More Star Drek

Don't know how I missed this, but in The Next Generation, we are told that earthlings "no longer enslave animals to use them as food". So all the apparent meat they eat comes from their magical replicator technology, the same machine that produces Earl Gray Tea, Hot out of thin air.

I love ethical highmindedness, especially when it's based on the impossible.

Maybe I'm a Liberal after all.

Oh for the love of... Really? Really!? So we can make meat out of thin air, but they didn't have the technology to give Geordi gene therapy or something for his blindness before he was born?! And if Geordi got his ocular implants, and we can just make matter out of thin air, why doesn't everybody have them?

Apparently, future technology is only hampered by the political/social wish list of the creator. >:(
