Mark Hamill is left stunned by new Star Wars - The Last Jedi
« on: January 23, 2018, 02:15:59 AM »
Apparently Mark Hamill was not in the loop as to what was going to happen in the editing room to his character and was stunned at the premiere to see what they had done. Before the viewing he was all happy and excited, jumping around, but afterward... not so much -




He would do well to just stick with the Robot Chicken franchise -

In all honesty, I think this is yet another attempt to kill the legacy of the white man.

Blast away, ban me, whatever. I see what I see.

In all honesty, I think this is yet another attempt to kill the legacy of the white man.

The reason why I don't see it in racial terms as such, is because I've seen how badly the indigenous are still being treated both here in Australia, and America.  I don't say that as yet another attack on Whitey, as much as to point out that it isn't exclusively whites who are getting the shaft at the moment.  Humanity as a whole is, in different places, regardless of colour.

Everything I'm seeing tells me that there is an attempt to make a two-caste society on a universal level; the proverbial Eloi and Morlocks which H.G. Wells wrote about in The Time Machine.  In order to make Eloi, you have to remove their capacity for critical thinking, their desire to resist oppression, and even their ability to identify what that looks like.  The Millennials are the most obvious fruit of that campaign.

Star Wars fits into that equation in terms of being a rendition of the Hero's Journey, and an account of people who stood up against a very clear and obvious form of tyranny.  The last thing that people in power want these days, is for the majority to have that kind of image in their minds, because said majority might use it to free themselves from what is happening right now.

We're told that absolutism is anachronistic, bigoted, and wrong.  The truth, however, is the opposite.  By making everything into shades of grey, and supposedly giving everything a defensible justification, you end up with a scenario where anyone is willing to go along with anything. 

Aside from anything else, relativism is also a lie.  When was the last time you saw anyone willing to accept or justify any argument in opposition of homosexuality?  The Left has its' holy grails, and its' absolutes; but as with everything else, it refuses to be honest about that and call said absolutes what they are.

More than anything else, I'm realising I need to forgive myself for my current desire and need to be alone.  It's not about being Ebenezer Scrooge; it's about realising that 21st century urban society truly is catastrophically degenerate, and that by interacting with it, I'm not going to help anyone, and am potentially only going to harm myself.  I used to want to try and positively influence society in some way; but close to ten years on Reddit has shown me just how isolated I really am in the way I think and feel, for the most part.

I will stay online, and most likely keep using a computer; but in collective terms, it's time to let go and walk away.  The one element of Luke's depiction that I think they got right in these movies, was the fact that he was living in a cave.  In the current period, it's the right thing to do.

    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.


-- Yeats, The Second Coming.



When, owing to the influence of inferior men, mutual mistrust prevails in public life, fruitful activity is rendered impossible, because the fundaments are wrong. Therefore the superior man knows what he must do under such circumstances; he does not allow himself to be tempted by dazzling offers to take part in public activities. This would only expose him to danger, since he cannot assent to the meanness of the others. He therefore hides his worth and withdraws into seclusion.

Richard Wilhelm's commentary of Hexagram 12, from the I Ching.
"Sacred cows make the tastiest hamburgers."
