The Borg Below
I was intrigued by Kevin D. Williamson’s “Borg Queen” (May 6). It reminded me of the contrast between the junior devil’s “Enemy” and his “Father Below” in Chapter Eight of C. S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters. God, the “Enemy,” wants to make sons out of his believing followers. The “Father Below” (guess who) wants to “absorb” in body, mind, and will those who end up in his clutches. The progressive “queen” in charge of government, as Williamson describes it, appears to have a similar aim.
