Thanks for this perceptive essay and review. I've bought the first season (1964) and watched most of it. An admirable program all the way. I've been meaning to pick up more seasons.
Regarding: "... before the flashpoint that caused so many to retreat from public
bonds into an increasingly aggrandized, self-serving privation. (We see how far
we've traveled from the message in "Ill Wind" by recent events, which privilege
a bankrupt neo-tribalism as a pretext for excluding the victims of circumstances
that were brought on by a lack of public vigilance--and NOT a failure of the
principles so many chose to willfully reject.)
I'm lost. Do explicate.
