    Yeah, but Charlaquin, that all sounds like a whole lot of work to fix something that doesn't really involve me and it sounds way to difficult too bother understanding in the first place. Plus, hearing about all this stuff really bums me out and I sort of wish everyone would just stop talking about it. How about instead I just like a BLM post on Facebook (which I didn't read) and wish everyone who isn't me or part of my immediate social circle good luck?

    Probably not very helpful, but hey, at least I don't feel my cis-hetero-white-male-upper class guilt anymore. So you know, there's...

    But why should it map towards a desire to destroy rigid ideologies? Why would the Force even care about that? Hell, if Luke was supposed to a glorious new beginning for Force-education freed from religious dogma, why did it allow Kylo Ren to destroy Luke's fancy new Order?

    It makes sense to me that the Force has no will or desire whatsoever and instead just empowers anyone who does. The original Jedi Order fell because Sheev really, really desired them to fall and worked really, really worked hard to accomplish it. The reason why the Sith fell is because Anakin really, really didn't...

    Did I say that the Jedi were perfect unicorns? No I don't think I did. Besides, the Jedi are more like sage mountain goats.

    Also, I was commenting on the idea the Force "willing" the destruction of the Jedi and Sith probably wasn't worth the Clone Wars and the Galactic Civil War....

    And all it cost was two horrific intergalactic wars and the near genocide of an entire religious/peacekeeping organization.

    The Force works in mysterious ways, I guess.

    Personally, I think the Force isn't alive or sentient in anyway we would understand. There's also probably no Light side or Dark side. To me it's just a Tool that connects and corespondents to random people's Will and Desires allowing said people to achieve what they want through single-minded Willpower*. That's why the Jedi were so obsessed with getting rid of distracting temptations and desires that...

    Off-scene death, I imagine. Then again with CGI Tarkin in Rogue One anything is possible....

    Just watched the Girl King. It was a deliciously weird costume drama with lesbians. So it was definitely time well spent.

    replied to Which New Pantheons do you want?
    Yeah, that's seems like a thing that most pantheons would not be happy with. In fact, I'd imagine that's one of the major reasons why most decided to stop overtly interacting with the World in the first place....

  • So, basically not a mainstream comicbook universe where Captain Marvel can be a ridiculous fascist (looking at you Bendis) in one book and an actual three-dimensional character in another?

    Yeah, I think I can get behind that....

    Not gonna lie, but Lisa from Weird Science was an inspiration for a Scion I've been brainstorming. I was just to ashamed to ask about its feasibility in the setting.

    Thanks by the way Heliomance for indirectly answering a question for me....

  • Yeah, I don't see how this is a major problem. Just because Zeus or Thor are blatantly running in the World and God isn't doesn't mean that a member of the Abrahamic religions would have to admit to the former being gods. Someone could easily consider them to not be on account of some moral, spiritual, or defintional consideration. It might not make sense, but faith doesn't necessary have to in the first place, so why make a big deal about it....

    The entire 2016 election practically was a Greek tragedy.

    Or it was a spectacular comedy depending on your point of view....

    That's very logical Heavy Arms and makes a whole lot of sense. Unfortunately, logic based on fact and perception based on what you hear aren't always the same. Everyone said that Clinton was the firm establishment candidate who wouldn't deviate from the political norm and that suddenly became fact regardless of Clinton's actual record or promises.

    Clinton being a Centre-Left Neoliberal and Bernie being a Left Socialist is easy to understand and thus easier to tell everyone on major news networks and social media. Anything more complex wouldn't feed into the political tribalism that...

    That's only true if everyone in America had the same, or even similar, criteria for what makes a credible president.

    The reasons why Trump is a monstrous prick in your eyes is the same reasons why people liked him and voted for him in droves.

    There was always going to be a contest even if a lot of people found it morally unacceptable....

    Maybe if he spent more of his time training instead having sexy times he wouldn't be so sucky at his primary job.

    Hmm, maybe that's why Athena decided to be a virigin goddess. Far less distractions that way....

    I suppose that pretty much is the real problem in politics. Hidebound voters refusing to accept policies that come from the other side of the aisle, even when they agree with them or desperately need them.

    Also, I'm kind of starting to get annoyed by every political pundit in the world trying to create these singular silver bullet reasons as to why Trump won. It was gerrymanding, it was sexism, it was the rise of the Alt-Right, it was political correctness and SJW's, it was Russia, it was BernieBros, it was the Rust Belt, it was Hillary being a weak Centre-Left candidate, it was a...

    That sort of thing wouldn't have been a problem if they didn't think that building superweapons was a great idea, which was a thing they were developing even before the Rebellion was formed. Also, I've read the new canon Star Wars Novel Bloodline (it was real good!) and it outright states that the Death Star was made by planet-wide slave labor. So you don't have to worry about jobs lost.

    Pretty shitty thing to do but at least the Empire was stable, right?

    Hope that this doesn't come across as to antagonist, but I just don't think the Empire's supposed stability makes...

    I don't know, nofather. If just doing your job means destroying an entire civilization you're probably evil by apathy. Pretty sure most of the free world was decided that just following orders isn't a good excuse for genocide....

    I suppose your right. It's just that even in Rogue One I couldn't help but think that sure the Rebel Alliance did bad things but at least their mildly apologetic about it and are not literally Space-Nazis. Even the idea of lesser of two evils lose is its punch to me when one side is Blackier than Black Evil. Plus, the Empire's stability and order seems pretty bankrupt when you consider that only old white British man seem to have any power and that its leader is pretty much pure evil. Order is worth nothing when freedom and social mobility is non-existent.

    Chances are the only real...

    I doubt that's going to happen with EP 8. I mean, how could it? A morally grey conflict, at least in my opinion, requires that both sides to be sympathetic. The First Order has already committed five counts of genocide in EP 7 and has been flat out compared by Abrams as a fusion of the Nazis that fled to Argentina and ISIL. Pretty hard to feel anything but loathing for such a group, but I guess anything is possible. Personally I was felt that Star Wars Good vs Evil nature was fine so as long as the good guys were interesting and the bad guys were threatening....
