perfect parallel to life in today's modern world was perfectly portrayed
in an original Star Trek series episode. For young readers, this particular
episode was all about social engineering. It was an ancient alien
culture secretly ruled by a machine, programmed by a long-dead man
A LANDREW LAWGIVER - All laws were enforced by robed law-givers
wielding pipe-like energy weapons for 6,000 years.
Landrew's laws were centered on the philosophy of "For the good
of the body." The "body" referred to the population as a whole.
Captain Kirk told the wimped-out, brainwashed locals on the
planet living in Landrew-land -
"You wanted freedom. It's time you learned that freedom is not
a gift...it has to be earned."
ANDREW JACKSON AND LANDREW - What are the odds of a such a close
similarity, especially on the topic of government? Even hair slightly
covers the tops of the ears.
Was Roddenberry a visionary of life today over 40 years ago?
Shown above is Andrew Jackson (left) with Landrew machine projection
on a wall on the right. Landrew could be Andrew Jackson's brother.
Perhaps that similarity to Jackson was intentional to help people
identify with Landrew.
Compare life in Landrew's society with life under today's new
* INTELLIGENCE COLLECTION - Today powerful computers which use
specialized software to analyze human behavior, web surfing habits,
emails, phone calls, etc.. In Landrew's society, citizens functioned
like listening devices for the machine to watch/track the population
and deal with any threats.
* OBEDIENCE - Today, SWAT teams kick in doors of the homes of
innocent people. Under Landrew, law givers march into any building
unannounced and dole out either a brainwashing-refresh on the spot,
or death depending on the offense.
* TECHNOLOGY - Landrew's society reserved the highest technology
for the law-givers. Citizens were not allowed access to it. Governments
today have numerous high-tech weapons and other technology citizens
will never be allowed access to.
* STAGNANT SOCIETY - Life in Landrew-land went unchanged for
6,000 years. Do we really think our world has really advanced that
much in the past 100 years? Why are flying cars, true fuel-free electric
vehicles, food for everyone, jobs for everyone and technology not
available everyone? We only *think* we have advanced in the past 100
years. Crime, loss of freedoms, oil and other problems still plague
us - by design.
* FEAR - Countries and societies always use fear to control
people. Roots of fear are planted in pre-school. Thirteeen years of
grade school brainwashing and terror drills with military in schools
is always effective to permanently instill fear and obedience in the
majority of people FOR LIFE. In Landrew's world, fear in the citizens
was always present under the surface - just as it is today.
* ONE INDIVIDUAL IN TOTAL CONTROL - In Landrew-land, Landrew's
machine ruled through his machine proxy. Today we have Obama who just
might get a third term if the law is changed. Some past presidents
did get a third term.
Roddenberry was uncannily accurate about our world today. Perhaps
this Star Trek episode was engineered to implant the idea of total
government control into a young, baby-boomer generation:
