Re: Roddenberry's Worst Ideas

But there are opportunities in the Federation. Tens of thousands of its citizens choose to die in miserable dilithiium mines just to better themselves, just as millions of Soviet citizens thought clearing trees in Siberia would be personally fabulous and advance the state to a more perfect future where humanity moves beyond the need for money. They didn't ask for any pay, just the chance to freeze to death in a camp like any enlightened member of their advanced society.
