My thoughts about the actual topic itself: While I think five seasons is a good run, more than ever, I think DSC should've run seven. That it ran less than seven is giving conservatives too much of a field day. My thoughts on this have been completely reenforced by what I've seen. As far as depictions of the future: times change. We can't compare 250 years from now or 1,150 years from now to Today. Today is still pretty backwards, thanks in no small part to the Culture War. So I hope to Hell that how things are in 2023 isn't how they are in 2256 or 3188.
