A short post in between my weekly post:
Jean Luc Piccard, captain of the Enterprise, is talking with a woman alive on Earth in the year 2064 after WW3. Piccard says to her in response to a question: “The economics of the future are different. In the 24th century the acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force of humanity. We seek to better ourselves and others. Poverty was eliminated.”
If I am to be reincarnated, and can choose, then I would like to be alive in that era.
