One thing about Star Trek has been making more and more sense to me lately. Gene Roddenberry says that in the future, people won't need money anymore. They'll get what they need, they'll be comfortable, and nobody will have to go without so someone else can have too much. Yeah, I know, we have a LONG way to go (and I'm pretty sure we'll never get to the point) where we don't need money, but it's still nice to hope that people like Paul Allen, who has $20 billion, two 747s, and multiple homes around the world just because he was in the right place at the right time, will be wiped out of existence. I'm not jealous of him, I just wonder why the heck does someone think they need 2 jets, especially when they could be spending all that money on helping people who need food or medical attention or something of the like. It's frustrating for some reason this morning to think about that sort of thing. Grr.
