Re: is babylonian 5 any good

Well, I find his stuff very interesting, if not to be taken entirely seriously. But he wasn't a Right Wing loon-- more of a strange kind of Libertarian. He believed in individual liberty and opposed organized religion. He certainly believed in sexual freedom. He believed in a meritocracy. Stranger In A Strange Land, remember, was embraced by the 60s counterculture. I think of him as kind of like Ellison-- I only agree with him maybe half the time, but I like reading him almost all the time.
