Dvij Barot Because Capitalism simply exists in Korra's universe and outside of Varrick being a nutjob the show doesn't try to say much about it, as such the topic doesn't come up. Admittedly it's one of the show's biggest flaws: Bryke clearly wants to push "Democracy and Capitalism as the best" but never once addresses those things, instead portraying everything else as terrible by comparison.

Communism, like most political philosophies, is morally neutral. Honestly, I would love for a series to take a critical look at Communism through it's actual ideological failings rather than simply repeating the word "Equality" over and over again and putting that next to what is otherwise fascist iconography. There's a lot to unpack regarding Communism, and you could get an entire series out of the simple reality that Communism's overwhelming belief that tyranny is an alien force and "the people" are inherently good once they have their freedom returned to them makes it extremely susceptible to systemic rot and domination by fascism, but nobody seems to want to do that. They'd rather point at the Soviet Union circa World War II and go "Look at that Communist Dictatorship!" when in reality Communist countries only get that way because the vast majority of Communists sincerely believe that once they throw off their oppressors and establish a society for the people, that new oppressors won't rise from the grave, and so they don't design a system that makes it harder for duplicitous fucks to consolidate power. But that would require an understanding of Communist philosophy that goes beyond dipshit Cold War propaganda and actually bothering to read any Communist literature. And most Americans are so terrified of being labeled as Communists that they stubbornly persist in their ignorance.

People need to learn that you're allowed to judge a sequel by it's predecessor. Especially if it's a direct sequel that uses the same characters, generational characters, and the same gags, tropes, and constant callbacks. You can't bank off references and then be shocked when people start comparing the two.

Ok, I am all for supporting the LGBT community and most of what they are desiring, however WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND THINKS THAT SUDDEN BISEXUAL IN A TV SHOW WHERE LOVE INTEREST HAVE BEEN WITHOUT ANYTHING REMOTELY CLOSE WAS OK!? Ok, let me rephrase; why is it that after all that happened throughout the previous seasons where they clearly portrayed all the "main characters" as "straight" that they decided to suddenly shoehorn in some bullshit twist of, "oh, these two 'rivals' in relationships that have failed suddenly and inexplicably love eachother"? (Let's also just forget that there haven't been any cases of anything even remotely suggesting these themes before the main characters just suddenly jumped into the frey of it because clearly setting up themes like that before hand is unimportant.) Well, if their was any chance I was going to see the rest of the show beyond season 1 before, this and everything else has definitely closed it off for me.

They didn't portray the main characters as straight. You just assumed that because they showed an interest in the opposite sex. That you assumed straight instead of bisexual is a reflection on you, not the show.

So no matter how is he reasonable, he already positioned himself in ignorance to the public on which he is going to throw his shi... opinion...

Well put together video. You state some convincing points, but I lose myself with some of the political quips. You are critical of authoritarianism but also liberal-democracy? You condemn anarchism and yet defend communism? You seem to have your political pendulum all over the place. In what other way could they have depicted Amon’s ideology other than through 20th century revolutionary communism? Do you not believe that it is 'true' communism?
Lily Orchard
Lily Orchard 2 жыл мурун
You're confusing "defending communism" with "Not immediately triggering a gut reflex the moment it's mentioned." Americans know Communism doesn't work, but they don't know why it doesn't work or why it continues to stick around. The Constitution remarks that "every man is created equal." Does that make America communist? Obviously not. They should be going more in-depth than just saying "equality" over and over and over again and expecting that to suffice. I know a lot of Americans have trouble with this because decades of propaganda have made them think anything that criticizes Capitalism is just Satan reincarnated, but Communism exists and continues to exist for a reason. Communism is a scattershot philosophy precisely because it arises from reactionary sentiment, and as such laser-focuses on a single issue to the detriment of all others. Examine why that happens instead of just having the "twist" be that it was all a sham for revenge. Actually examine the socio-political issues that keep making people think Communism is worth a 2nd/3rd/12th shot. Do something other than treat Amon and his "Equalists" (side note: Make a better name) like generic terrorists if the writers are so desperate to be about "big ideas." The show wants to talk about Communism, yet stubbornly refuses to actually talk about it and takes shortcuts to avoid doing so. It actually takes a great deal of effort to figure out why Communism doesn't work, and the writers' refusal to do that is just a lazy attempt to score "smarty points" from idiot teenagers and Americans who don't know better. America's understanding of Communism is like someone who's car breaks down and they just assume it's because it's tired of running anymore.

