They didn't really spell it out. Serling was taking a shot at HUAC, using sci-fi as the cover. He had the aliens very clearly spell out what he was saying about the blacklist and the witch hunts. Hiding the subtext in plain sight exposition.
I really think better writing and art comes out of varying levels of censorship that open artistic freedom. The artists have to work harder and be more subtle in getting their meaning across, such as the similar "Crucible". Compare to "Piss Christ" and other such stuff, which just seems self-indulgent and provocative for the sake of being provocative in comparison.
I'm going to have to guess the party has no one who earned a job on their own merits? They really have no choice but to puick some loser who wouldn't qualify as "Wal-Mart Greeter" if he didn't inherit his job from "Daddy"?
Let's hear it for the Party of the People (who are in the inheritor class).
Great! Someone who's major qualification and justification for his job being related to someone else supported someone who's major qualification justification of her run was being related to someone else.
I was insulting caucuses and SDs back in 2003-2004, for exactly the reasons the PUMAs now whine about,.
Funny thing, many of the biggeest PUMA blow hards, like Ron "Angus McSneery" K were on the other side of this back then. They thought they owned the party apparatus and loved themselves some undemocratic caucuses and SDs, because it would allow them to use them to their advantage.
I remember on Kos in 2004 telling McSneery to watch out, because it may just be the Dean crowd answering the phones in 2007-2008, so they want to make things more democratic.
