7. It was the Star Trek trick. He originated it.

He could make all the social criticism he wanted, with impunity, and get it past the censors, if he put it in the context of worlds and people who were clearly "not us."

And if you have any doubt at all that that was his intent from the very start, continue watching the next part of the interview...


But the strategy absolutely depends on his telling that "fib." Especially since he was, in fact, Rod Serling, who already had a reputation for controversy.
