Put some evidence on the table please because I cant see anything supporting your assumptions.
Star Trek requires that:
- the number of people who's life-long-dream is to be a waitor is magically equal or greater than the number required for that society to function
- the number of people who's life-long-dream is to be a sewage disposal unit repairman is magically equal or greater than the number required for that society to function
- the number of people who's life-long-dream is to be a desk clerk at a vacation resort is magically equal or greater than the number required for that society to function
- etc, etc.
Its an ideal situation which can't exist. With the millions of such jobs, most would not fill the requirement.
There would be no way to attract people to those positions (today we increase the salary of such in-demand jobs to attract workers). And there is no way to attract people into menial jobs that people don't like (today, there's fewer jobs then workers, jobs are required for money, so people MUST fill these jobs to survive).
and some people in our own still work when they dont need to so why is it so hard to expand that?
Just give me some evidence that htis goes on apart from "it has to".
No Darkling, give ME evidence. I'm saying Star Trek is lacking certain social mechanisms that are required for any society to function. I can't give evidence for something that doesn't exist. If you think they do exist, then you can fill me in:
How does "some" people still working when the don't have to somehow mean that everyone will do so, AND do so in such a way that every job that needs filling will be filled. What is the mechanism in Star Trek that ensures this? So please explain to me how: if Earth needs 1 million vacation desk clerks that there will always be 1 million people waiting to fill that job.
If there is no such mechanism, then Star Trek society simply works by magic. This is not surprising, since you are describing an ideal, utopean world (which can't exist).
