There's an enormous gulf of difference between the word and the action.

I get intensely nervous when people want to charge someone with child abuse or molestation simply because they wrote a story where a child is sexually abused. That's written into law in some parts of the world, and it's damn scary.

Oh, to be sure. I know these are difficult questions to broach. It is interesting, for my own selfish part, that supposedly left-wing theoretical positions can double back on themselves to the point where they serve the same purpose as right-wing ones.

One of the themes in the Dalek episode of the new Doctor Who deals very much with that.

The doctor has spent a good portion of his life fighting and became the last of his race because of the Daleks. Then, in this episode, he's faced with a "last" Dalek. Part way through, the Dalek says to the doctor, "You would make a very good Dalek".

And at that point, you know it's true and so does he, and it stops him cold. It's an amazing moment.

Fascinating. We never watch TV, of course. But if we did, I want to watch that.