One thing: Raava and Vaatu concept are more of a eastern philosophy, than christianic religion. Don't get me wrong. I hated the plotline. I honestly hated the origin of Avatar, and these two spiritual kites. But the concept of God and Satan is, that God is basically all-powerfull, and Satan is just a little bitch whose power lies in oposition of God, which is nothingness. In other words: Satan is pretty much powerless. God was always portrayed as stronger being, who eventually will win, no matter what. Raava and Vaatu are on the same level when it comes to power. They are embodiment of positive, and negative energy. Light and dark. White and Black. Yin and Yang? That's actually eastern philosophy. People of the East also has their thoughts about two opposing powers, positive, and negtive, that are as powerfull, as humans let them be. The only difference between Raava and Vaatu, and Yin and Yang is, that nor Yin, nor Yang is portrayed as "evil". Just as the opposite. Rightly usen, both may become benefitial to humanity. But, yeah… F*ck that plotline. I actually liked first season of Korra (I also liked Amon). I hated the second one. After this, I stopped watching.

Given how rightfully hostile you are to anarchism, the soft peddling of communism as if it’s a perfectly valid philosophy rather than a nonsensical fantasy that relies on one completely ignoring human nature is kind of off putting. If anarchy is an immature and poorly constructed ideology (which it is), then so is communism.
Lily Orchard
Lily Orchard 2 жыл мурун
Anarchism and Communism have the same core flaw: The majority of it's advocates sincerely believe that if you remove the people in power, everything will be fine because "the people" have no flaws because "the establishment" is a completely alien concept that is not a product of the environment in which they were created in. As a result, they don't develop systems to prevent power-grabs or corruption because they believe it doesn't exist outside of "the elite." Where Anarchism creates a power-vacuum for fascism, Communism is extremely vulnerable to being twisted into fascism. Unlike Anarchism, however, Communism could be salvaged if it took off the rose-colored glasses and built systems designed to resist corruption caused by human vices. But no self-identifying "Communist" wants to do that, because sucking off the "working class" is more important. My issue with Korra's first season comes down to the fact that it's idea of Communism is some terrorist saying "Equality" a lot. It doesn't really dig into that cause and effect. Hell, Amon's entire operation is funded by a wealthy benefactor. The show doesn't acknowledge why Communism becomes so popular and so devoid of nuance (widening wealth gaps create a seething hatred of the rich) nor does it bother to acknowledge that fatal flaw. Doing that would have actually been interesting. I'd like to see more people talk about the actual weaknesses and ideological blind spots of Communism, but American producers just have some guy say "Equality" a lot and go home. You wanna talk about the failings of Communism? So do I. I'd like to see a cartoon actually do that.

The anarchism is a mixed bag. It starts and stops at "No Rules" and "Power Vacuum", which is a stripped down version of anarchism. However, because the majority of anarchist philosophy ignores the issue of power vacuums and the fact that human beings created hierarchies for a reason the end result is effectively the same regardless.

ALRIGHT IMMA TYPE LOTSA STUPID STUFF HERE AND YOU'RE GONNA READ ME. I have been a long time fan of ATLA. and I also love TLOK. I relate so much with both Azula and Korra. This video get suggested to me for weeks and I tried to avoid it as much as I could because the title contain the word 'GARBAGE' and my thoughts of TLOK was nowhere near shitty. Yes, I know that Korra never matched the success of ATLA. No, I never really thought of the reason. At first I thought it was because of the jokes in TLOK was not as good as the one in ATLA, and that the plot and writing was not as good too.. and that's it. And then I decided to watch this video. then IT OPENS MY EYES. YES WHAT YOU'RE STATING HERE IS SO TRUE. Now I understand why. At first I wanna give everyone an excuse that "you cant compare the two of them, they are different fundamentally" But now I have reach enlightment. Thank you for clearing my doubts. Now I can enjoy both with so much better understanding. I know TLOK sucks in some way, but I still love it. You know. Like that overcooked, gooey indomie noodle you made yourself, but you still clean the plate cuz you just like it.

