So what? In his case he's just another borganist who wants a wonderful future society where everyone thinks just like him and all dissension has vanished. That's a pretty damn evil suggestion, as far as I'm concerned, since I -- and everyone I know -- have to die in order for it to happen.

Seriously, you don't think that wanting to replace the diversity of life with bazillions of clones of yourself is evil?
