The Plot of Star Wars Frighteningly Resembles Modern Day America
my take from star wars is that not everything the jedi said or did was right, just like not everything the sith did or said was wrong. they both had their problems. i only realized this recently, after i understood it to be the same thing in the matrix trilogy.
on top of that i think its very important message that the "good guys" are actively engaged with democracy and rebelling however they can. if only more people would do this!
i was also thinking its well timed star wars is released when america is wrestling with its own bubbling fascism.
star wars is a mirror for americans:
the "good guys" are the groups of people around the world the american government typically bombs, and the "bad guys" are your government and you if you side with the government
I always wanted to be a bad guy .
I look good in black .
power has its perks
The Canadians are the planet that gets blown up because they can't protect themselves.
yea i think when the "terrorists" get their revenge and drop the bomb on you, that im gonna feel the pain too living in a city so close to the border.
I pity you when all those welfare babies jump the fence after this gov't collapses and stops paying them .
the corporate welfare babies? or the african in a cadillac?
i like george because he explains what his trilogy is about. whereas the wachowskis typically have followed the "learning is what you discover, not what you cover" mantra.
Only [humans] can exchange information. And the test of how accurate the information is will be whether we all die or not. If we all die, then it wasn’t the right information. I would rather see us be a positive force in the universe than a cancer. We have the knowledge to be either one. That, in essence, is what “Star Wars” is about. We are both good and evil, and we have a choice.3
yoda speaks in terms of allies
the sith have a master / servant relationship
capitalism resembles the master servant relationship
socialism a much stronger master / slave relationship
depends on what kind of socialism your talking about
Friend of mine wrote this piece about reasons Star Wars was written and rings with people. And having seen Force Awakens last week myself, it did come off as a reboot of New Hope and yet again, our new protagonist has family issues.
The Main And Overlooked Reason Star Wars Is So Popular
“I sold them to the white slavers that takes these things, and…,” Lucas said before laughing and deciding it better not to finish.
