As River Tam once said: "People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome."I also think the Operative is akin to liberal technocrats, with the exception that liberal technocrats don't have the self-awareness to know what they're doing is evil.Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: I don't murder children.The Operative: I do. If I have to.Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: Why? Do you even know why they sent you?The Operative: It's not my place to ask. I believe in something greater than myself. A better world. A world without sin.Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: So me and mine gotta lay down and die... so you can live in your better world?The Operative: I'm not going to live there. There's no place for me there...any more than there is for you. Malcolm, I'm a monster. What I do is evil. I have no illusions about it, but it must be done.

Funny his own bigotry doesn't appear to him.
