All excellent points but that applies to human society in the Star Trek universe, not the Vulcans.I agree.
However due to replicators this (Star Trek) society is cashless.
IMO everyone would be more liberal if humans didn't have to fight over resources to survive.
Which was a precursor to distant space travel.
I do agree that the only way Socialism can work is with unlimited energy/resources and the freedom to leave the area/planet.
This Joe Rogan interview with Naval Ravikant is excellent. It covers a lot of topics including this one. Ravikant states that the purpose of technology is to free people from needing to work for food, living space, etc so that they can be free to create and contribute to the culture. He points out, among other examples, that Rogan's "job" as a podcaster is the result of technological developments that didn't exist 20 years ago.