What confused me about the show is that after ang the next avatar should have been an earth bender. So how is it a water bender. It states in several episodes in the original that the reincarnation cycle goes earth ,water,fire air. The first time I watched the sequel I was so confused . they totally ignored that part.

No they didn't, you're remembering. The cycle is repeated in every intro. "Water, Earth, Fire, Air" - ATLA "Earth, Fire, Air, Water" - TLOK The Avatars before Aang were Roku (fire) and Kyoshi (Earth) which meant the next was supposed to be a waterbender.

"Authoritarianism is bad but also democracy is bad but also anarchism is bad" I see, a true connoisseur of dirtbag centrism. Jokes aside, you obviously believe in the necessity of a state so my question is why don't you believe that the state should be represented by its people, i.e. liberal, constitution based democratic government? If you want to represent people in their government, as shown by your disdain for authoritarianism, but don't like elected governments, as shown by your disdain for the Republic City and in your comments, you run into a logical contradiction.
Lily Orchard
Lily Orchard 2 жыл мурун
It's not that I don't believe the state should be represented by the people. When a story wants to push the theme that democracy is great, but spends absolutely zero time talking about why that idea is correct and instead just points at everything else and goes "Look at all these bad things? I hate bad things the most, only democracy can stop bad things!" It's a dangerously fundamentalist view of Democracy that only furthers the increasing belief that if the government is represented by "the people", then everything is fine even if the people make bad decisions that damage their society. Being represented by the people is not the only important thing for a government to have, and it's not the highest priority, and it's not a perfect idea. The contradiction you perceive isn't actually there. I have a disdain for authoritarianism because I don't trust the average person with power, their first instinct will be to abuse it. I don't like elected governments because you're putting the choice of who's leading the country in the hands of those exact same people. But what I dislike even more are the people who have deluded themselves into thinking that elections are always good and never fail. It only takes one bad King for the Monarchy to be abolished, yet we tolerate dozens and dozens and dozens of bad Presidents/Prime Minsters without thinking about how we keep getting them. I don't want 100% democracy. A government that is truly represented by the people is a government filled with greedy, inept, socially maladjusted individuals. And I want a government that is overwhelmingly democratic, but with systems in place to stop the people from making horrifically bad decisions.

That's the usual American response to anything that isn't their version of Democracy: "Not enough Freedom." But Communism's actual biggest problem is it's inability to resist systemic corruption that leads to that "not enough freedom" in the first place. The lack of freedom is the symptom, not the disease. If Communism was able to better resist or counteract systemic corruption, the reduced freedom compared to Democracy would be irrelevant as, when push comes to shove, more people care about their security than whether or not they're technically free. Many of the lower class who overwhelmingly support Communism are already forced to go without their freedom in a Capitalist system anyway, so talks about freedom fall on deaf ears.

The actual problems with Communism (necessary bureaucracy creating an opening for power grabs, failure to properly account for inevitable human vices, ect) are rarely if ever talked about. The American understanding of Communism is little more than Fascism with state-sponsored propaganda stapled on top of it. Like how North Korea calls itself a "Democratic People's Republic", while Americans think it's Communist, but in reality neither of those are true and it is a Totalitarian Dictatorship telling two lies at once. Or how Hitler tried to rebrand Fascism as Socialism, or how Republicans call white supremacist bigotry "Family Values", because euphemisms will always fool the average schmuck.

Why is Amon not a pseudo-communist? You say the reasons are obvious but I can't figure them out. I am one of those witless idiots who hears 'equality of outcome' and thinks 'communism'. If Amon isn't a pseudo-communist, what is he?

