Morally and Ethically, Picard turned on a Federation that had turned it's back on its own core principals.
But wouldn't it make a certain amount of sense that another of the Federation's core principals would be to look after it's own people?

Remember, the Baku didn't have to be moved to get at the particles, they were being move to protect them from the harvest process.

And nothing says that the Baku would not have equal access to the medical properties of the particles after being move to another world.

They just wouldn't have sole access anymore.

Do you really believe that the Son'a would've shared the benefits of the process with the Federation or the Baku forthat matter? It was an illegal and immoral operation and they knew it oterhwise there'd be no reason to hide what they were doing.

another sign of losing the argument-the other side is back to the "but the Son'a were going to betray them in the end!" tactic, for which there is ZERO EVIDENCE.

Once again, the Son'a were very cooperative with the Federation UNTIL Picard began screwing up the whole operation.

if we're not limited by what's on film and can just make stuff up,why not argue that the Baku "peaceful Luddite" thing was a ruse and that they were secretly a guild of assassins?
"why oh why didn't I take the blue pill?"
