The Lies Of the Borg Are the Glue That Binds
The Borg are an alien group that appear as recurring antagonists in the Star Trek franchise. The Borg are cybernetic organisms linked in a hive mind called “the Collective”. The Borg co-opt the technology and knowledge of other alien species to the Collective through the process of “assimilation”: forcibly transforming individual beings into “drones” by injecting nanoprobes into their bodies and surgically augmenting them with cybernetic components. The Borg’s ultimate goal is “achieving perfection”…
You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
– The Borg
Ironically, this article begins with an epilogue. It is because what began four years ago with a dream to Make America Great Again® has now become the nightmare of a collectivist coup and The New Domestic War on Terror®.
For years now, I have speculated on the presidency of Donald Trump as the “bleeding of the brake lines before the big stop”. Unfortunately, it now appears that speculation has been answered in the affirmative, because it happened: America has been assimilated into The Collective.
In my last article on The Borg, I took a very hard-line approach on Trump as a Judas Goat hired by The Borg to trick patriotic Americans into a trap. After all, the only obstacles that remained in the way of The Borg’s “Great Reset” were the U.S. Constitution and those who would defend the nation as founded. And, yet, a U.S. President who promised to make America great again and swore an oath on a Bible to uphold said Constitution has surrendered the country to a stolen election and foreign governance.
Regardless of anyone’s particular position on President Trump, it is good to have these discussions – especially prior to whatever Citizen Trump may do next. Before the former president begins a crusade on voting integrity, or forms the Trump Patriot Party® or a new Trump Media® Empire, it is wise to debate at least the possibility of him as a traitor to his base.
Certainly, online articles and comments can inform, but this writer views blog posts as a forum to primarily share perspectives and opinions. Although some of my articles are posted to provoke thought, or even persuade, I, mainly write to test ideas and, hopefully, generate comments and views that will enlarge my own perspectives on any given issue and, potentially, even change my mind.
Admittedly, the process often requires assuming a role and relentlessly hammering specific ideological positions.
So perhaps I am, or am not, the wild-eyed Trump hater as presented in my previous article. Either way, I wanted to force the conversation to the point of receiving push back from online commenters whom I respect. Perhaps unsurprisingly, in testing loyalties to Trump, I have mostly received feedback from those who are not yet willing to pronounce harsh judgment on the former president; perhaps out of residual love for his accomplishments and boldness, or because of how he has agitated the snowflakes in such gratifying ways, or a myriad of other reasons.
Yet, I’ve seen no unequivocal evidence that Trump is genuinely who he has presented himself to be; other than The Borg’s apparent oppression of the man, which could have been part of The Borg’s plan of distraction from the beginning. Moreover, as of this time, the outcome of Trump’s presidency has not been overly positive for his supporters; to say the least. Therefore, any remaining loyalty to Trump among his base seems to be visceral – in the same way, perhaps, we might make excuses and allowances for a beloved friend or family member.
When Trump didn’t fully release the Operation Hurricane documentation prior to the 2018 midterms, people said: “He is filling the courts with conservative judges first!” He was always playing 4-D chess or “he’s setting a trap” such as the “watermarked ballots”, etc. Then it was the executive order on foreign interference in elections, a brilliant plan for the “Stop the Steal” on January 6, 2021, and then the national guard in D.C. to arrest the Deep State cabal on January 20, 2021. Even now, some claim the country will be taken back by mid-March or sometime in April. And, yes, it appears Q-anon has played a role in some of the speculations.
But the feedback that gave me the most pause on my last article was as follows from a commenter called Thunderbird:
And speaking of the swamp did Trump not say he was going to expose the swamp creatures; or rather drain the swamp so everyone could see the creatures in it? Well he certainly exposed them. So what now?
Admittedly, Trump did do that. But does it mean Trump is real and still has the means to achieve effective political solutions? Or does it mean President Trump was installed by The Borg to facilitate specific outcomes, demoralize Deplorables, and to demonstrate the futility of resistance?
Perhaps Trump does have some more tricks up his sleeve. Anything is possible. Even so, after all we have witnessed so far, I fail to see how any next moves made by Trump will be anything more than Opposition Lite – just like his presidency over the last four years; and anyone refusing to acknowledge that contention may remain continually caught up in distractions and have difficulty facing the reality of America’s future.
