Re: Trump's Trek

Now it just means kill the Other,

I presume that is where your reference to Trump is coming from (and nowhere might I add, has Trump ever advocated killing anyone).

I saw it as a parable of the "collective" vs the individual (or Neitschen "superman"), or in politocal terms the leftist versus the libertarian. Krull was quoting , or at least paraphrasing Neitsche, and was having collectivist theory thrown back at him - they were really really belabouring both points - "The twig in a bundle" etc , Kirk, although he acts as a Neitschen superman, "its the whole team" stuff at the end - I saw a Krull = Trump undertone
