A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.
- Mark Twain
Today’s lecture will address this foolishness.
Come on, what a foolish question to ask!
It is obvious that Patriarchy is still running rampant everywhere, so let’s take a Heroic Stand against Perversion, Deceit, Distraction, and Foolishness.
Define the Four-Point Checklist
Before we can discuss this tragedy, let’s discuss the Hero.
A Hero is defined as “a person noted for feats of courage and nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed her life.”
What is courage?
Courage is defined as “the state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self-possession, confidence, and resolution; bravery.”
Now we ask, what is noble (nobility of purpose)?
Noble is defined as “having or showing qualities of high moral character, such as courage, generosity, or honor.”
This pushes us to ask, what is moral?
Moral is defined as conforming to standards of what is right or just in behavior; virtuous.”
In conclusion, our journey begins with a basic question.
Has Thanos shown that he is heroic, courageous, noble, possesses high moral character?
Point 1 - Heroic
Is Thanos Heroic?
Of course, the answer is HELL NO!
Let’s step back and consider the Heroic Journey.
When the Story World has an issue, is imbalanced, or has fallen victim to chaos, a HERO emerges to “reset” the situation back to “Normal.”
Look again at that statement.
The Hero “REACTS” to an issue and is sent on a journey to “fix” the situation.
In the Infinity War, Thanos is the “FORCE” causing the issue, bringing imbalance, and threatening the entire universe with PURE CHAOS.
In our reality, Thanos is NOT heroic.
Point 2 - Courage
Is Thanos courageous?
The quick answer is NO, but let’s go into this deeper.
Has Thanos faced danger?
No, he “IS” the danger.
Has Thanos faced fear?
No, he “IS” the one causing fear.
Has Thanos shown bravery?
No, a hero shows bravery in OPPOSITION to a situation.
Thanos is “CAUSING” the situation.
In our reality, Thanos is not courageous.
Point 3 - Is Thanos noble?
This is sad, why should we even have to ask this question?
I’ll ask you.
Is killing half of the sentient life in the universe noble?
And when we ask you why, you respond, “cause I feel like it.”
In our reality, Thanos is NOT noble, not even close!
Point 4 - High Moral Character
In what world is killing considered moral?
In what world is genocide considered moral?
If these two are bad, imagine this.
Genocide is about one group (national, racial, religious, or ethnic).
Now imagine this.
Thanos kills off half of ALL SENTIENT LIFE in the universe.
In our reality, Thanos DOES NOT POSSESS high moral character.
Let’s talk about the issue with Thanos and asking this asinine question.
In the Comic Book World, Thanos was in love with Mistress Death and she paid him no attention.
To prove his love, he decided that if he got the Infinity Gauntlet, he could kill half of the universe and she would be impressed by him.
After he does this act, she still “ignores” him and he is left to deal with this pain.
Let’s stop accepting this nonsense people!
Many opponents are given “passes” by justifying their actions.
They say that “since Thanos did this for LOVE, then he should be given a pass.”
What do we call someone that kills another human being?
What do we call someone that kills an entire race of people?
What do we call someone that kills half of all SENTIENT life in the universe?
Is Agent Smith the one?
Sorry to get off topic, but years ago, I saw a youtube video claiming that “Agent Smith” was the ONE and not Neo.
Let’s weigh in on the facts.
The computers have enslaved humanity and now humanity is fighting for its freedom.
The situation is simple - humanity needs to be delivered from prison!
As we know with the Heroic Journey, when a situation happens (humanity is enslaved), the journey calls forth a HERO to fix the issue.
If the issue is about saving humanity, then obviously, the hero in this situation would be a HUMAN BEING.
If a character is fighting on the side of the machines, doesn’t that make the character a bad guy?
How can we say Cypher is a bad guy, but that Agent Smith is The One?
Didn’t Cypher work with Agent Smith or “guilt by association” doesn’t work anymore?
Sorry for today’s rant, but we should always DISCOURAGE and DISMANTLE attempts to disrupt our focus on the Heroic Journey, the Moral Premise, and the Sacred Feminine.
I encourage you to take the Heroic Journey, remain fearless, stay focused, and confirm that you exist to bring LIGHT into the world.
As the saying goes, think GLOBAL and act LOCAL.
Good Luck Fellow Heroines and Heroes!
