Star Wars inspires all manner of “academic” nonsense. One only needs to search Google Scholar for Star Wars to see the truth of that. So it’s inevitable that publishers would put some of this trash in book form.
Coming soon to an Amazon listing near you, is the unauthorized Star Wars Multiverse by Carmelo Esterrich. Carmelo is an associate professor of Humanities and Cultural Studies in the Department of Humanities, History, and Social Sciences.at Columbia University.
Most of today’s idiot professors are universally uneducated. Why would I say that when Carmelo has a string of letters after his name? Because SJWs conflate the repackaged Soviet propaganda that they’re indoctrinated with at state institutions, with genuine education. And of course, the two are entirely different and separate. The certificates hanging on his wall, are merely official certifications of that state indoctrination. Remember, “sexuality” is one of the primary subjects that Yuri Bezmenov tells us can be used to replace practical and useful subjects in educational institutions, during the process of Cultural Subversion. And Columbia University is where György Lukács’ Cultural Terrorism turned Critical Theory took root in America.
And so they write worthless nonsense such as this book, the contents of which are described at Goodreads:
Star Wars Multiverse explores the many narrative platforms of the multiverse of Star Wars including through film, television, fiction, and comics. It argues that Star Wars is both familiar and other-worldly and persistently replicates and reflects our world. It is about the nature of ‘wars’ in Star Wars, its militariness; about the hierarchies of life in this universe (human, creatures, droids); about languages and accents (who speaks English–which accent of English–who does not speak English–WHY); about patriarchy, feminism and women in Star Wars; about the poli-masculinities of Star Wars (the Jedi, the Mandalorian, the Sith); about Empire and coloniality.
Star Wars Multiverse examines gender and race, privilege, and otherness while also precisely locating the franchise as an undeniably American cultural product.
What is poli-masculinities? Not much can be found, so the term must have been invented relatively recently. It’s apparently an answer to the concept of Hegemonic Masculinity. But I was able to find this:
Make of that gobbledygook what you will. Many people wonder, “why bother trying to figure it out when it’s garbage knowledge anyway?” Well, because this is the worthless nonsense that is being fed to young and naive students in schools and universities, and some of you may have kids attending those institutions. So you need to know what they’re being indoctrinated with. But also, to understand the mentality of the SJW so their idiocy can be better argued against.
Regardless, we also find this description of the book at Rutgers:
About This Book
Star Wars may have started out as a film about a Manichean battle between good and evil, but as countless filmmakers, novelists, animators, fan artists and even cosplayers have taken the opportunity to play in the fictional world George Lucas created, it has expanded into something far greater, resulting in a richly layered and diverse Star Wars multiverse.
Drawing from a full range of Star Wars media, including comics, children’s books, fan films, and television shows like Clone Wars and The Mandalorian, Carmelo Esterrich explores how these stories set in a galaxy far far away reflect issues that hit closer to home. He examines what they have to say about political oppression, authoritarianism, colonialism, discrimination, xenophobia, and perpetual war. Yet he also investigates subtler ways in which the personal is political within the multiverse, including its articulations of gender and sexuality, its cultural hierarchies of language use, and its complex relationships between humans, droids and myriad species. This book demonstrates that the Star Wars multiverse is not just a stage for thrilling interstellar battles, but also an exciting space for interpretation and discovery.
Here we can better demonstrate the uneducated nature of the modern professor. Today’s textbooks are littered with the phrases colonial imperialism and/or imperial colonialism. This concept of course comes primarily from antiquated Soviet propaganda, and is used to villainize the United States in class rooms.
Colonial imperialism and/or imperial colonialism, is the rhetorical counterpoint to the concept of the “Domino Theory” as it pertains to communist aggression around the world. For today’s idiot professor, all things everywhere must be perfectly equal. Equality! So if one regime is an aggressive oppressor, then so too must all other regimes be as well.
But the problem they have is that the concept of colonial imperialism and/or imperial colonialism doesn’t apply to the United State’s involvement around the world. The rhetoric is an attempt to squeeze a square peg into a round hole. Because it doesn’t take into account the concept of “self-governance” which communist degenerates abhor.
For instance, after World War II, the United States occupied Japan for a time, to ensure that its former imperial government could not be resurrected. Uneducated professors like to refer to that kind of nation building as colonial imperialism and/or imperial colonialism. But then the United States left Japan, which is now self governed. It can hardly be stated today that Japan is a colony of the United States, or part of an American empire. But that doesn’t stop idiot professors from pushing their moronic propaganda anyways. And unfortunately, too many young and naive students buy into this nonsense hook, line, and sinker.
So it comes as no surprise that Carmelo seeks to connect the Empire in Star Wars with imperial colonialism and/or colonial imperialism in his book. It’s a way to associate America with the evil Empire in Star Wars, even though, we fought a war in Viet Nam to stop the real imperialists and/or colonialists. That’s why the most gullible generation in American history, the Baby Boomers, protested the Viet Nam war as filthy hippies. They were the first American generation to be assaulted as children via public education, with the political indoctrination that György Lukács’ Cultural Terrorism brought to America through Columbia University. And as a result, they sided with the communists when they became adults.
This book represents more of that kind of political propaganda. And unfortunately, it will likely end up in classrooms across America.
Thanks to Dennis for the tip.
