Star Trek

For the most part I like Gene Rodenberry's portrayal of the perfect society. All working together for the betterment of life for all involved rather than the betterment of life of the selected elitists that are "in control".

"The challenge is to improve oneself..."

I think this video sums it up nicely. I am particularly fond of "Star Trek, the Next Generation".

As you said "for the most part", I assume that there is more you could add to the portrait of the perfect society.
I think that the premise for such society is that people know that each of of them is the whole and as a such contributes personally to the development.
I was always been disappointed when people say me and country, like country is some entity that doesn´t have anything to do with each person. To me it is a comfortable way to escape personal acting for the better world.
