    Call me curious, what do you mean with that? Some special snowflakes who use the morality of Star Wars in reality to define good and evil?

    For me Star Wars was mostly about entertainment, just classic themes and tropes to tell space fantasy stories, but I never really saw them as any analogues to real situations.

    That doesn't bode well.

    One of the writters of the new Rougue One movie stated that the Nazi inspired Empire was GASP nazis, then the typical right wing easily triggered neo nazi edgelords threw a big stink about that and then the opposing side started elevating the smplistic SW narrative as an amazing statement. Both sides are morons.

    I'd say, way to turn a space fantasy science movie franchise into some sort of political statement, and trying to whitewash the nazi movement (which I assume some people tried)
    Anyway, nothing new and nothing worth debating.

    The Empire/First Order isn't even that much of a monster, creepy overlord chief of state, genocide-o-tron 3000 and a disposable army; to me that's better thab an unkillable array of racially diverse Mary Sues.

    I miss the time when stuff was good, bad, so bad it was good, entertaining, boring, etc.
    I don't understand why now people think everything has a political side. Not everything has it! If you think they do, you have problems and are reading too much into it. Back a decade TV/movies didn't have political agenda, they were entertainment. Ones with that were obvious.

    Everything will reflect the beliefs of the writter, and if we seek to excise that from literature or art in general we end up with a bunch of generic shit. Now it's the work of a good writter and artist to not make the political stuff not be too overwhelming or heavy handed.
