Star Trek speaks to some basic human needs, that there is a tomorrow - it’s not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb. This is the human adventure. It’s just begun.

The great American dream…enjoyed by many non-American countries…is denied to the majority of Americans…
Map above: “You can see what my colleague Derek Thompson calls the geography of the American Dream in the map below. It shows where kids have the best and worst chances of moving up from the bottom to the top quintile—and that the South looks more like a banana republic. (Note: darker colors mean there is less mobility, and lighter colors mean that there’s more).” http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2014/01/why-is-the-american-dream-dead-in-the-south/283313/
“According to the Pew Research Center , in 1971, 61% of all American households fell under the “middle class” designation. Today, that number is 51%. And, right now, 35 percent of U.S. households live on $35,000 or less each year.
So, as the middle-class in America continues to shrink, it should come as no surprise that a new study out by The New York Times reveals that American children have very little chance of climbing out of the social and economic class that they’re born into.
Or, in other words, social mobility in America is non-existent.
According to the NYT study, a third of Americans studied who grew up in the top 1 percent made $100,000 by the age of 30.
Only 1 out of every 25 Americans who grew up in the bottom half of America’s income distribution was making the same amount at the same age.
Meanwhile, as social and economic mobility have decreased, income inequality has skyrocketed.” http://www.alternet.org/civil-liberties/original-american-dream-was-not-about-getting-rich
