^"He's just buying into the myth..."?
...is it really necessary to be so, to be blunt, patronizing?
Remember, in my full post, I just pointed out that Star Trek
is a work of fiction
. In fiction, we think outside the box, and allow for possibilities which are arguably absurd and unrealistic
, due to the premises
we are given.
IF there were such a conspiracy (or, more appropriately, secret organization), and IF it was able to be stay in power for 200 years (which, BTW, one might call equally
unrealistic and mythical)--
And IF such an organization is de-centralized
, as "Extreme Measures" indicates...
Then is it not rational to allow
for the possibility that it was not completely taken down? With respect, Chris
, I think you're taking a lot of things for granted.
