Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]
Orci also seems to be revealing the movie was more of a George W Bush/Cheney parable than is generally supposed. I thought of Admiral Marcus immediately as a Cheney character...paranoid, militaristic, pre-emptively violent and with power... Secretly starts an unjust war (Klingons may be militaristic, but there was no hint their decimated planet would allow them to attack anyone in the near future).
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
