Re: What happened to the NEw essentialists?

They were definitely correct that the Federation had grown complacent, but they were incorrect to link that with abundance. The moral values of the Federation are exploration, peace and scientific progress, and those happen to lead to a state of comfort and abundance.

So the conclusion to be drawn from that should not be "Comfort is bad, destroy it", the conclusion should be "Make sure you never get the false impression that you are invincible."
