RE: Disney Star Wars
Millennials haven't yet proven themselves to have sound decision making on the whole. Occupy Wall Street is a great example of that, a bunch of millennials camping out in protest pretending they actually know what they're protesting and why and that they have a constructive and viable solution when they could have been doing something productive instead.

Kylo Ren is very much an accurate portrayal of millennials so far.

Never thought of that. Very interesting...

RE: Disney Star Wars
That's a bit of a generalization don't ya think? I'm a millennial, what am I supposed to think about that post?

Some clarification just so that we're on the same page.

It's true at some times I feel more powerful than the men 20 years my elder. I don't think it's about not working hard enough for what we want but the shame that is dumped on others when our belief for what is deserved is so strong. That doesn't sound perfect I know but there's a power struggle between our independence and equality to our predecessors ego.

So true. I experienced that a LOT in sales. Older men seem to believe they deserve more respect than they give out.

However, younger guys would be wise to learn from those who came before them and have overcome many of life's challenges.

RE: Disney Star Wars
There are exceptions of course. As long as one is willing to become better and makes legitimate effort towards that end then I would easily consider that person respectable.

The generalization of "the millennial" that I described is a general apathy towards constructs currently in existence (usually in America or other similarly "first-world" regions) but that apathy also extends to willingness to do something constructive to improve that since you've likely been taught one way or another that it's not worth fighting. It's not necessarily the fault of millennials that it's reached that point, it's been spiraling downward since the baby boomer era.

Baby boomers were the first generation to have "modern amenities" in abundance like electric appliances and particularly televisions, and the first generation born since the introduction of the social security to actually age into receiving its benefits. The monetary inflation that happened as baby boomers grew up likely became a major contributing factor in the reduction of the practicality of the idea that "harder working = more successful," and that almost certainly increased perpetuation of apathy against such. "Generation X" tried to respond with "rebellion" but then their "plight" was co-opted by and repurposed into pop media. "Generation Y" was seen as a copycat of Generation X and, not coincidentally, it was during this period when cookie-cutter media like Britney Spears and 98 Degrees started to be produced and consumed en masse.

Each generation has seen more people become strictly consumers and fewer become producers. Producers currently hold the power, and so far on a large scale that hasn't yet been millennials.

RE: Disney Star Wars
I agree but like what sarge said we're forced to swallow our opinions and learn from elders as if the past is more right then the present or future. I appear ignorant because I have no doubt the future will be better while people that criticize seem to be trying to recreate "the good old days".

This entire frame feels passive and real change only occurs when people are dominated just like we would like our subliminal results to dominate our lives.

Maybe it's similar to the David vs Goliath story. I just think it's foolish to think nothing but evolution will come from our future generations. How does thinking anything but that help us now?

RE: Disney Star Wars
To improve could be based on insecurity or drive. I don't respect a person who would choose indulgence over improvement but with all strategies there has to be a balance of factors for effectiveness. So the question of existence is resistance? As much as I value myself I don't think I could really be valueing life. Mainly because of the term live every moment like it's your last. If that is my belief is the issue with the person living or "watching"

While we're waiting for V3.1 to release, I thought I'd share this:





If you've seen Rogue One, liked it or didn't like, you should find this hilarious.

RE: Disney Star Wars
Well, thought I would talk about this since I've just seen some supposed leaked plot points for "The Las Jedi" movie. Obviously some of these might not be true or they might all be true. Only time will tell but I'm going to give my opinion on them honestly. I'm more likely to believe a couple of leaks these days because I'm starting to notice these days that for big Frachinses (Game of thrones for example, of which the leaks I have seen are turning out to be true) its getting harder and harder for companies to keep these under wraps. Anyway, From what I've seen so far:

- Rey is an incarnation of the first Force user: ugh, think this is just plain stupid and lazy honestly. If though I wouldn't have liked the whole "shes Luke's secret daughter" at least that would have added more drama, interest, and emotional conflicts. Just saying "oh shes op because shes an incarnation of the first force user" just seems like lazy writing to me.

- There will be appearances of Anakin and Yoda's force ghosts and it will be shown that these ghost can be killed: Also really stupid in my opinion.

- Snok will not be finished in this one. He has switched bodies before and is wealthy and well liked in the Galaxy. There will be a cliff hanger at the end of the Luke vs Snok fight: ugh, conflicted on this one though leaning toward this is kind of stupid. The switching bodies part has been done before which confirms they are just ripping off parts of the expanded universe which Disney "claimed" was not cannon. If anyone had read those books they would see that Disney essentially claimed the books weren't cannon anymore then in the movie just mixed in certain plot points from the books in with rehashed plot points from the original movies. Not very creative in my opinion. Many may not know but when Palpatine died in the Return of the Jedi in the books he actually transferred over to a clone body he had on stand by. So essentially if this is true they are once again just ripping off the books they claim that aren't cannon. As for the more detail on Snok, kind of doesn't sit well with me.Your going to have a villain who is well liked all around the galaxy which doesn't make sense to me. I mean palpatine was better in that he was wealthy and powerful but not well like which went better with the idea of a villain in my opinion. Not much to say on the cliffhanger but I swear if they kill off Luke Disney will just have burned the franchise.

- Lukes says that after the Sith are done with and balance is restored they will end the Jedi order: Honestly, this idea I find actually pretty interesting. Instead of continuing the order afterwards and eventually having someone fall to the dark side to start the cycle all over again. Luke would rather just end the whole cycle of both the Jedi and the Sith. I think this one is more than likely true given to some trailers I have seen.

- Luke says that She will become even more powerful than Yoda:... ummm no thanks. So we have her first be a reincarnation of the first force user then becoming even more powerful , with little training, than someone who lived well into his 900's.

- Luke has Rey fight a creature with hostile intent and very attuned with the force. Once she beats it it turns into the force ghost of Anakin: eh, honestly feels like they kind of just ripped off when Luke faced that apparition of Vader in the cave in the empire strikes back. At least that one had a little bit more significance in that you saw Lukes face underneath the helmet and you wondered why that happened. From this one who knows maybe there will be just enough difference so its not out right plagiarizing but I'm not having high hopes honestly.

As for the rest of the stuff it was not very interesting what I saw. It looks like this is just going to be a nostalgia fest/rip off the empire strikes back. Rey/Luke training (Yoda/Luke training), and Fin/Leia/Poe on the run from the first order (Leia/han/Chewie on the run from the empire). If this all turns out to be true I really have to wonder whats going on with Hollywood at this point. Its seems like all they can do is remakes/reboots of the previous franchises and just fill them with a bunch of nostalgia and call backs but nothing really original or creative. They wonder why a lot of these movies are starting to loose money.

RE: Disney Star Wars
The last Jedi is a movie about coming out of duality and going the path of the Dao which is the middle path. The Sith is the Left Hand Path of God while the Jedi are the Right hand. Balance is in taking the middle path.
