Klingon Socialist Wages Lonely Battle for Respect

Sure I can fight.  But I’d much rather redistribute the respectTog Tre’Gok of the house of Tor has a unique position on the Klingon homeworld:  He is the leader of the Klingon Socialist Party.

Our full name is the “Socialist, Redistributionist and Social Justice Party of the Klingon Homeworld”.  Right now we’re a small party.  Very small.  It’s just me and my mother.  We haven’t won any seats yet in the Klingon Parliament but I’m confident that once I get my message out other Klingons will see the merits of our positions.

Despite his confidence other Klingons are dismissive.  Said Antaan Angghal of the house of Y’hporp:

“Tog is not a warrior!  The house of Tor has been shamed.”  

And therein lies the uphill battle that Tog wages to make the Klingon Socialist Party a serious player in Klingon elections.  To achieve success Tog must convince Klingons to change their very culture.

Klingons have always been self-sufficient.  They don’t really like to have other people do things for them.  It’s all based on one’s individual honor.  An outmoded concept if I may say so myself.  It’s time the Klingon Homeworld entered the 23rd century.  Why even the Vulcans have adopted socialism.  They say it’s logical.

Though the rest of the galaxy may find socialism logical Tog admits he has a long road ahead of him.

At my first debate I mentioned that it wasn’t fair that one house had more respect than others and that all houses should be equal.  I asked the audience if maybe it was time to redistribute the honor equally between all the clans.  Well, that didn’t go over to well.  They hurled insults at me.  And they threatened to cut me in half with a bat’leth.  But I guess I should have expected it.  These are simple Klingons.  They cling to bat’leths and their myths.  It’ll take some time for them to adapt to progressive ideas.

Despite the odds he remains optimistic.

I’m homeless now.  They burned down my house after the debate.  But socialism is inevitable.  It’s compassionate.  The rest of the galaxy knows this.  That’s why they adopted the system.  So I just have to be patient.  And watch out for bat’leths.

Anyone wishing to register with the Klingon Socialist Party in time for the next election should contact Tog.

“Anyone over 18 can sign up.  So drop by.  I have free donuts for those who register with us.”

    If MichelleO would just return to her homeworld, there’d then be THREE socialists on Klingon.

    Jeorge thanks.

    Inn: Yeah, but if Moochelle went back to her homeworld what would become of the boob belt industry?

  4. Free donuts? I’m so there, homie.

    Shamus: Good to know we can buy your vote.

  6. He’s really in trouble, if they’re already burning his house down at the mere mention of socialism and reaching for sharp blades, not to mention that face only a mother could love, he’s got a helluva a battle ahead of him.

    Mind you, that’s the way I like it, socialists struggling and always whining. When they’re cruising and quiet, you know they’re up to no good.