He's a charlatan. He's got a wealthy capitalist as his main ally and supporter. Communism is more than context-less equality. It's primarily a wealth gap issue, the wealthy aristocrats vs the downtrodden working class. Two of the main characters are benders who are poor to the point of near homelessness, and Future Industries is the Equalists' main benefactor. If the writers are actually trying to talk about communism, they have fucked up every single thing they could possibly fuck up in the process of doing that. Equality is something he says. What he's doing is ethnic cleansing. What he says has no bearing because he's a LIAR.

I thought I would hate this but OMFG this was creative, smart and hilarious. I enjoyed Legend of Korra, except for the butchering of character development and relationships. I liked what the writers attempted to do without an imperialist conquest as a main plot point and focus on a post-war story setting.

A very well constructed movie and essay on how TLoK was a massive let down. More importantly, how it also had so much potential that was squandered. I remember watching the first season, and getting turned off by it, then coming back some few months later, watched till the second half of season two then just dropped it entirely. Did not like what they tried doing with that.

I just want to say - THAT IS THE BEST ARGUMENTATIVE VIDEO I HAVE EVER WATCHED! I grew up with "Avatar the Last Airbender" and I think it is the best animated series ever made. The characters, the silliness, all the great Sokka moments and everything about Aang and his friends made my life complete. It also taught me a lot (especially English). I was really exited when I learned about it being continued with an avatar, born in the water nation (I adore water). And then... I watched it and was left disappointed. Lily Peet, Thank you so much for this video. One of the best ways to spend an hour of my life!

Technically, in literature, it is commonly agreed that the best villains are the ones who don't think they are the villains.
Lily Orchard
Lily Orchard 3 жыл мурун
Technically. In practice, those villains are very difficult to write and demand more of a storyteller than any other kind of character. Which means that they fail more often than they don't. This is especially true considering that most stories about about their heroes, not their villains, and the villain is a means to an end. The best villains are the ones who don't think they are villains. And so are the worst villains, because every hack sees that common agreement and just grabs hold of it without thinking about it,

Uh, libertarians are not anarchists, we're minarchists. Basically, the only functions government should serve are protecting the country from threats, maintaining the infrastructure, and securing our civil, political, and human rights. Basically, that big government is not the solution, it's the problem, and that the whole establishment of government needs to be kept on a short leash. Other than that, very valid points.
Lily Orchard

The problem with that idea is that private corporations ALSO need to be kept on a short leash otherwise they will be just as destructive and oppressive as a big government, but Libertarians seem more than content to remove the systems designed to stop them from doing those things. Oppression comes from more places than just the government, and civil, political and human rights won't exist without a government to enforce them. Systemic issues are one of the threats the government needs to protect a country from.

1:05:39 I didn't notice until you pointed it out, but Korra get's brutalized the most on the show.... Like, can we talk about how messed up this is -- and what it means? Isn't it concerning how the writers (two white guys) are writing a woman of color (who is physically strong) into these situations, where she's being victimized? Typing that out, it does sound like a fetish like they ARE getting off on it. That's scary, considering people praise Legend of Korra for representation -- but how could it be a good thing IF the writers were victimizing her on purpose? I'm saying "could" because I don't know the writers well, but it worries me if that's how they actually see things. To me, I don't think they'd show a guy the way they showed Korra, and if I'm wrong about that, then please, I'd seriously like to talk about this. :[

Praises of representation say nothing about a work's quality. Not saying representation is unimportant, but representation is praised for it's mere existence. Considering the horrible implications that LoK's actual content has and working through what it actually says about the representation takes a level of effort that most people aren't willing to put in, so they find neutral statements of fact and act like that's a praise. You can see similar versions of this in the praises of "Beginnings" and how it focuses so much on the lore. It does those things badly, but the mere fact of it being lore-heavy equates to a praise from the critically lazy. See also: "Korra is a show about big ideas" is another praise people give, despite it mangling those "big ideas" at every possible opportunity. This is a rampant problem among most discourse surrounding animated shows: People being lazy with their critiques and picking out neutral traits and deciding (based on nothing) that they are positives regardless of execution, because doing that is easier that doing the actual work to critique something, and very few people will call you on it because that would require that they are a better critic than you and also has a better work ethic than you. It's the priority of Intent over Execution, when good criticism prioritizes Execution over Intent.

