Re: Roddenberry's Worst Ideas
One of Roddenberry's ideas that bugs me is the attitude to death in TNG. In 'The Bonding' we see that children are expected to repress their own feelings concerning the death of someone close to them and mourning someone is considered 'backward'.
Especially since the concept and fear of "death" is considered by many to be what fuels all aspects of humanities endeavors from religion to the sciences to everything in between and beyond.
