And refuses to consider that it ever could. At least there are instances in Trek where the Federation makes mistakes.
I'm not gonna tell you that you're not entitled to your opinion, but this argument is just batty.

Comparing what a franchise with 725 episodes and 11 films is able to cover to a series with 14 episodes and one film is just weird. Firefly had to devote some time to set up the universe and perspective before turning it on its head. That said, there were plenty of hints that the Alliance provided some good, and some clear cases of our big damn heroes crossing lines.
Travel's fatal to prejudice, bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can't be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's life.
