The problem with the off left position is that you cannot indefinitely suppress people that way either. You complain that right wingers want to beat down everyone else and achieve dominance that way nstead of a common good co-operative, but the common good co-operative is designed to replace individuality for the convenience of percieved civility and stability. You know where that runs the risk of going..................you don't have to be told.

Eventually, the desire to reassert raises it's head and you have your own troubles.

Of course, what the Federation really is is kept vague but Eddington himself pointed out the Federation' s biggest problem is it could not understand why someone would not want to live within it. It can't concieve of people saying 'No' to what it offers. If we even knew what it truly offered in day to day meaning.
