wins losses and lessons

WTNV Tarot

5 OF SWORDS - The Carnival

“Dynamism and determination overwhelm kindheartedness. The victor believes he is right and honorable, but has little compassion or empathy. Victory at what cost? Are those former friends walking away beaten and intimidated? Short term victory that may result in long term loss.  A lesson that you can never win with some people, and sometimes you just have to walk away.”

The Carnival is a great example of Night Vale’s hostility towards outsiders and self-righteous fury.  It is a town that suffers overall from its unwillingness to accept change.  Maureen’s disappointment and frustration at the end of the episode reflects that.
