You’ve all heard the quote by now:
““The percentage of taxes on GDP (in Pakistan) is among the lowest in the world… We (the United States) tax everything that moves and doesn’t move, and that’s not what we see in Pakistan,”
Still, it struck me that Madame Secretary sounds awfully Nineteenth century Christian missionary. You know, the old “We’re gonna save the natives from themselves by bringing them Christianity AND Western culture AND a decent dress sense AND….” thing.
Tsk tsk. Isn’t it supposed to be more like Gene Roddenberry’s “IDIC” from Star Trek: “Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combination”?
An excuse to take pot shots at liberals and geek out on Trek ? I couldn’t resist.
