The Borg: Social political structure of the Assimilation.

Postby Ramsay » Fri Feb 15, 2013 12:13 pm

"You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile."
The Collective.

The Borg. The Federations's Most leathal enemy. They have blazed a Tail of Assimilation across the Alpha Quadrent and have seemingly endless numbers of Drones. In Deed one of the Worst Parts about Fighting the Borg is the Fact that there is a Good Chance that every force you send agaisnt them will infact be turned against you as they Are Assimilated. So how do you fight them? How do you Turn Away The Tides Of drones Cubes and Spheres?
Like Fighting any enemy You must First Brush up on your Art of War.

If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.

To know your enemy you must Understand your Enemy. As Being Assimilated is often A One Way trip Instead Lets' Take a moment and Evaluate the Sociological life of the Collective Mine.
The Collective has oft been compared to A Insect hive. But I feel this is rather a imperfect evaluation of a Species Dedicated to Perfection. Additionally It is almost impossible for a Human to place themselves in such a state other than perhaps too be sedated into a Zombie like state. So Then How do we place ourselves in the Hive mind. We begin by comparing Something we have in common with the Borg, Democracy.

"Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives. Democracy allows eligible citizens to participate equally—either directly or through elected representatives—in the proposal, development, and creation of laws. It encompasses social, economic and cultural conditions that enable the free and equal practice of political self-determination."

Crazy talk? How can Democracy be held in common with the Collective Mind? And there you hit the Nail on the head. The Borg is perhaps the Ultimate Collective Democracy and that is why they are so Frightening. Every act is the will of the collective. The Votes of billions perhaps Trillions of Voters, All Borg. Every act is democratic in nature.
Do We fix this? Yea or Nay? Each is carried out as the minds, wills and Aspirations of the Assimilated take their votes in real time. each command all of it is based on a Vote.
In Our lives as Humans we most often Utilize a Form of Representative Democracy. We elect Representatives to perform our will Yet the Borg take this beyond what any of us could even dream of attaining.

Every Unimatix is a Civic body The members therein numbered among them for the function of the Vote. Majority Rule is absolute. The members of the Unimatrix Decide every act in a up or down vote The decision by that is akin to a Subcommittee. That Vote is used at the local level for all needs of that Unimatrix. When United with other Unimatrix there decisiones are sorted and compiled Majority still Rules When A set number of Unimatrix are together they construct a Vinculum. The Vinculum Acts as a Kind of Ballot Box counting each vote. Each Unimatrix Receives a Vote They conduct their Vote and the winning Vote is sent to the Vinculum. When A set number of Vinculums are brought together they sort and tally each sub vote to create Consensus. This is the Will of the Collective. However As the Borg Seek Perfection they realize that in order to function they need a agenda. Agendas are not Formed by Consensus.

I am the beginning. The end. The one who is many. I am the Borg.
Borg Queen Elected Representative individual of the Collective.

The Queen Acts as Executive body, Her Voice is the Call too the Votes for the Agenda of operations. She acts as Spokesperson Speaker of the House if you will. there have at times looked too have been two Queens... This Duality is hard to grasp unless you consider that it’s possible The Queen is infact The Super Vinculum She processes and Tallies the Votes from the Vinculum’s of the Collective to which she is assigned she additionally has her own Vote. Her station is Charged to Enact Policies and Call to order for major command decisions the Will of the Borg. The Queens themselves may have some level of interaction between themselves.
this Function Allows the Collective to operate on both a Cellular local and mass collective Scale And allows When need be the Collective too in essence regenerate from attacks that seemingly render it destroyed. when The Collective detects a local attack that is rendering and could potentially destroy the Collective as a Whole. They Enact a Preservation Protocol The Queens Impose a Firewall at the top Tier Separating and isolating infected assets.Quarantining them selves and the sub Collectives under them The Queens then can order evaluation of the Cause and nature of that Threat and Adapt. Much like How individual Borg Drones line up too take fire from enemy weapons in order to analyze and evaluate incoming fire and then implement adjustments to themselves in order to counter new Threats so too Can The Collective divide itself and then dissect the Remains.

I am Locutus - of Borg. Resistance - is futile. Your life, as it has been - is over. From this time forward, you will service - us.
Locutus of Borg Selected Spokesperson For the Borg invasion of Humanity

“ You know, in some ways, you're even worse than the Borg. At least they tell you about their plans for assimilation. You're more insidious, you assimilate people - and they don't even know it.”(Former)Lt. Commander Michael Eddington, who was Arguing the reason the Federation was Fighting a in his View Unjust war against Maquis yet he hits on a point.

”Are you offering yourself to us? “
Borg Queen Too Captain Picard... Or perhaps Humanity as a Whole?

Okay So the Borg are a Democracy, And The Queens are it’s Executives... Then Who The Hell is Locutus?
The Borg Are Baffled By Humanity. Here for is a culture that seems too almost emulate the Borg in every way The Federation is like a Mirror image of the Borg, It unites seemingly unrelated peoples for the Aims of Betterment and Peace. It’s based on the Concept of the Voting will. So when the Borg First saw the Federation They through Here was a people who would be happy to fill the assimilation chambers. The Creeds of the Federation Almost seemed too the Borg like those of a Collective mate. So why Humanity resists is Baffling to them.

You can't begin to imagine the life you denied yourself.
The Borg Queen on Refusal.

Here They were These Humans who had built a Culture that looked like a Perfect mini collective just waiting for the Borg to take that next step... They expected To enter Orbit and find people Embracing them as Liberators from Individuality.. And Yet Humanity resisted.The Borg Failed to grasp that Humans want their individuality and like being imperfect. And so We resist. The Borg could have assimilated Earth with heavy handed means sending in waves of cubes too overwhelm the Federation Yet they keep on the soft sell? Why? Because The Collective is confused.

You would deny us the choice as you deny us now. You have imprisoned us in the name of humanity yet you will not grant us your most cherished human right - to choose our own fate. You are hypocritical, manipulative. We do not want to be what you are. Return us to the Collective!
7/9 Former member of the Collective upon Forceful separation.

Why Should Humanity not Capitulate? This is the Question that plagues The Collective. And perhaps it’s the best Weapon In Humanities’ Arsenal against the Borg. So long as the Borg Continue to believe that Humanity will Open its arms and embrace Assimilation the Borg will Continue to underestimate Humanity.
