He's from the government, and he's here to help.

Yeah Riiiiight.

I assume this story was plotted out well in advance of the current pandemic, but there are certainly some uncomfortable parallels to the creeping (if not galloping) authoritarian measures taking place around the globe right now.

Slippery slope?  What slope?  That's jumping right off the cliff.

Right? Talk about your non-starter.

Wish I could still see the transcript for each comic.

Strip 2073 First Seen: Wed 2020-03-25

See how casually, how matter-of-fact this Ambassador rejected nearly every point of a libertarian society?  He wanted (demanded):
  • a base of operations inside their territory (and not subject to their laws)
  • a staff of 500 people (499 "infiltration agents" and one director, probably)
  • access to every person's private financial (and therefore, everything) information
  • repealing personal protection laws (leaving the population defenseless)

What a slippery slope to Communism.

If the Federation was "in on it", it was most likely they knew of the action, and merely let it happen ("Never let a good crisis go to waste.").  Rather than stop the deaths of over a million people.

Well, as of today's comic it's clear that the "Ambassador" desperately needs to be shown the nearest airlock.

And that they were almost certainly in on it, at least to some degree.

Well, I guess we can say that Bok was lucky not to be stopped and frisked.

Again, no.  True, actual Socialism can only sustained by authoritarian government force.  You can vote your way into Socialism (or Communism, which is what all Socialists actually want), but you have to shoot your way out.

At this point, I think we've hit full Princess Bride territory.  "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

Youre right on the definition. I'll stop now. That said I can tell you youre wrong on all DS supporters wanting actual socialism. I'm DS and I very much don't. I'd like public colleges to be cost free (but not eliminate private ones) and I'd like a government option for heathcare and a requirement that everyone carries health insurance just like you must carry car insurance. I still like buying things on Amazon, and going to Texas Roadhouse for dinner, and shopping for a new car though, thank you.
