Why Star Wars is Better than Star Trek

January 11, 2017

I don’t agree, but Peter Thiel’s argument is mighty tempting:

Dowd: You like “Star Trek” more than “Star Wars.”

Thief: Deny. I like “Star Wars” way better. I’m a capitalist. “Star Wars” is the capitalist show. “Star Trek” is the communist one. There is no money in “Star Trek” because you just have the transporter machine that can make anything you need. The whole plot of “Star Wars” starts with Han Solo having this debt that he owes and so the plot in “Star Wars” is driven by money.

    “Thief” is an idiot. It’s called a replicator, not a transporter. What happened to the racism? Won’t anyone think of the poor space nazis?

        This made me laugh. BTW, there’s nothing capitalistic about a crime lord, losing his “investment”, sending out space thugs to get paid anyway. It’s as capitalistic as Dubya giving the banksters their bailout.

          ^ Your metaphors are weak old man. It’s simple:

          Emperor Soros — DEAD
          Darth Soetoro — DEAD

          Donald Jedi Trump?
          …leading the rebellion who just blew up your death-star!!!
