Re: Roddenberry's Worst Ideas

Indeed, a more enlightened humanity, which strives to better itself, is not even remotely a bad idea.

The word "utopia" is a stumbling point, best moved past. But I will also throw into the mix that much research indicates that even today, money is not much of a motivator, once past the stage of providing basic needs.
If we have a future where the worst poverty is eliminated worldwide, freedom and enlightenment actually does increase, the birth rate begins to stabilize...umm yeah, these are good ideas.
