Re: A country without Money how it's work?

But the reason it doesn't spoil it (today) is because people who work are rewarded by being able to access more (and better) food, clothing, shelter, opportunities, vacations, material possessions, standards of living

so while i work and see others not working (and it may bug me a little) the fact is, i gain significantly more by working than they do from not working

now fast forward to the federation utopia and we have a big difference because the people that don't want to work now have access to exactly the same standard of living as me so suddenly i'm looking at all these people having sex all day, drinking replicated champagne, travelling the globe having adventures, doing what ever they want with life and so i'm left wondering....why the fuck am i slogging my guts out all day when not slogging my guts out all day would result in exactly the same standard of living

i just don't see how you can get past that basic problem
Kryton - Is this the human quality you call....friendship

Lister - Don't give me any of that Star Trek crap, its too early in the morning
