This puts me in a bit of an awkward position. On the one hand this is necromancy of an argument that should stay dead. On the other you have disparagingly spoken towards a group I could very easily be included in with being proudly rightwing and, however poorly, a Christian, as well as being far more likely to agree with the "religious right" than say you, which, for obvious reasons, doesn't sit well.Khas wrote:I wouldn't say the Islamic subversions are the most dangerous. It's pretty much a toss-up between the Christian and Islamic right.
Then there is the descriptor "right" attached to "Islamic right". By which criteria is fundamental Islam "rightwing"? Are we talking within American left-right or European? They are certainly religious but so was the left back during early half of the 20th, and certainly are no less...determined or believing in their new more secular beliefs than before, when they justified collectivism under Christ's teachings.
Ultimately to each his own opinion of course, merely voicing my disagreement as I have done instead of engaging in a drawn out argument which won't change anyone's opinions may be the most effective, time-conscious option. Of course I yield to you the right for any continuation. I certainly don't want to stifle your ability to speak your mind or just slip in and shout something and then slip away before you can rebuttal.
Odd. Just off my gut I'd have thought it would the reverse. The OT is more heroic old world fantasy concerning an "old fashion" contest between good and evil while the ,24th century at least, Federation is more of a Progressive's dream State.2046 wrote:Among Britons, in addition to age and gender, there seems to be a left and right component to Trek vs. Wars preference.
I can imagine that some of this appearance is just age but not all, given my own observations. So why would statists prefer Star Wars?
