Apropos of galatic peace…
Finally got to see the rebooted Star Trek this weekend – and absolutely loved it. Just enough nods to the well-loved history (Bones: “Are you out of your Vulcan mind?”; the red-shirted member of the away team who dies; Kirk’s famous pose in the captain’s chair, etc) to bring smiles to faces, but otherwise the Abrams broom has been busy a-sweepin’.
There are those who mock Gene Rodenberry’s vision of the future (and I’m not denying there are things to titter at), but what’s so wrong with peace, love and understanding? (as the song says.)
I’ve yet to discover the secret to global peace, but did stumble across a WikiHow article on How to make the world a better place. Take that away today – along with the Trek lesson that we can learn much that is useful from those who are different to us (thank you, oh pointy-eared bastard…)
