Re: DSC S2: General Discussion

Josh - there is a clear difference between the liberalism of TNG, which was rooted in 18th century Empiricism (individual responsibility, individual freedom, the importance of logical and rational thinking) and the "liberalism" that typifies STD (no-one is accountable for their actions it's "society" that made you do it, no-one is an individual instead they're part of identity groups, emotion and how you "feel" trumps logic every time).

This gets right at the heart of why STD is so disliked. Barring a few exceptions - who are often played for laughs - the characters in it are completely antithetical to the values of the Starfleet that we used to know. If this was a show about Romulans and the Romulan Empire it would be fantastic - emotional, ruthless people obsessed with inter personal drama and war with no care for the actual wonders of the Universe, taking part in a (well written and cinematic) drama - but it pretends to be about the Federation, so it's terrible.
