Well, that's what instinct is. It's like the Fight-or-Flight Syndrome-- something built in that you have to deal with (some people more than others). Everything? Mass murder? Going native in hopes of gaining immortality? Locking up McCoy and Spock? Fighting Kirk to the death? Trying to get more weapons to commit more mass murder? What did he do in the episode that wasn't insane? They were trying to adapt to making peace with lifelong enemies. Aside from some cute semantics about inalienable rights, which essentially means nothing-- especially in a multi-species Federation-- I don't recall anything that could be considered genuinely racist. I would say oversensitive to it, because there was nothing to indicate anything of racism in Decker at all. Okay, I'm convinced. The world has not changed a bit since 1919. Yup, this is a bad time. Two steps forward and one step back. Expecting linear progression is as naive as expecting four billion years of evolution and ten thousand years of social inertia to be overcome in a week. Why in the world would you think it's an easy answer? It's just the only answer and it has very much been successful-- that's how we've made all the progress that you refuse to see. And yet it remains a fact. Good point. And my Father died of cancer, which means that we've developed absolutely no treatments against the disease and never will. I think you must be the only person in the world who watches Star Trek to wallow in its hopeless vision of the future. I'm sorry that you have such a dismal view of life and can't see how far we've come in such a short time, the Millennial Generation notwithstanding. I can only hope you take a second look at some point and see what's really going on. I guess it's easier to commit armed robbery than face those former co-workers. Guess she didn't do too well with that. Aww. I think I remember that, actually. Yeah, that distinctive sound is why I don't think of them as 50s the way I do with other artists and songs. I shall reveal nothing that will result in alterations of the timeline.
