star trek: DS9
S06 E18 and E19, Inquisition and in the pale moon light.
Probably two epsiodes that I remember. This makes DS9 what it is.
What I really don't get is Sisko's moralist handwringing about a dead romulan senator and a scumbag who couldn't make it 24 hours on the station without stabbing the bartender.
Get my rocks off
Because with all the depressing shit, you just need a party song.
Note to the reader: "Women's lib" was a form of mass psychosis which broke out during the last three decades of the Old Era. Women affected by it denied their femininity and insisted that they were "people," not "women." This aberration was promoted and encouraged by the System as a means of dividing our race against itself.)
Note: Not even people...
They constantly bitch about the "arrests" that marvelously still work within a strong rule of law context.
As much as they decry this as "soviet", people suspected of belonging to their organization not charged with a crime are let go.
Not thrown in a labor camp or shot.
The Jews in their story don't as much as resist. They are all also clearly violating the law and on the offensive from day one.
They couldn't even conjure up fighting against an actual brutal dictatorship, be it Black Nationalist, or even Eastern Bloc or Authoritarian Communist.
In fact most of their revolution works essentially because there is no real resistance because they are fighting against a beurocratic liberal system that doesn't respond to their force in kind.
So despite the paranoia of being watched on the phone and all their data being monitored, the worst that they can even come up with is being arrested, and let go in 3 days or a week, because "they can't pin something on them". All of the computerized monitoring systems seem to work without fail, but they are installed by corrupt lazy officials that seemingly can't get anything else right and easily accept bribes. But for some reason the computer operators don't take them.
Turner Diaries update
I think the worst part is the author can't decide if FBI are incompetent nincompoops now that J Edgar hoover is gone, or some super efficiency Soviet-esque torture machine.
Some he also misses the irony of using "racists" "racist conspiracy" as if there was any doubt, when he describes an aggressive, violent racist conspiracy.
Not even in the most wild white supremacist victim fantasies are they ever described as less violent or aggressive their their supposed aggressors.
Reading Turner Diaries
Because its a fascist favorite, thought it'd go through it looking for shibs, dogwhistles, and actually figure out what is compelling about it.
As expected, its just a string of cliches and red dawn fantasies. Pretty on the nose, and not so subtle. Add in the victim complex.
It makes no attempt to be poetic, but I guess when you are doing propaganda, what is now known as "Wikipedia simple english" is great for accessibility, and this is more propaganda than thriller.
Another interesting note is that it follows the life of a private in their would be army "the order", but it was written by its general, the leader of the movement.
A man who would be oh-so happy at the sacrifices of others for his militant dictatorship.
