>>79028507 That was two universal reboots ago, though. I had an idea for a new volume of Brave and the Bold where he would return. The series would have an ongoing hook where a new Writer and Artist would be forced to write the series by Ambush Bug, and the series would end with the previous Writer coming back in an edgy reboot to kill off the new Writer.
No he doesn't. See his self-insert character in Nameless. He advocates for humanity to stop reproducing entirely--not to LIMIT reproduction, before some neckbeard says that, but to STOP reproducing entirely. I'm a Morrison fan and he's right, the earth would be far better off without us as an organism, but saying he's not radical as fuck is just ignorant.
>>79028020 That is true. It doesn't mean that we should stop experimenting on lab rats or start killing children or whatever, it's just talking about intrinsic right to life. A human doesn't have more intrinsic value or natural right to life than a rat.
>>79028577 Very well, daddy. From an atheistic perspective, life is one's only chance at experiencing sensation, and the Earth is the finite pearl of life on which we are adrift. Given the astronomical scope of space, life is precious by scarcity (Within the range of human perception).
And if it's all we got, then ruining it, salting the Earth, and causing misery spits upon a uniquely precious chance. Sowing kindness, growth, and prosperity means getting the most 'bang for your buck' out of life.
>>79028615 > the earth would be far better off without us as an organism But what kind of existence would that be huh? Earth is a live fast die young partier. It has electricity it has inside when before there was only outside. Sure it would have forests and shit and maybe even last a few eons longer but will it have ever truly lived?
>>79028712 Then, from the Judeo-Christian perspective, life is a gift from the Almighty. To sow misery is to defy the will of your loving creator and harm people who are your brothers, in blood or in spirit.
To harm animals and the environment is to defile his creation, and show ultimate ingratitude for the gift that is Earth.
>>79028809 Kreia was a crazy lady who wanted to destroy the energy field that connects all living things, consequences be damned, despite seeing that when you do that you end up with abominations like Nihilus and the Exile.
>>79028712 >life is precious by scarcity (Within the range of human perception) Well, not intrinsic in its value but the value we give to life. Because diamonds are perceived to be rare that are valued a lot for no other reason than it's perceived scarcity (real or not). What does have intrinsic value anyway? Is the ability to place value on things an intrinsic value of life? Woah fuckin' deep, man.
>>79028020 If you're talking about objective intrinsic value of life, then he's technically right, but only because the value for both would be 0. Life has the value that we give to it, so I don't think it's a great argument for not killing a bunch of rats to save a child (which is kind of what he's arguing.)
A peaceful one, free from the ravages of mankind. Earth isn't a live-fast-die-young party planet, humanity is a live-fast-die-young party species. We just happen to ignore the fact that we're burning down everyone else's house along the way.
Destroying the force was plan B. Kreia followed the Exile to try and learn how she could live without the force. When she realized that it was not some great insight, only surrender to an emotion, which Kreia found intolerable, she fled back to Malachor, to kill or be killed by her last student.
Yes, I'm referring to Nameless himself. Perhaps "self-insert" was a bridge too far in that it implies an exact 1:1 translation, but the character is chock full of the man's ideologies (expressed in other places), plus the extensive (exhausting) knowledge of the occult, plus the Scot background... it's why I found it so funny when Morrison described Nameless as an "everyman" character. The average human doesn't have encyclopedic knowledge of the occult, Grant.
>>79029733 Ya, I think I would argue that you are mistaken to view Nameless' views as being wholely Morrison's. Even if Nameless is a reflection of Morrison, he's clearly a cracked and damaged reflection.
Tbh senpai I need to find some annotations or something for Nameless. That last issue left me real fucking confused
