Star Wars as Political Commentary?
I saw the new Star Wars when I was out of town. I was raised with the ewoks as a Star Wars fan from birth so it's kind of sad to see it come to an end.
While I watched, my liberal-Democrat mind thought it detected a political commentary on the state of democracy in the US today: We've got the Senate, the figure head of the Senate has increased powers because of a war that some don't feel was justified, etc.
My husband thinks I'm crazy but what do those of you who've seen it think?
