from the mouths of trekkies

Never thought I’d quote a Slashdot inverview of a guy who makes movies about Star Trek fans (How funny does that have to be?), but here goes:

“Something to keep in mind, post presidential election, is that in the long run conservatives always lose. If this statement were not true, we would still be living in caves. We wouldn’t have cell phones, vaccines, and rockets. Conservatives will never go to the stars. They are too busy trying to hold society back.

Every new idea that is introduced is liberal at first. The idea that the Earth is round and revolves around the Sun was denounced by conservative leaders at the time. Fact-based evolution is currently being denounced and taken out of some school curriculums, to be replaced, or taught side-by-side, with faith-based creationism. Faith has it’s place for some people in society, but it didn’t get us to the moon and beyond.”

Roger Nynard from here.

  1. conservatives are the ones who keep liberals from getting out of control. sometimes we need to hold ourselves back a little. revolutions, as fun as they may seem at the time, are not that great for a country.

    also, i agree… vagina is a strange word.

  2. And it was conservatives who were saying “revolutions, as fun as they may seem at the time, are not that great for a country” who probably argued against revolting against Britain.

  3. actually, i think it would’ve been kinda cool to stay in the empire. if we hadn’t rebelled, britain would’ve had a pretty good shot at taking the whole world.

  4. Dan, you whine about our current taxes enough as it is…

    You wouldn’t have survived under the British with all the taxes they levied on their colonies.

    You’d have joined for the revolution in a heartbeat.
