Great quote from a "founding father"

"Nothing in this world doth more resemble heavenly happiness, than for men to live as one, being of one heart, and one soul; neither any thing more resembles hellish horror, then for every man to shift for himself" Deacon Robert Cushman, 1621 at Plymouth, Massachusetts Colony

2. That would be "one mind"...

as I understand it Borg don't have emotions so concepts like "heart" and "soul" don't apply to them (although I'm not a Trek expert so I'm willing to be corrected).

The above quote reminds me of something an anarchist friend of mine always says: "there's only one race - the human race".
