#this is such. a. good. line.#this is the shadow-side of democracy#that the multitude can be made to fear a nebulous ‘terror’ so deeply#that they’ll willingly and enthusiastically relinquish their freedoms to the man who told them they should be afraid#revenge of the sith is very much a post-9/11 film#in a paranoid and apocalyptic culture the story of a young man seduced by a dark & powerful ideology#and compelled to commit acts of terrorism in its name is unavoidably resonant#this line turns back upon an america which voted into law bill after bill restricting & infringing upon civil liberties#legislation greeted with relief and zeal and overwhelming support#whether or not it was intentional it’s amazing how angry & acute this line was#a state that believes itself good but has been pervaded by evil#[so that it’s no different from the dark virulent terror it declared enemy and swore to root out]#a politics of terror begets only terror#i don’t know how this made the film’s final cut in tact but i’m glad that it did (via elucipher)

I have a spiritual connection with like 5 of these dragons