Ethan parker If anarchism has been a philosophy for centuries, then anarchists should have come up with replacements for prisons and police by now. I think Lily Peet summed it up pretty well.
Lily Orchard
Lily Orchard 3 жыл мурун
Alright fine, I'll bite. What makes anarchism so difficult to take seriously is that there are about 50 different philosophies that amount to little more than taking an already existing philosophy, removing the leading figure, and then calling it "Anarcho-X" failing to realize that the leading figure existed for a reason, and things won't just get better after they're gone. Or worse, passionate supporters of Direct Democracy who fail to realize that Direct Democracy is only viable for extremely small population sizes like a village, and fell out of use for larger nations for a reason: it is extremely inefficient. The philosophy is all theory, and it suffers from the same critical flaw most communist philosophies suffer from: The unwillingness to account for basic human fallacies. In the case of anarchism, it's unwilling to account for laziness. For example: Representative Democracy exists primarily because most people don't want the headache of reading every bill introduced and it's easier to elect someone else to do it while you deal with your personal shit. You take that away, people will just find a way to put it back. This is what I mean by power vacuum: We invented things like prison and the police for a reason, and replacing them is virtually impossible. The focus should be on making better use of them rather than replacing them. Anarchists don't like that because it means having to deal with the fact that most people just don't give a fuck, and given the choice between freedom and convenience, most people will pick the latter every single time. And because anarchist philosophy is more concerned with removing things that could potentially create oppression rather than being effective as infrastructure, it is setting itself up for failure. It is a reactionary philosophy, built from an overreaction to perceived civil rights violation with a "burn it all down" mentality, when fixing the existing system is overall more practical in the long-term. Saying that Anarchism is flawed would be an understatement. Most anarchist philosophies aren't even anarchist, they're just paint slathered over Democracy, Socialism, Communism, and Libertarianism with little changed other than the fact that the government is called something different. The sole exception to this is Anarcho-Capitalism which is just a fancy word for "Corporate Government." I call Anarchism the worst philosophy because anarchists deal entirely in the theoretical, and I deal in the practical. And in the practical sense Anarchism is short-term freedom (in the most nebulous, vague, useless sense) for long-term suffering.
Athena Parker
Athena Parker 3 жыл мурун
Given that anarchist theory on potential replacements for current institutions like prisons and the police is admittedly lacking, I can understand that sentiment. Still, we're trying our best, and anarchism has been developing as a political theory for centuries. As admittedly flawed as it sometimes can be, that's not a good reason to dismiss it out of hand like you seem to do in the video, let alone call it the "worst political ideology imaginable" as you do at 14:00. Anarchist groups like Food Not Bombs and many others are doing lots of good.

There is no way you can convince me that the ember island players episode was NOT filler. No matter what clever underlying message was there it was essentially a recap. So yes, we could have taken that episode out and nobody would know the difference. Hence filler.
Lily Orchard
Lily Orchard 3 жыл мурун
You can also do that with about two thirds of the episodes. Filler is generally not found in an episodic series because by design there's little to actually fill, and the number of episodes that actually contribute to the thin veneer of a linear story are extremely small. The closest thing to a "Filler" episode is the one that is literally six shorts. Of course, "Filler" is a neutral statement of fact, generally reserved for serialized shows. If you're trying to use filler as a criticism, you need to go back to 5th Grade English. But it helps to overall understand the term so you stop using it incorrectly.

