Welcome to the Archangel Network

This is where I complain and celebrate and post random things that no one cares about.

A friend linked me these because he thought they’d be relevant to me, he was extremely correct.  If these pieces of advice aren’t relevant to you, improve yourself until they are.

I can’t stop contemplating the implications of considering R2D2 and C3PO slaves rather than robots…

Does it make Star Wars even better….or completely fucked?

I’m gonna go with better.

The guy is this article (https://tv.yahoo.com/news/david-fincher-calls-r2-d2-203000250.html) said: “If the droids aren’t alive, then I’m confused by their behavior in the films, and if they are alive, then how can everyone treat them like garbage?”
[Alive, in this case, meaning essentially human enough to be called slaves instead of appliances]

So, fundamentally I want to ask this person if they know how slavery happened. You know, in the history of this planet. Cause…slaves were treated like garbage. So, to be confused by people treating them like shit is to ignore the fact that slaves are always treated like shit. Cause slavery is terrible.

But anyway, not the point. Point is, does it matter whether or not we call them slaves? Yes, I think it matters. But I have no idea what those implications are if you start calling them slaves. And every time I think “but they’re just robots”, then I have to remember all the times they showed that they were capable of independent thought and free will. They showed curiosity, initiative, emotion…and if that’s not being alive, then fuck if I know what is.

Now, one could probably make the argument that they’re only truly slaves for part of A New Hope. When they’re captured and sold to Luke. By Empire Strikes Back, they’re hanging around to help. R2D2 volunteers to go with Luke and help Luke. So…idk…

There are a lot of implications…but I felt the need to scratch the surface a bit cause thoughts in my brain are lots. (that was a wonderful sentence.)

Edit: One more thought…Most of the “mistreatment” of them comes in the form of “why the fuck is this equipment malfunctioning”, right? So maybe it isn’t an issue of slavery at all, but more of a way-ahead-of-its-time look at what happens when technology become too human. Are we capable of treating it as such. and so on… Idk.
