Re: You know what really irks me about "Insurrection"?
Politically you can look at it either way. You might call them libertarians who are private property types not themselves native, and that this is eminent domain ("takings") of the state, in which Starfleet is to the Left--or that it is environmental exploitation, and, the Sona are to the right.
You can argue either side on this...
And I doubt Piller had either such superficial political nonsense in mind.
