Start Trek: The Next Generation is the perfect illustration of the Communist vision submitted by goatsandbros to funny

Tacomelt 1 points 26 points (+27|-1) ago

It isn't communist, it is more or less technocratic/meritocracy with emphasis on free choice and democracy. Property wasn't abolished, citizens still had their own homes and the government didn't force people to work jobs they did not want to work. DS9 for example the MC's father had a restaurant on Earth. Some of the later movies TNG MC had a vineyard. Captain Kirk had a ranch as well.

Over various series it can be shown that the economy is more resource based than anything else. Internally people take what they want and give back in a more responsible manner, though there are humans that are outside the federation that live an monetary society. The problem most people see it as an utopia because most of the episodes are aboard a military vessel, not civilian life. Even the military aspect is 100% voluntary. Though there was some question about conscripts defending colonies in disputed territories, but it wasn't exactly clear.

In the Star Trek Universe the non producers of society most likely all died off in WW3, Africa for example that relied on foreign aid was most likely wiped out, major US/EU/Asian cities could not support themselves and massive deaths occurred, I read something like a city like New York would die/collapse in 2-3 weeks without any food delivered. The amount of lore was left up to interpretation but one can agree with the major superpowers collapsed, import countries would perish.

There is a lot more lore and information to go over-not going to get into this shit right now. I would say it is definitely socialist, but merit/tech with resources based society as a whole for the federation.

that's not even a board Q endorses, think of any board that promotes Q but isn't endorsed as controlled opposition or general faggotry
