What some are amusingly calling a “storytelling innovation,” thinking people are instantly recognizing for the moronic social justice propaganda that it is. There’s no innovation here, the Soviets engaged in this worthless garbage for decades and were far better at it.
Like the Soviets, Rose Tico‘s lectures to the audience seem to focus on various evil aspects of rich capitalists.
This post will focus on Rose Tico’s take on slave labor.
Don’t you see? The rich people that hobnob in casinos keep slaves! So is this what we see when we vacation in Las Vegas or Atlantic City? Hardly.
In 2016, the Credit Suisse Research Institute published a map showing the global distribution of wealth.
Now, compare these two maps from independent sources. Pay particular note to how the poorest nations, also tend to simultaneously have the largest population of slaves. Likewise, the richest nations simultaneously tend to have the lowest population of slaves.
Now let’s compare these two maps, to a third from an independent source. Let’s compare them to the Heritage Foundation’s Economic Freedom Map.
Note again, how the areas with the most economic freedom (the economic environment most likely to produce more rich people) also simultaneously tend to have a smaller slave population. While the areas with the least amount of economic freedom, tend to have much larger slave populations.
What this means, is that it isn’t rich people hobnobbing in casinos like Donald Trump that hold slave labor. But rather, it’s rich people like Fidel Castro, Vladimir Putin, Mao Zedong, Nicolas Maduro, Kim Jong Un, Hillary Clinton, among others, who own slave labor.
So the moral lesson that the writers of The Last Jedi manufactured for Rose Tico to spew at the audience, has no basis in factual reality. The real moral of the story is, don’t pay any attention to leftist propagandists; they’re full of it.
In Part Deux, we’ll tackle the monumental stupidity of Rose Tico’s lecture on arms dealers.
