I don't know why they dropped that storyline, but I did find this on Wikipedia re: the dude getting blasted:


----------------------------------------------
A mold of Paul Newman's face was filled with raw meat and then blown up to create the effect used when Picard and Riker fire on Remmick, but both Rick Berman and Peter Lauritson were concerned that it was too graphic. Dan Curry invited his six-year old son to watch the episode in order to test how children would react to it, who reportedly liked it so much that he suggested the creation of a Remmick action figure where the head would blow up by pressing a button. This resulted in Berman deciding to air the episode uncut with the full sequence included.[3]

Get Over It: The U.S. Is Not a Police State
01/17/14, 17:12

Also, Cena, you allude to "decent gun control laws". We do have solid gun control laws already, at both federal and state levels, including waiting periods, background checks, restrictions on various weapon designs, and blanket ownership bans for convicted criminals.

What more do you propose?
Get Over It: The U.S. Is Not a Police State
01/17/14, 15:58

Well, the main reason we can't have any "decent gun control laws" is because, as Steve says, we're still a nation that believes in the rule of law and respects the Constitution. But having a significant population of hysterical Truthers helps, too!


As far as Steve's main thesis goes, I think we can all agree with him! The United States is not "a police state", at least not in the sense that he and many of the more extreme Jonesites might use the term - a bleak autocratic dystopia full of Hollywood style Nazis "askink to see your paperz" before hustling you off to some shadowy re-education facility.

However, it does bear pointing out that the United States is undeniably a *prison* state. This assessment is not based on any anecdotal statements (such as "neither I nor any members of my white family have ever personally been harassed by the cops"), but rather on cold, statistical evidence. We have the highest rate of incarceration in the world, almost seven times that of China (a country which Steve advances as an example of a genuine "police state" about six and a half minutes in) and four times that of pre-war Nazi Germany (which sets the standard for our modern fantasy of "the police state"). Guantanamo Bay, the PATRIOT Act, the NSA, these are all real things that Steve acknowledges... and then dismisses, because they don't add up to his fanciful vision of a "police state" which, I'd argue, has never truly existed anywhere but in our collective imaginations.

I'm not saying he's wrong, but he's not exactly right, either. In debunking this ludicrously soft target, he slips into the same sort of "what, me worry?" thinking that has historically defined the general public's attitude towards runaway systems of authority in which they find themselves embedded. Like most things, a better answer might be found in the middle - away from both the shrill hyperbole of the Alex Jones set, and the raging-for-the-machine exasperation of Mr Shives.

It's below Xena, only really notable for airing next to Jack of all Trades.

Cleo lacked both the originality of Hercules and the high-brow academic relevance of Xena. It only aired for like a season, though, so I'm willing to concede that, given time, it may have been able to come into it's own alongside it's three more accomplished siblings.

He's attending Trinity College, Dublin (Ireland's most prestigious university), and apparently wants to pursue a career as an academic once he's done with GoT.

He's a bit of a mess as a speaker, but no-one's going to call him on it, not after what he did he to Ned Stark.

* This should probably go without saying, but I am NOT suggesting anyone should be smoking meth. Obviously, it's a very bad life choice. But it's a life choice that should be handled on an individual level, and people who make a "bad" choice in that respect should not be turned into criminals. And yes, I'm wiling to concede that the state MIGHT play a role in "combating drugs"... but if the government is to do anything, it should be setting up purely voluntary treatment services for addicts who want help. We could have free meth clinics in every city, for a fraction the cost of what we spend busting meth heads and harassing the enterprising Walter Whites of this world!

Ashtar - as long as the meth-head isn't killing his neighbors thinking they're demons, I say it's fair ball. And even then, the problem isn't the meth, it's the murder - and murder is already a crime. Criminalizing substances on the grounds that they MIGHT lead to a "real" crime somewhere down the road is pure precrime reasoning. *At the very most*, individuals under the effects of meth should be restricted to private residences or specially licensed meth-houses, similar to the way we treat alcohol and, increasingly, tobacco use. If they come outside or try and drive a car, bust them for public intoxication or DUI.

Anaxagoras - If every step weakened paternalism, then how did we go from the spectacular failure of Prohibition, to the even more spectacular failure of the War on Drugs? If the twentieth century taught us anything, it's that history is not a process of small steps towards an enlightened utopia, but rather, it's a great big epileptic seizure that leaves us spasming haphazardly about on the floor. Unless the flawed logic of paternalism is addressed *directly*, it will never go away; we'll simply trade our current irrational drug laws for something else, equally irrational and illiberal.

I take similar issue to the way the media (and to a lesser degree, academia) has been treating the gay marriage "debate". More and more, the focus seems to be on persuading "normal folks" that gay people are "just like them". But this is beside the point! It doesn't matter whether the general public approves of gay marriages or not - it's not up to anybody else to decide how a couple chooses to live their lives. That's why gay marriage should be "legal". Period. By shifting the focus away from the real argument and towards rote conditioning and "normalization" of a favored body-identity-politic, all they're doing is undermining any genuine progress towards sexual liberation. The end result will be that we're still saddled with a system that relies on "community moral consensus" to determine who should and should not be granted the basic right to pursue happinesss; we'd really be no better off than we were before.



It's sophistry, plain and simple. All this focus on making it look like one side of argument is shouting louder than the other, it's nothing more than a cheap attempt to score a win. And the cost of using tactics like this, instead of sticking to cold, solid reason, will be pretty everything good that might have come from the whole mess.

Anderson Cooper is such an uptight old fart.

Also, who cares if "the public" thinks pot is less dangerous than booze? How dangerous a substance is for it's user should be irrelevant to the question of legality, and unless the classic paternalist argument is addressed and laid to rest for good, we'll have learned nothing, and gained nothing, from the repeal of marijuana prohibition. Furthermore, public perception is to a large degree dictated by the media itself - particularly in the 1970s, when there really wasn't much in the way of alternative sources of information, and you either listened to what your TV told you, or you listened to nothing at all. Echo chamber bullshit.
