    I agree on macho (that was Kirk's schtick), but I would personally say he was the most heroic of the 4 Trek captains I'm familiar with (Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway) simply because he always wanted to settle things nonviolently if it was at all possible.   A good hero, IMHO, knows not just how to fight, but when.

    This isn't so much funny as interesting, I admit.  But I thought it was interesting enough to post.

    I don't know what Neil was talking about.  The only human being involved in that conversation did fine for herself.

    The term "Socialism" today seems to have taken on the connotation for many Americans that "Communism" used to have: the antithesis of the American way of life. "Socialist" is used by no few Conservatives as a convenient label by which to categorize anyone who advocates changes to the socio-economic status quo as enemies of the people, thereby denigrating any of their arguments as being unworthy of consideration by real Americans.

    The July 6, 2019 issue of The Economist had a feature article on "The Global Crisi in Conservatism."  By which they mean the conservatism of gradualism tradition and social cohesion, not the deranged nationalism that seems to be pushing it aside. Might interest people as a reminder of what "conservative" once meant.
     
    Still, it also reminds me that while I appreciate cautious and gradual change, recognizing that people are not infinitely flexible; and I appreciate the need for multiple institutional channels instead of focusing exclusively on the State as a medium for getting things done; I cannot ever consider myself "a conservative." Too often even the mildest and most superficially reasonable, Edmund Burke-style conservatism seems to act as an apology or figleaf for established wealth, power, and irrational prejudice. The same arguments used for "Why we must not disrupt the Traditional Family" or "Why we must accept wealth disparities" have so much the same form as "Why we must preserve slavery" or "Why we must burn heretics." It's like a Mad-Lib where you just plug in different words for whatever institution you don't want to change.

    As if we needed more proof, but it's blindingly obvious that 'Fake News' is Trumpspeak for 'didn't kiss my ass', as he's suddenly turned on Fox News for criticizing him.
