Re: The Federation Must Die.

Without repeating what others have said too much, some thoughts...

As Gul Dukat said in the Maquis (Part 1):

"Oh now don't go spouting off your holier-than-thou Federation fair play dogma."
Dukat would rather they fight for the strong at the expense of the weak, justice be damned.

They think their own morals are superior to everyone else's. And yet, they would stand by and watch someone commit genocide if it just so happens to be an "internal affair". How can you stand there and watch someone commit genocide and then call your morals superior to those of others?
I have huge problems with the Prime Directive, HUGE, but at the same time if the Federation declared war on every nation wronging its citizens, they'd have to conquer most of the galaxy. Then people would gripe about how the hippies are all fascists. Plus, the Romulans, Cardassians, Klingons, Tzenkethi, Tholians, Dominion, and Borg would all crush them. And if you think they're snooty as peacemongers, how do you think they'd be if they were in a holy war with the universe? How just have people ever been at war?

The Federation is corrupt. It needs to be destroyed, and started over again. This time without that Prime Directive bullcrap, without their holier-than-thou attitude, and with a little less pacifism.
If you destroy a government every time you don't like it, you're going to be starting from scratch every year. It'd be chaos, the New Dark Ages, and far more wrongs would be committed as the new governments are forever "just trying to get their footing."
