TNG, "The Measure of a Man": Riker should not have been forced to argue against Data.

In the TNG episode “The Measure of a Man”, Data’s right to autonomy and status as a sentient (technically, sapient) being is called into question. A starfleet admiral holds a trial requiring the first and second officers of the Enterprise to act as counsel. Picard is assigned to defend Data which he…

That might not be half bad. International conflicts would be solved by the respective leaders wrestling instead of, ya know, war.


They’ll probably screech something about “Russian bots” and go back to distilling foreigners to stereotypes or cheering on Nazis.


Because the other ones are doing the scruteny so they obviously exempt themselves from it.



that SCP stuff is licensed under creative commons, so maybe it could be called the SCP Foundation still.

I’m more worried about tratrademark litigation than copyright litigation. Even if SCP is creative commons, they most likely still have a trademark on the name.


The hour hand fell off and landed on the page number of the book below.


That time of day for a broken clock it seems.


usually a white saviour complex embedded in the Foundation or GOC

One of my biggest in-universe issues with the SCP Foundation is that they contain literally everything that’s vaguely “supernatural”. If an entity doesn’t pose a danger to humans, no matter how supernatural it is, who exactly are you protecting by containing it? This wouldn’t necessarily be problematic on its own, but is when you consider that most of their objects seem to possess some degree of intelligence. In that case, don’t they deserve rights? IMO, this is “human supremicist”.


Chemical and Biological weapons are illegal, but I also don’t see the moral use case of them from people who are supposedly liberating their fellow worker, so imo that one would contradict them.

I’m curious if you think there’s a difference between, say, poisoning an entire building or city’s water supply, versus targeted person-specific poisoning of key ruling figures to quietly assassinate them and eliminate them from being able to aid the reactionary State (which is the kind I was getting at). Would both be contradictions? What would set the former apart from assassination with a gun for example? (BTW I don’t claim to support either IRL, obviously that would be different from fiction.)


I’m thinking of something like /c/left_scp or /c/socialistcontainprotect (not sure if the last one exceeds character limit tho).

Or maybe we should ditch the “SCP” name and come up with our very own org name? Especially since then they can’t sue us if this ever gets big. To that end, I’m thinking of something like the “Ministry of the Supernatural”, the “Yāoguài Institute” (Pinyin of 妖怪, Mandarin Chinese for “monster”, “goul”, “demon”, or supernatural entities in general), or the “Bytiye Institute” (Romanisation of бытие, Russian for “being”, “entity”, or “existence”). Thoughts?

@PropagandaBot@lemmygrad.ml, do you have any thoughts? I definitely want you on board if a community gets created!

I don’t live there and this isn’t my picture, sorry.





Also, anyone here know about Mother Horse Eyes? If we were to do a Leftist SCP, I propose we also incorporate some aspects of that series, it sure sent a chill down my spine first time I read it.


Yes! Hell yeah! I love worldbuilding and fictional “scientific” writings, and I’ve been itching to write or roleplay with leftists!

I have a number of writings similar to SCP format already if you want writing samples for onboarding! You can see my favourite works here! and here!

Is there a Lemmy community for this?








It’s nothing like 1984 or Animal Farm! Those are the two canonical communisms!


He can’t feel discomfort he IS discomfort.


I bet, I JUST BET that she would defend to the death the US’s war crimes in Vietnam and Korea because “HURR DURR THE COMMIES WERE ATTACKING OUR FRIENDS!”
