One of the most beloved pieces of fiction beloved by those who wish to escape reality and re-imagine a world that isn’t as it exists but how they wish it existed is Star Trek.
Star Trek, the ultimate wet dream of people that think diversity is our strength. A universe where people from different galaxies have made not just a globalist government but a bureaucracy that controls planets in different galaxies. A universe where healthcare is free, the perfect food that comes out of a machine is free and never makes you fat, there is no such thing as money and if that’s not enough of a utopia you can go into a “hollodeck” to escape reality even further. In other words, it’s what globalists envision the world would be like if we would just give into their plans, and if a few million or even billion have to die to achieve that goal, that’s OK because it’s all for the greater good, because “synthahol” never gives you a hangover and you haven’t lived until you’ve had sex with a green alien.
The irony of course is that the one thing that makes this universe even remotely plausible is something so key to it’s existence it is referred to as the prime directive. Wikipedia has this to say about the prime directive:
The Prime Directive has been used in five of the six Star Trek-based series. This conceptual law applies particularly to civilizations which are below a certain threshold of technological, scientific and cultural development; preventing star ship crews from using their superior technology to impose their own values or ideals on them.
So basically what that means is if the enterprise or anyone from the super centralized government known as the federation of planets is to encounter another planet which has not evolved on their own enough to handle the responsibilities of participating in their form of government or to be trusted with their advanced technologies, they are not to interfere. Not even if it means saving lives. sometimes billions of lives.
every once in awhile the characters will be tempted to break the prime directive or to take in alien life forms they know nothing about and it almost always ends in disaster. This is a reoccurring theme that shows up again and again and again, after all, it’s the prime directive. It’s the only thing that allows this utopia to exist. With all the starry eyed diversity and hopeful futurism even the writers seem to know instinctively that taken in civilizations that had not evolved enough on their own to be a part of this utopia would destroy not just the utopia provided by the federation but also the the primitive civilizations that weren’t ready for access to the technology they hadn’t earned.
The writers knew this because it’s true. We see it happening all around us. the advanced civilizations in the west naively thinking they can just inject their culture into more primitive societies and that they will just magically accept it. leapfrogging all the necessary evolutionary steps required for an advanced culture to thrive. like trying to install the latest version of Mac OsX onto an Apple IIe and just expecting it to work. and of course it doesn’t work. but this doesn’t dissuade the globalists, they just keep trying to force their ideals around the world in a mad desperation to live in the futuristic world that exists only in their imaginations. and when it doesn’t work, they topple governments, wipe out millions of civilians and drive hordes of refugees from these primitive societies into their own lands thinking that maybe if they can’t establish the utopias they want abroad they can just import these aliens into the societies they have established at home and through sheer force of will these people will be magically transformed upon setting foot on foreign soil and be absorbed into a foreign culture. Something that also goes against the prime directive and something the writers must have also instinctively known would not work as we look around at what is happening to the advanced western cultures that have made this grave mistake.
So perhaps star trek isn’t so far fetched after all. perhaps it isn’t the vision of paradise that the globalists cling to while they sacrifice your way of life and the safety of your family while they try their hand at playing god, hell bent on imposing their wishful thinking on the world at the expense of reality and human nature. maybe it it’s a vision of the paradise lost when we ignore what even the writers of leftist propaganda instinctively knew. the key to making an impossible future plausible enough to suspend our disbelief while their fantasy of the future was shoveled into our heads episode after episode, movie after movie, convention after convention. A world that will never exist because we’ve ignored the only thing that made it even remotely possible, the prime directive.
