Re: The Roddenberry Reputation

We have always built idols so that some time in the future we could tear them down. Roddenberry is just one more example of this. When we elevate someone to the status of a god, and later relegate them to a position below us, we feel better about ourselves, we feel superior.

To paraphrase Maslow, people have to eventually tear down their idols: looking up for so long makes the back of their necks sore.
