Re: was ezri right in Tacking into the Wind - are Klingons hypocrites?

^Well, to be frank, that would be an absurd question to ask, if my point was to discuss current corruption in the British system.

Ezri was trying to hit home her point that the Empire had abandoned its Founding Principles (hmm...) by asking Worf to look at what the Empire had been like throughout his lifetime.

If it were as you said--that her question wasn't limited to his personal perspective during his lifetime--Ezri would therefore basically have implied that Klingon leaders have never, ever been honorable or un-corrupt. Again, going back to your analogy, it would be like my claiming that the British system has never not been corrupt.
