Who ... What ... are the BORG?

 
BORG are 'cybernetically enhanced HUMANOID DRONES
organized as an 
INTERCONNECTED COLLECTIVE, the decisions
of which are made by a 
HIVE MIND, which is the
'collective sharing of minds into a 
SINGLE CONSCIOUSNESS',
'serving and driving the goals of its entire population'.

BORG 'employ processes in which NEGATIVE FEEDBACK keeps their
system in a particular state, on course towards a particular goal'.

The
BORG 'have become a metaphor for any collective force
of like-minded individuals determined to 
ASSIMILATE others
in order to increase the size and power of their 
COLLECTIVE'.
[1]

For example, the 'reigning education establishment' or
the powerful 
COMPOSITION COLLECTIVE and the 'indoctrination'
that 'has been blindly accepted as genuine teaching,
instead of being abominated as a vicious counterfeit of it'.
[2]

And we are warned that 
RESISTANCE IS FUTILE and if we dare to
question them or challenge them, they will 
TERMINATE us, instead
of nurturing us, guiding us and in turn empowering us.
