it seems to me like they'd just be left alone and pitied. It's not as though exceptionally smart people are going to be prone to doing that. I'm not sure Einstein was in it for the paycheque.
