This makes me chuckle at how true it is.

Granted, my Tactical Captain is rather skilled at ground combat, you'd think he'd just Kirk drop-kick any boarders through the view screen if they made it to the bridge.
Constant exposure to the same opinions leads to continual reinforcement of ideas until eventually, any challenge, no matter what form it takes, is going to be met with a disproportionate sense of outrage. Room for reasoned discussion can no longer occur.
