You mean Gene Roddenberry, the show's creator. Not William Shatner, the star. It was Roddenberry who came up with all those ideas. Could you please give us a link to the source of that so-called "fact"? Surely you understand that while life imitates art, the opposite is also true. This is not the USSR. Nobody's stopping you from leaving if you don't like it here. How could you possibly stay and raise children in the USA if you think it's such a bad place? Weren't they subject to all those evil influences? Oh wait, they were. I remember you told us that one of your sons grew up to be a paid professional killer. He must have learned that from the movies. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Anyway, I repeat what I said to Green Boy: Life does indeed imitate art, but art also imitates life. The majority of the violence on earth is perpetrated by governments, not by individuals. Governments are not influenced very much by movies. They tend to be more influenced by religions. So if you want to end violence, let's outlaw religion.
