The DNC Menagerie

As part of the 50th Anniversary of “Star Trek” Hillary and the Democrats are going to remake the original Pilot episode.

Part of the original Star Trek series, The Menagerie tells the story of a Star Fleet captain whom a cunning alien race tricks into living with a hideous woman by creating an illusionary reality, in which they are both healthy, beautiful, and romantic.

The 2016 remake of this story by DNC Studios premiered at the Democratic Convention last night, with an updated plot, in which the same illusion expands to the entire audience: the viewers see the hideous woman, played by Hillary Clinton, as healthy, beautiful, and romantic, while her partner, played by Bill Clinton, has always seen her for what she really is but continues to play along out of habit and for the sake of convenience.

The Menagerie makes for a very good take on socialism itself. Spend the rest of your life in a zoo cage where all of your biological needs are taken care of – forgo living the life of a fully realized Man. Trade having a life for simply being alive in the animal sense. No self governance needed or allowed. Just life as an animal in the cage.

It is the temptation written about in ancient epics – give up your life Aeneid and you can stay here on my island with me for eternity… or you can go your way and live free like a Man but only be mortal.

And if you don’t bite into Eden’s Apple you’re a racist and a bigot!

Now you don’t want that Scarlet Letter on you do you?
