I am Con on Star Trek because it glorifies communism, a one world government and multiculturalism. I accept the debate and happily await my opponents arguments.

"On several occasions, the fact that the Federation uses no money is mentioned. Either, in the 24th century, humankind, and in fact most of the galaxy, has regressed to a barter system, or, or. . .
You begin to see what I'm getting at?

You often come across references to 'replicator credits'. 'To Each According To His Needs?' And, since no one ever gets paid, presumably we're also running 'From Each According To His Abilities'. Sounding more and more familiar?

The highly evolved residents of the Federation have given up on Religion as yet another superstition. Who was it said 'Religion is the Opium of the Masses'? [2] The episode 'The Neutral Zone' [3] suggests a slightly worrying situation when Deanna is able to trace all of the descendants of a re-animated 20th century cryogenically preserved woman on the Enterprise computer. It seems as though starships are equipped with data files (including addresses and photos?!?) for every citizen on Earth. Worried? You should be...

The same episode yields and interesting (though, if memory serves, appallingly delivered) quote from Picard:

'A lot has changed in the last 300 years. People are no longer obsessed with the acquisition of 'things'. We have eliminated hunger, want, the need for possessions. We've grown out of our infancy.'

'THE NEED FOR POSSESSIONS'!?!

Where's all this coming from? When Gene Roddenberry designed the Ferengi, they were thoroughly unpleasant individuals. Money grabbing, exploiting, chauvinistic, insular and xenophobic, hung up on the profit motive, their metaphor is fairly clear. They're the ultimate capitalists. And all the time Roddenbery was there, they stayed that way. Well, he died, Rick Berman took over, and Quark happened. But that's another story."

I'm to lazy to write up my own argument but that quote is from another site which clearly states that Star Trek is a communist society.

Also the bible warns against the antichrist being in control of a one world government so Star Trek is supporting the beast of revelation and thus the anti Christ.

Also Star Trek supports multiculturalism, which is bad because Klingons are jerks and I just don't trust them to live in the same society as my children.

>Reported vote: Midnight1131 // Moderator action: Removed<

2 points to Pro (sources). {RFD = Reasons for voting decision: Con used the bible as a source. Debates shouldn't include the bible as a reliable source, because if you compare it against the ideal peer edited source, it's about as reliable as a random paper you find on the ground.}

[*Reason for removal*] The point category is "more reliable sources." It requires that Pro's sources were *better* than Con's, not that the judge just didn't like one of Con's sources. Since Pro provided zero sources in this debate, it is inconceivable how his could be better.