Okay, I enjoy most of this because it does highlight the failures of the show extremely well, but cut the two spirits are not just "God" and "Satan". Just because most of the other problems are boiled down to too much westernization, doesn't mean that every problem boils down to that. Vaatu and Raava are a representation of yin and yang and are a painful one at that. Both of them being diametric opposites, both of them apparently having a bit of each other in themselves, both essentially being on an even playing field in terms of strength, etc. The only part that comes close to your criticism, is the fact that one represents good and the other represents evil, which can just be attributed to an over simplification of the yin and yang concept, but not God vs Devil.
Lily Orchard
Lily Orchard 3 жыл мурун
They portrayed "Yin and Yang" like Jehova and Lucifer, therefore they ARE Jehova and Lucifer. That's how mythology works: Entirely on presentation. If you portray Yin and Yang as objectively good and evil, then you did not portray Yin and Yang at all. And they already did this better in The Last Airbender with the Ocean and Moon spirits anyway. Intent ends where execution begins. What they intended was irrelevant because what they did was completely different. They intended Yin and Yang. They made Jehova and Lucifer. Therefore Ravaa and Vaatu are Jehova and Lucifer. Just like how it doesn't matter if the show wants to be anti-extremism, the actual mechanics of the story make it explicitly pro-extremism.

Criticizing an anime because it shows "remember this" stuff? Dude did you even watch anime before? That's like the anime standard. There are whole episodes about the past episodes in a classical anime. Because people watch this stuff on TV, they don't rip it from the torrent like you and watch the whole thing in one sit. You criticize it because it doesn't feel like The Last Airbender? Hello? This is a different show? everything sucked about the Last Airbender they improved it in Legend of Korra.

*and you couldn't even summarize it* Your easily distracted brain that requires a TL;DR is not my problem. *otherwise you could have managed to explain it in 15 mins max* "Hi, I'm ffraffa and I don't know how longform criticism works." Mate, there are 500 page books analyzing single films. A thorough autopsy on something can never be that short and people who tell you that are just making bad scripts. *Criticizing an anime because it shows "remember this" stuff? Dude did you even watch anime before?* The Legend of Korra is not an anime. And just because anime has their quality standards in the toilet does not mean their terrible ideas suddenly stop being terrible. Get some real standards instead of demanding everyone else sink down to your level. *You criticize it because it doesn't feel like The Last Airbender?* I criticize it because it's trying way too hard to be The Last Airbender, but not in the ways that actually made The Last Airbender good. Instead of yanks iconography and plot threads from the old show while reanimating the corpses of old characters to dress them up in makeup and pretend they're new. I hammer this point about seven times, clean the shit out of your ears. Maybe the next time you want to cry about longform criticism, you should try actually paying attention to it so you don't make yourself look like a complete moron.

If you have to imagine that I'm "so offended" when I rebuke your terrible attempt at analysis, you might want to just get opinions that actually hold up under scrutiny. Relatable is not as important as Sympathetic. Anybody can relate to romance regardless of the gender makeup. And the only reason you can't is because of your poorly veiled homophobia.

On the note of Legend of Korra's animation, is it true that traditional animation is dead, because the animation tries to be extremely detailed and pretty, and not FLUID? I know it's not really the topic of your video, but I was interested in your talk about the animation. (I just want western 2D animation back, like everyone else). However, I did kind of wished a little bit elaboration on your snippets of the animation. Just a suggestion. Anyway, great video!
Lily Orchard
Lily Orchard 3 жыл мурун
I talk about writing over animation because a show's success is entirely on the backs of the writers. Back or choppy animation can easily be overlooked by most people. The Last Airbender was notorious for it's animation shortcuts outside of the last few fights. The big problem 2D animation has in 2018 is that all the people who are begging for it's return care ONLY about the animation on a raw, technical scale. Fluidity, high framerates, shading, all that technical shit that doesn't matter. Art direction is ignored (unless they want to bitch about Frozen some more), aesthetics are ignored, all the actual meat of the animation is ignored because all they're focusing on is raw technical output. Most importantly, the writing is ignored and in many cases often scoffed at. And that's why attempts to revive 2D animation continue to fail because they think the animation itself is the most important thing when reality it's the least of your concerns. Writing a good movie that is received well is the part that needs to be focused on, and nobody bothers to do it. They're so obsessed with frames and shading that they ignore the very thing that killed 2D animation in the first place: Too many terrible movies with shit writers. That's why my criticism (not just here, but in Glass of Water as well) focuses entirely on the writing and not the animation.
