Back to Babylon 5. Nearly all science fiction explores politics and society and now I have started season 3, I have just viewed the episode “Voices of Authority” where apart from having a goodie called “William Hague” which is a bit disturbing, there are several speeches by the beautiful but proto-fascist Julie Musante, which still have resonance today, as the did in the 80’s in the UK, contrasting the need for personal security and the state’s safety, against personal liberty and the right to organise and protest. Not sure I really need it but I am probably the only person still watching it.
