|A Borg Drone|
The drones the make up the Borg have no rights to speak of, but their needs are taken care of (as with collectivism the citizenry has no rights). With the Borg, the drones are all equal, have a job, food the eat, a place to call home and medical care if necessary. The needs of the drones are determined by the Borg and in a collective society the needs are determined by what the state thinks most people need most of the time; nothing else. Further all needs are mean tested. Socialized Medicine is an excellent example. With Socialized Medicine (or the coming Obamacare), medical costs are lowered by reducing doctor compensation and medical care is rationed (during it's implementation the facilitators lie a lot). Of the $2.6 trillion spent annually on medical care, almost a third is spent on those 69 or older. As a collective issue it makes no sense; those resources are better redistributed for other needs. In Britain medical care is means tested; a year of a persons life is worth about $40,000 to extend; so if a $100,000 operation will only extend an elderly persons life 2 years, than it would be denied. Something I'm sure would work into the Borg collective consciousness quite well.
The unfortunate end game with collectivism has always been genocide, because in real life the only collective consciousness is the historical struggle by humanity as a whole to be free; it's simply human nature to pursue individual rights and freedom often to the death; it's in our our DNA. .
