meddlesome

So there they are, 3 years after the blessings of the so-called democracy push, and now even CNN tells us the truth. Notice how little the warmongers have to say now. Meanwhile The Netherlands don’t know what they’re going to do in Afghanistan, other than taking part in yet another huge powergame of derailed testosteron mixed with a world energy shortage panic.
Made me think about the opening scene for the movie Serenity, where a teacher starts with this:

“Earth-that-was could no longer sustain our numbers, we were so many. We found a new solar system: dozens of planets and hundreds of moons. Each one terra-formed, a process taking decades, to support human life. To be new Earths. The Central Planets formed the Alliance. Ruled by an interplanetary parliament, the Alliance was a beacon of civilization. The savage outer planets were not so enlightened and refused Alliance control. The war was devastating. But the Alliance’s victory over the Independents ensured a safer universe. And now, everyone can enjoy the comfort, and enlightenment of true civilization.”
Her students then ask:
“Why were the Independents even fighting us? Why wouldn’t they look to be more civilized?
So, with so many social and medical advancements we can bring to the Independents, why would they fight so hard against us?”

Young student River jumps in:
“We meddle. People don’t like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think. Don’t run, don’t walk. We’re in their homes and in their heads and we haven’t the right. We’re meddlesome.”

Sound familiar?
