Re: DS9 S2: Paradise

Why did the Village Elders in M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Village” keep the true nature of the village a secret? For the same reason Alixus imposed her will on her colony : power. People like getting it, and once they have it, they don’t like giving it up. Power can provide the greatest sense of personal security one can ever hope to feel, even more so than money; people will go to extraordinary lengths to justify the negative, even sometimes tragic, consequences of wielding it. And as Lyndon Johnson used to say, power is where power goes, which is why the powerful are always surrounded by lackeys and court jesters jockeying for favor.
