Why I wasn't a fan of the Luther twist/why I think Luther should have survived
He wanted to unite the five kingdoms to fight against Azura and he thought that it needed to be under one king (and, tbf, he was right. That’s what Kenna did.) Luther knew more about Azura than the others - his wife and father were killed by her, as were his sons. The others didn’t know about Azura’s powers. Adriana wanted to stop Azura by uniting the kingdom in a democratic way. Which is great, but democracy can take time.
He wasn’t the one who terrorised Stormholt post-takeover. That was Marco. He immediately went to fight the Iron Kingdom.
He told Kenna that he had killed her mother because it was what needed to be done. (Which I guess was a lie because his actions in the last chapter make him seem more power-hungry than pragmatic.)
What reasons for going after Kenna did he have that actually made sense? She’s united the kingdoms - him killing her would have negative consequences for him, as her powerful allies would not let that stand. Azura’s dead.
Luther attacking Kenna just ties everything up neatly (and I don’t think it all should be all neat and tidy and finished) and it reduces him from an interesting character who did terrible things for more morally ambiguous reasons to a standard villain who made stupid decisions just for power.
He’s a more interesting character when he’s someone who is willing to do what (he thinks is) necessary, instead of someone who just wants power and I think it would be a more interesting ending if Kenna and him had to remain civil and maintain a political relationship even after what he did.
Using a Martin Luther King Jr qoute is rich how? What not modern and fashionable enough for you. Over the years the over all approach to race as whole was "Hey, maybe we should be a less shitty" and it was doing so well for so long. But recently sensationalizing black on white tentions has become a god damn gold mine the media. They are playing you and twisting the information to warp it into something it isn't. Discrimination illegal for a reason. People need to come together not devide further
Do you really need me to explain the concept of irony to you? Specifically, cherry-picking and blanding out a quote from one of the most famous civil rights leaders in order to disregard everything he fought for and that people are still fighting for today?
Here’s what Dr. King had to say about empty platitudes of togetherness and being “less shitty”:
“Whites, it must frankly be said, are not putting in a similar mass effort to reeducate themselves out of their racial ignorance. It is an aspect of their sense of superiority that the white people of America believe they have so little to learn… Loose and easy language about equality, resonant resolutions about brotherhood fall pleasantly on the ear, but for the Negro there is a credibility gap he cannot overlook. He remembers that with each modest advance the white population promptly raises the argument that the Negro has come far enough. Each step forward accents an ever-present tendency to backlash.”
