    Imagine to be this woke.
    This article has lost points on reality... But they are obsessed with the "Wokeness"

    While ignoring most of the stuff in SW had being built for World Building story wise... This article is absurd and its written by the scientificamerican..
    Why the Term Jedi Is Problematic for Describing Programs That Promote Justice, Equity,Diversity and Inclusion.
    Imagine to be this woke and to proclaim that The Space opera franchisee SW had its success because of trafficking and "Salve Leia" and to prefer to call the Jedi white saviroris.

    Blacks are treated poorly in Star Wars as I recall

    So maybe they are onto something

    This vetting of past society through a modern lens is a literal mental illness. It's another sign of an uninspired and stagnant society. Instead of creating, most people are resorting to auditing.....

    Sad state of affairs.

    When I was a PhD candidate, my male professors used to integrate similar shit into our seminars because, well, they felt obligated...it’s their job to show as many “valid” published opinions as they can muster in a weekly, three-hour seminar.

    looking back as I get older, recalling their responses and deliveries, I realize they were just being polite. They knew all of this stuff was horseshit back then (8-10 yrs ago), just like it is now.

    30 seconds Google uncovers that the lead author JW Hammond is doing a postdoc in nonsense, "his interests and influences include critical theory, education reform rhetoric, critical race theory, critical historiography, disability studies, and (new/digital) media studies."

    This is basically what happens when you train professional activists. They go into the world and write nonsense; it's literally all they know how to do. If you're at the point of doing a postdoc on shit like this, you're deep down in the bog of nonsense - so long in your echo-chamber you probably have no clue what reality is anymore.

    I saw this article being mentioned on a blog a couple of days ago. Some wondered if it was a parody. The whole thing is daft, if the author is being serious.

    ---

    Ok, now going off on a tangent...

    After watching endless YT videos on Star Wars lore , I got to thinking that the Jedi aren't as great as everyone believes them to be. I have mentioned this before in Mayberry : it was pretty dam shitty of the Jedi to just abandon Anakin's mother when they took Anakin . Why didn't they free her from slavery ? And indoctrinating kids from a young age the way they do shouldn't be a good thing.

    Without spoiling everything here. Lets just say the Sith found a way to take the advantage of the Jedi. Where Jedi themselves have not seen it.

    I know, thought maybe you dredged this up from some random hack site but I was a bit shocked to see it was SA.
    I'm okay with media criticism but this is just getting ridiculous. Its like there's a checklist and you can go judge any past work according to the check list and almost autogenerate a "critical" essay on it.
    Imagine applying the values of 21st century liberalism to the fucking Jedi Order lmao.

    If you're world building for a fantastical science fiction universe and your characters mirror your audience's values then you're a scrub.
