    In the era of increasing connectivity it is not uncommon to hear people's fears of the Borg. But the process has already begun so we may as well get accustomed to the idea.

    Let's consider the good things about being a Borg.*

    -Strong sense of community and purpose. You can always trust your fellow Borg to help you in the collective journey to reach perfection.

    -The most advanced technology to improve quality of life. Think augmentations, space travel and the fastest virtual communication.

    -Participatory democracy. Each Borg has a vote but all Borg must accept the consequences of the voting. So for example if 51% voted for something stupid like leaving a union and stabbing the union members in the back the 49% would have to agree to the decision. But we are talking about a super intelligent hive mind so of course in the pursuit of knowledge they would assimilate. Therefore, you can always trust the Borg hive mind to make the best decisions.

    So taking all of these positive points into account, would being part of the Borg be that bad?

    *For the purposes of analysis we are disregarding the Borg Queen because she shouldn't exist.
