When Captain Kirk recites the preamble to the Constitution of the United States, and then says that the words were written "not only for the Yangs but the Comms as well...They must apply to everyone, or they mean nothing..."--how do you understand this/take this? (Cultural imperialism [forcing those values onto the Comms]? Or reminding the Yangs that the Comms have rights of their own/stop the antagonism?) (Of course, I assume the context of the time would have something to do with the meaning [but I am missing that, as I wasn't alive yet then].)
