If you're the kind of person that would stick the muzzle of a loaded pistol in your mouth and squeeze the trigger, then we all have a problem, unless... The hammer drops.
Not sure I understand what you mean here, there's a problem if someone tries to shoot themselves and they don't die but if the "hammer drops" meaning the gun goes off there is no problem? What were you trying to say here?
I completely agree with "do unto others as you would have them do unto you"
"putting the cart before the horse" is what I'm worried about because of the psychopaths that are in charge who will do just that.
In regard to the connection to RAND, Opsecnews states:
According to the TrekPlace website Harvey P. Lynn, Jr. (?-1987), a member of the prestigious RAND Corporation, provided Star Trek original series creator Gene Roddenberry with scientific and technical advice during preproduction of the series.
On the Rand Corporation’s website the question is asked whether a RAND researcher designed the initial bridge of the Enterprise. The answer given is, “A Rand researcher, Harvey Lynn, was consulted, but as a private citizen, not as part of a RAND project.”
However in an interview from 1965 Jeffrey Hunter, who played captain Christopher Pike in the Star Trek pilot “The Cage” and preceded William Shatner as first captain of the Enterprise stated “The things that intrigues me the most is that it is actually based on the Rand Corporation’s projection of things to come. Except for the fictional characters, it will be like getting a look into the future and some of the predictions will surely come true in our lifetime.”
