Following a discussion with friends, I looked further into the economy of Star Trek. Some friends claims Star Trek is a capitalist state, others that it was pure communism - each sharing proof that backs up their various claims.

Looking at it from that perspective is fascinating. Just like exploring history and trying to understand what the societal norms, thoughts, ideas, and morals, were, before judging it.

An interesting article on the subject:
