    Especially as depicted in TNG - as a whole civilization where people live as if they're perpetual college students.  :D

    A slaver says: "Work for me or I'll kill you." A corporate executive says "Work for me or I'll take away your means of survival." Is there a difference?

        then I suppose it would be very stressful and unpleasant, but who finds it nightmarish to have worlds of opportunity and learning experience at your fingertips?  Doesn't have to be high tech or intellectual stuff - could be art, film, music, food, athletics, whatever.  Just anything where you cultivate yourself as a person instead of just being a mindless cog in some pointless machine, killing time until you croak.
