A golden helix streaked skyward from the Helvault. A thunderous explosion shattered the silver monolith and Avacyn emerged, free from her prison at last.



And? You don't have to be a capitalist society to exploit people, pre-capitalist societies were probably even worse in this regard.

Also, though tangentially, do we even know if the trade federation are capitalists? We basically never hear them talk about trading; maybe their mission is to facilitate trade across interstellar distances at a cost that allows them and their massive armies of killer death robots to operate self-sufficiently?

E:vvvv no disagreement there.

From my point of view, the Jedi are evil. But what really is... evil?

He's certainly capitalist-coded.

Their initial grievance (GRIEVOUS) was born out of anger over taxation so I'm inclined to believe that's the case

I would point out that the "heroes on both sides" is more setting, telling the audience about how the characters view their own factions, than some kind of command for the audience to accept

Did anybody see the last 8 minutes of the second episode of the disney plus gallery the mandalorian streaming television show? its about the prequels and it rules. also, no joke: as a kid my favourite star wars characters were the two pilots who get blown up at the very start of e1. why? Because their story was the most tragic.

Okay. I was just addressing this claim:

Bogus Adventure posted:

[Nute Gunray] helped bring down an evil capitalist empire, though...

He didn't do that. He did the opposite, turning it into something worse.

Speaking of Nute Gunray, that is Silas Carson ordering his own execution.
