For taking the crazy lead away from the Trekkies/Trekkers.
geeks change the world in many ways and that leadership – behind the scenes as it is
is sometimes influenced by social attitudes
after all the reason that we assumes that ancient civilizations used slave labour
was because at the time of early archaeology, slavery was a social norm around the world
so while slavery has existed through human history – for many cultures – massive public works engineering projects were what the population did during the off-harvest season
so it’s important for geeks – as social outsiders – to lead the way towards that Star Trek future we so crave
where everyone is an equal individual and the group demographic characteristics are just part of the spectrum of diversity of the human experience
Religion seeks to control you by making you think that you deserve to feel bad for something you’ve not even done – just thought about
to make sure you feel bad about something you’ve done religion picks on sex and sexuality
if you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t
then the only outcome of doomed to fail is to succeed
at some level of magnitude, since nothing ever works out how it is expected to, including failure
the path between; pick the path, each will have it’s own sphere of influence
in terms of a position, it’s regulating an interface
Because the INDIVIDUAL is the social unit of consequence in a secular democracy with the FREEDOM to take LIBERTIES with what – or who – makes them HAPPY –
The DISTANCE BETWEEN church and state is the measurement of individual freedoms – of which – EQUALITY is the supreme right above all other rights, for everything else is a choice of the individual
We do not choose what demographics groups we belong to as individuals – so discrimination against people who are less than 1% genetically different from yourself is not merely willful ignorance but unadulterated hatred of your fellow humans.
and hating someone for their choices of expression or how to live their lives is just regular ignorance – because it is down to the individual to be the expert of their live and existence
imposing your will and beliefs onto others or attempting to make your religious beliefs into law in a secular democratic nation is ILLEGAL and Unpatriotic – if you want to live in a theocracy – there are many nations that use that form of government – you only have to move and change your religion.
