This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

The FO didn't even get a setup to be evil.
Its evil because it guns down civilians, and its motivation is to find Luke for some reason. Thats about it. Then some guy by the end of the film says 'We are here to reverse the collapse of the empire'. The resistance is resisting them because the FO is evil.

That's my point. There's no reason for them to be evil. They just do it. There's no setup to be evil. They just are.
The Empire's evil is a consequence of their motivations. The First Order... *shrug*

I don't remember the guy saying "We are here to reverse the collapse of the empire." *Tired sigh* I suppose I should watch it again. Is that the dreary "Hitler yells at the crowd" scene?

Yo RM,  I don't know if you ever got to watch red dwarf, but a lot of people who did and saw general hucks realized he was just an evil Arnold Rimmer.
Fuck the fascist right and the fascist left.
