A Borg-like leftist collective


A thought came to me the other day: Has anyone ever watched Star Trek, The Next Generation?

In that series there was an enemy called the Borg. They were half machine and half human. They would go around the galaxy taking humans and assimilating them into their group, or collective. There was not one Borg with independent thought. They all thought and spoke as one.

It kind of reminds me of the liberal mindset. To go against the liberal collective is a no-no. Individual thought is not permitted. They must be as one entity. How dare you have an opinion not of the collective?

The leftists take the individualism right out of this great American society of ours.

After 9-11, for a brief moment there, this great nation came together as an American republic. No multiculturalism, no thought police.

It’s a shame it couldn’t stay that way.
