The death of Leonard Nimoy at the age of 83 will no doubt cause many to talk about his life and about the being that was Spock. I thought I should get my 2c and state proudly that because of what he said Spock must have been a socialist.
He was certainly rational. He was not greedy and enjoyed the simpler things in life. He also looked far into the future and wanted to make sure that humanity/vulcans lived in a sustainable way. I bet that if he lived in Aotearoa he would have tossed up whether to vote for Labour or for the Greens.
As proof here are some of the things that he said:
They are all good rational and collective propositions to make. The first statement mirrors Karl Marx’s famous dictum.
As for Spock’s environmental credentials it is utterly rational to care for our environment. After all it is the only one that we have and our lives and future depend on it. In real life Nimoy
Live long and prosper!
