Prime Directives in a Galaxy Far, Far Away: The Politics of Star Trek and Star Wars

There’s more to life than “The Force”. Star Wars and Star Trek are great adventure stories, but they also propagate a particular view of how the world should be. Ilya Somin, Professor of Law at George Mason University and adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute will give a talk on the politics of how these imaginary worlds work, and what we’re ingesting, along with the adventure and romance. He may even settle questions such as whether the Rebel Alliance is a terrorist organisation which the Empire is fully entitled to subdue and destroy! Even if you’re not a Star Wars enthusiast or a Trekky it will be well-worth attending.
