Could the Fourth: Mehdi Hasan on the politics of “Andor”
What’s my sacrifice? I am condemned to make use of the instruments of my enemy to defeat them. I burn my decency for another person’s future. I burn my life to make a dawn that I do know I will by no means see. And the ego that began this battle won’t ever have a mirror or an viewers or the sunshine of gratitude. So what do I sacrifice? Every thing! You will stick with me, Lonni. I want all of the heroes I can get. — Luthen Rael, “Andor”
Mehdi Hasan does a unbelievable breakdown and evaluation of Disney+ Star Wars present about resisting fascism, Andor. Hasan additionally leads a panel in discussing what we’re studying from Andor and what the recognition of this sequence tells us about ourselves as we speak.
The primary season of Andor confirmed us the cruelty of the Empire, and celebrated the lives of those that resist it, no matter how futile their deaths could have been. Whereas we all know how issues work out for the titular character, I’m tremendous excited to see the place Luthen Rael finally ends up.
