That episode just always boggled me in the mere concept that a state could be so authoritarian to regulate what you can and can't think. To me that would be the ultimate tyranny to violate the sanctum of your private thoughts as a matter of routine.
I agreed with Seven when she was talking about how dumb it was for federation explorers to ignorantly beam down to a planet without having some of the crew review the government's laws for any potential red flags and discuss that with a contact on the surface before beaming down. Delegate someone to sort through it. Seems like a sane thing to do to me. There should be...some kind of...directive. But then that would remove an easy way to create TV drama.
