I like how Michael Dorn’s makeup actually physically prevents him from smiling. And Levar never breaks character and is like “WTF are Deanna and Riker doing? Is this some terrifying new dancing plague from Risa?”
I know most of you know nothing about TNG, so sorry I reblog it all the time…just think of it as “Hank’s Doctor Who.”
It’s true what he says though - there is no subject position from which it’s ok to talk about inequality - if you’re poor you are doing it out of jealously, if you’re not poor you’re doing it out of guilt/saviour complex, if you are young it’s just a phase, if you’re old you are hankering for times long gone and trying to recapture your youth, if you’re not well educated you just don’t understand the complexity of the situation, if you are well educated you’re in an academic bubble divorced from reality, if your politically apathetic you’re not allowed to complain, if you’re politically active you’re just trying to push your own sectarian agenda…
For every possible type of person there’s an established reason why your opinions on inequality are invalid. That’s not an accident.
