global star capital

This is your daily reminder that beloved fictional media of various stripes, from Star Wars to Hunger Games, glorify those who go against an oppressive establishment; it is hypocritical to love these stories and claim to support their broad messages while also opposing movements that seek to shatter autocratic social arrangements and the intersectional bigotries that go along with them; in other words, it's inconsistent to admire the Rebel Alliance while also looking down on anti-capitalist/anti-imperialist movements, Black Lives Matter, and other pushes to establish more democracy and freedom in social relations.
