The collective

A modern day parable.

After Captain Picard was assimilated into the Borg collective he sent a message to the Enterprise – “I am Locutus… of Borg. Resistance… is futile. Your life as it has been… is over. From this time forward… you will service… us.” Well it didn’t come to happen and the Captain eventually returned to comand of the Enterprise. In later episodes the Borg were defeated.

You can see where this is going. A seemingly unstopable adversary with a mission to assimilate all cultures into a single minded entity, (read liberals) turning every species they encountered into Borg “drones” (liberals again) was eventually defeated by the aptly named “Enterprise” and the resourcefullness of free thinking individuals, and the Captain returned to command his ship.

┬áBorg=liberals – ┬áliberals=Borg!
