What are your thoughts on this? I’ve read Roddenberry was a Maoist and that all in all it does look what society could achieve with socialism and so on, but there are mentions within the series of money still existing and so on, of black markets and so on. I know I could simply ignore the small details and it does perfectly describe in a superficial way how it would be, but in a way it doesn’t look like. Does this change in the following series or there are some glimpses of capitalism here? I assume the last series is pretty shitty in that regard, but maybe TNG is not.
