“A lot has happened…we have eliminated hunger, want, the need for possessions.” “It’s never been about possessions. It’s about power….to control your life, your destiny.” “That kind of control is an illusion.” “This is the 24th century. Material needs no longer exist.””Then what’s the challenge?” “The challenge…is to improve yourself…and your life.”
