Hoping someone can expand and provide some more context for some thoughts i've been having lately. For example in this clip from the latest mandalorian(don't watch if you don't want spoilers). The defeat of the empire and the second death star was originally a simple happy(if not lazy) ending to a series of adventure films. Now it's always kind of, for lack of a better term, deconstructed.

My earliest memory of this is Clerks. if memory serves that one was actually a conversation about the first death star blowing up and how it made luke skywalker a murderer or something. But it was supposed to be a half joking kind of thing. Now that ironic reflexivity seems to have totally replaced any kind of genuine sentiment.

Now look I know this is easily explained by shitty writing and copyright licenses. The property of star wars makes money so you have to find a way to keep milking it and since people already own their own copies of the original, it has to be sequels that don't depart too far from the original or else it it'll become something else and possibly not make as much money. But my point is that it creates a very actual shadow of circular recurrence over the society thats watching this. A sort of cynical defeatism where nothing can ever get better and disrupting the status quo will only ever lead you back to the original struggle anyway. Things can't end, so things can't change.

Is this the same premise as the Book from late Mark Fisher, what's it called again ? A yes Capitalist realism !?
Stop consuming big budget culture industry that is stuck on a depressing repeat because of capitalism. You can divert your attention away from that, and towards smaller budget production or even just indie artists that tell better stories. When you find something you like tell other people about it. I know that the old established IPs about space operas have turned to shit where people suffer as much as today but with better technology. Find the new IPs that aren't about dogshit futures. There's even a thread >>8338 for this in the /hobby/ catalogue already.

Basically as cliches and tropes arise they get noticed and after a while it's "not cool" to lie them, so they get deconstructed or subverted or whatever to be 'hip and cool'.

That's the gist of it.

>The message of the story was that we need to reduce population
huh, no, the message was that malthussian retards in power will want to do so in the light of ecological collapse, not that it's a good thing, as they're always the antagonists. I liked how it showed institutional power subservient to a secret agency apparitus, just like they are in reality with US empire and capital interest (very apparent in the assange case for example).

I found the directing, music and aesthetics amazing, and the plot/chars were great. One of my fav show. Yeah season 2 was not as good, but still good, and one really gripped me in.

How do I subtly inject anti-capitalist ideals into my Starfinder game? Players know I'm a commie so it has to be very subtle. Any ideas?

 No.11628

I approve of this idea however this belongs on >>>/games/ comrade. They actually have some good threads about games with communist ideas that you can find ideas for.

The basic rule however is that you have to avoid using the words communism or direct socialist symbolism (hammer and sickle on a red flag) because most people shy away from that like a horse from fire. Something clver I've seen is using small uncited quotes of various socialist leaders and theorists and having characters state them in appropriate situations as a subtle commie-pill as well.

Just watched it. It sucked. Totally unnecessary sequel. It was much less ambitious or outrageous than the first, and barely had any decent gags. All of the stuff they were mocking are things we all already know about. There's nothing funny or revelatory or even interesting, really, just laughing at dumb Americans. If anything what's on display here in parody is more tame than the reality. The brand of humor feels extremely dated, too, which brings me to my other takeaway.

It feels out of touch about racism. Cohen is more interested in anti-Semitism specifically, which is whatever, but any other racism at most gets a throwaway line (kids in cages). What's even weirder is the one black person in the movie functions as a "magical negro" (both for Tutar and Borat) in the story they're telling to connect the skits together. With everything happening related to racism, that's all they could come up with?

So I watched these films just now. Well, watched might not be right, saw the first 30 minutes of the first one, then about 20 of the second one and proceeded to delete both from my hard drive.

These movies make me hate US more than I did before. Literally the peak example of burger exceptionalism as well as the most-of-the-time covert liberal racism and chauvinism. Its the modern version of having "Laugh at the nigger in a cage" circus attraction colonialist powers loved. All of the humor can be sorted into two camps of vulgar "lmao benis xDDDD" shit, and INCREDIBLY racist "laugh at the slavnigger savage" crap. Or more likely a mix of the two: "XDDD Borat eat wife breast cheese", "LMAO Borat retard son rape sister", "Borat want bussy magnet XXD" "XDDDDDD Nazarbayev skinned a mans dick". Second movie starts with a fucking gulag joke, in 2020 Kazakhstan. Lmao slavs love them gulags, am I rite XXDDDD. What is more strange… THIS IS A FUCKING LIBTARD MOVIE. The retards who get their pants in a twist when you raise the question that zoomies turning "non binary" on mass might be just a result of youth rebelliousness happily soyface over this racist shit inb4 I am called a /pol/yp for this. As I said, its peak liberal chauvanism: "America can have its problems, but we are the land of the free, unlike those problematic savages". Khruschev should have vapourized your nation off the face of the planet. You all deserve the Utopia of the rest of the world that Handmaids Tale scenario would be. DIE

yeah, I watched Borat 1 as a teen and it was burger as fuck, mostly cringe

an example of a good culture-mocking movie from that time would be Jay & Silent Bob, they even shat on capeshit before the rise of Marvel

Only saw the first season of TMTHC and loved it, but I could tell that once it got past the plot of the book itself it would run right into bad writing.

I kinda liked TMITHC, honestly, if it wasn't cancelled I'm pretty sure it would've gotten more time for things like the BCR and the multiverse plotpoints to develop

well most of its humor is from parody naturally arising from introspection of cartoon actions and logic in a more grounded world, so while the show always has a stern face about it the actual world is always funny because of the banality of both good and evil as a system that seeks to perpetuate each other to keep securing funding. People having passions and dreams in such a mechanically dream-crushing system is always going to be funny and/or tragic as a consequence.
