Posthumous Green Award

April 3, 2010 at 10:21 am 1 comment

I like to keep my readers on their toes, so here’s one to make you think. This week’s coveted award goes to Gene Roddenberry, creator of Star Trek. Strange though this may sound to non-Trekkies, it’s on the mark – Mr Roddenberry introduced left-leaning social values, carefully disguised as nerdy sci-fi, into the red states literally decades before anyone else dared to boldly go there. As for the environment, check out ‘Force of Nature’ from The Next Generation in 1993- green values in the cosmos!

    Some of your readers are old enough to have seen ‘Star Trek’ first time around!

    I agree about Gene Roddenberry – he was influenced by progressive, even Green ideas, even then.

    But I think with hindsight we will conclude that more and more people were, not least because those who weren’t will increasingly be forgotten as not relevant. There are also special case. When David Icke – he of the illuminating twelve foot lizards, the family relationship with God, and the isle of Arran falling into the sea – is forgotten, I think people will be taking our Green message seriously.

How cold is my valley?

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
