  • Great critique of global hegemonism by Daniel

    Great critique of Neocon global hegemonism by Dr. Daniel Jackson, the conscience of SG-1.

    Major Paul Davis: That's not the point.

    Dr. Daniel Jackson: Isn't an economically more stable Russia better for everyone?

    Davis: We don't know who they'll turn around and sell the technology to!

    Daniel: So all this time we've been using the gate to save the world, we've really only been saving the good old US of A?

    This hegemonism was implicit in the years of USAF monopoly over the Stargate.

    More than once, use of the Stargate has nearly led to the extermination of the entire human race, not just Americans. So why is the Stargate under the exclusive control of the US federal government?

    To their credit, the injustice of this situation eventually dawned on the series' writers. Hence the long overdue Daniel Jackson statement.
