The continual psychoanalysis of Ron Moore by the OP is more than a little creepy.
The OP's desperate attempts to rationalize the mystery of how the first two seasons could be so great and the last two so bad on one level reflects profound respect for Moore. The mystery is impossible to solve, leading to really peculiar hypotheses. But I think the true answer is obvious, namely, seasons one and two were badly written too, but they were on 9/11 when the supposed 9/11 wars were still popular.
But even if the notion that Moore was competent is true, the OP wasn't remotely as creepy as a multitude of OPs about Rick Berman and Brannon Braga. In fact, the OP isn't nearly as creepy as the idea of "Weaponized Culture." That guy's review of Skyfall is perceptive about the movie's backwardness and how comfortable he is with it. His graphic that fits drug and other police operations into the spectrum of war is pretty symptomatic too. However I thought that Moore's comfort level with the notion of Cylons as "holy warriors" and a "Jihadist people" was much creepier than the OP.
The people who attribute(d) malicious motives to Berman and Braga are just as bad, in my opinion. We're talking about TV shows and movies here. Nobody screws them up to deliberately fuck with the fans. Fans just need to get over themselves.
