, you have repeatedly derailed this thread from its original topic towards today's politics with a tenuous link at best to what was being discussed at the time. I realise that contemporary examples are sometimes necessary to make a point but you went way beyond that more than once. Try to stay on topic. You, horatio83
, have been cautioned against that already and more than once so I'd suggest you cut it out.
If anyone feels the need to have a discussion about left-wing vs. right-wing, libertarianism, economic theory of the 20th century and identity politics, feel free to do so in Miscellaneous or TNZ. I might even participate.
To get a bite more back on topic:
So what? The only Germans that we see on the show are nazis and I don't whine about it and pretend that Trek is somehow anti-German when it clearly isn't.
That's not true. In The Squire of Gothos
there is a German science officer called Jäger who reacts somewhat indignantly at Trelane's assumption that he's a soldier. I always thought that was a nice touch.
