Warning: This is Mr Locke not Mr Marc (a forwarded email)
From: Marc Thomas
Hello Trek TV, This is Mister Locke. Thank you, I am fine and you?
It just occurred to me, that when referencing the Borg we employ plural pronouns. As a collective, ought Borg be regarded as a single entity, Borg is the epitome of Von Neumann's 'singularity' .
I believe your new Brazilian guest host got it right initially until peer pressure drove her into linguistic compliance.
We could, appropriately, be using the singular and non-binary 'they' when speaking of 'them' but when they address us as 'we' it confounds our efforts to be respectful and accurate. Maybe I'll have a different perspective, post assimilation. I wonder how the drones of Landru (Return of the Archons) handled this issue, but not too much. There's a lot going on right now.
Ours sincerely, Mr. Locke.
