Episode 3: “Kylo Ren was a School Shooter” - A Leftist Analysis of Star Wars, Ep. VIII: The Last Jedi

On today's show, Bree and Pearson take you to a galaxy far, far away for a leftist analysis of the most controversial Star Wars film to dateEp. VIII: The Last Jedi. But, before digging into the day's discussion, our hosts explore some current events:

- The Occupy ICE movement continues to grow

- The rest of the J20 Defendants had their charges dropped

- All prisoners are political prisoners

- A heat-wave has lead to global high temperatures

- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wins, the Right loses its collective shit

After discussing legitimate criticisms of the film, Bree and Pearson spend the majority of the episode exploring The Last Jedi by studying some of the movie's overarching themes: militarism, fascism, feminism, animal liberation, materialism vs. idealism, class, anti-statism, the "great man of history" myth, egoism, and why we fight the empire.

Pour yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy!

May the Force be with you, comrades.
