  • Trekkies and Freedom of Expression


    I know that my political ideologies may not agree with all the fans out there.  But I've been having a good think this year, and I think we've got a problem on our hands, a problem that started years ago and is about to turn a scary corner.
    Our very best scifi has come out of a nation that is practically a democratic Republic. Just something to think about, since 'freedom of speech' and, subsequently, freedom of expression, are coming under fire again.  (Party Line regulation czar)

    Quite a lot of our scifi expression has had much to say about GOVERNMENTS.  Scifi ideas have helped pave the way for widespread societal acceptance of tolerance and unity of races and their freedoms up against government controls.

    When our freedom of expression against big government is smothered, will we still dream?

    We all dream of a 'better world'.  Scifi keeps showing us that a better world is worth fighting for, no matter what the costs, the odds, and how suppressive our governments might be.  It stands to reason that once our media regulation is tightened up, we may no longer be allowed to express how we feel through the arts...

    Please consider, as in my last post, that there are things happening this year that are more important than whether we 'go green'.

I've started transferring my survey posts over to Surveypalooza so people coming in from search engines on mobile devices will be able to see the surveys.


Apologies for the missing vids, another upgrade during the server migration swept through like a scan sweeping through the Enterprise. I'll fix those later, kinda busy...
