Ethics of the Clone Wars • Vacation Cast
I’m on vacation this week, and the internet is a lot worse than I had hoped up here, so I couldn’t produce a new episode. Instead, here is an episode that was released on Superhero Ethics about the ethics of The Clone Wars TV show, which also seemed deeply relevant to this podcast. Enjoy, and we’ll be back with new episodes soon!
The Clone Wars TV show takes the well-known stories of the fall of Anakin and the Jedi, gives them nuance and moral complexity, and explores questions relevant to our world. What happens to peacekeepers when they become generals? What is the moral value of clones, and how were they treated? And what happens when people fight a war without asking why?
Star Wars fans and former guests Paul Hoppe and Jonah Kellman join me to dive into these questions and more as we look at the ethical questions from The Clone Wars TV show.
Paul Christopher Hoppe, AKA ZenMadman, is a writer, teacher, and student of poker, chess, language, and life. Find out more here:
