Is humanity destined to become like "The Borg"?

Comments Filter:
  • No, only the Borg think resistance is futile. Humanity thinks resistance is measured in ohms. However the borgs signature characteristic wasn't their ability to communicate electronically, it was their assimilation directive. Western society values individuality, so I can see that increasing instead of diminishing. I do not think Humanity will enjoy voiceless and gestureless communication, we as a species enjoy flourish with our communication.
