Star Trek's 40th anniversary

From The Times Online:

"it is also an occasion for lamentation, a time to reflect on the baleful effect the programme has had on the American mindset — namely Star Trek’s message of liberal imperialism, a philosophy that uncannily has since been realised in real life.
Rather than having succumbed to the urge to boldly go and meddle with strange new worlds he didn’t understand, Captain Kirk should have stayed at home and sorted out his own people’s problems."
That was the point, though. Kirk's people didn't have any problems anymore. Thus it was possible for them to pull the mote out of others' eyes.
It's rather like the Left today which is certain that they can achieve their happiness through their error free methods of eliminating other people's freedom.
Liberals, having become certain that they have created utopia in their own minds, seek to make sure that it is crammed into my (or my child's) mind satisfactorily.
Imagine the Star Trek episode when they discover the Nazi planet and Kirk says, "We'll just let them stew in their own juices as they like. Let's go have some fun on Orion. Who's up for that?"
Of course, The Times is really tendentious about the whole thing.
