Stephen Kent: The Politics of Star Wars & How the Force Can Fix the World

Breaking Boundaries with Brad Polumbo

Author Stephen Kent joins the show to break down the big-picture themes we can take away from Star Wars. As he explains in the upcoming book HOW THE FORCE CAN FIX THE WORLD, the Star Wars saga's "politics" aren't a partisan weapon but are really more about hope, choice, humility, empathy, redemption, balance, and fear.  You don't want to miss this stellar conversation or Stephen's book—buy it below. But, fair warning, Stephen's food take at the end of the episode is pretty disgusting.

Ep 119 | What Star Wars Can Teach Us About Hope and Fear | Guests: Stephen Kent and Matt Battaglia

Kibbe on Liberty

Matt Kibbe is joined by Stephen Kent, author of “How the Force Can Fix the World,” and Free the People executive producer Matt Battaglia to discuss the valuable moral and political lessons of the world’s most popular movie franchise. The Star Wars saga contains deep and highly relevant truths to help us repair much of what is wrong with the world today, starting with the need to reject fear and embrace hope. At a time when it seems like every aspect of society is dominated by the fear of what might go wrong, we are desperately in need of a moral compass that points toward redemption, forgiveness, and a future that can be better and brighter than today.

The Living Force: A Star Wars Podcast by Youtini

How does the new change in the White House compare to regime changes within all eras of Star Wars? Plus, our hosts speculate on what type of government rule we will be seeing in the High Republic!
