The Politics of Star Wars

Today is Star Wars Day! In honor of this exciting event from a galaxy far, far away, here are some links to various writings and speeches I have done on the politics of one of the world’s most popular science fiction franchises:

Rogue One and the Politics of Star Wars (my take on political themes in the best Star Wars movie since the original trilogy). This is probably my personal favorite among my Star Wars-related pieces. Among other things, it discusses why it’s important to think about what the Rebels are fighting for, as well as what they are against, and why why, they, like many of the American Founding Fathers, are “simultaneously freedom fighters and slave owners.”
