    Babylon 5 - G'Kar learns secrets about the bombing of his world

    This is the kind of scene that makes me see the show Babylon 5 as a great peak of science fiction ..... it is the greatest show that shows the deeper issues of politics, power and information control (although the show had some incidences of false information regarding history). But at the end, this show had so much to point out and reveal about the human condition regarding politics, power, the power of propaganda and the power of false information.

    I'm trying to get into the show, but my word, the outdated cgi is really hard to watch. It's like watching an old computer game.

    Babylon 5 is easily one of my favorite sci-fi shows of all time. Good writing, decent effects and a minimum of SJW narratives.
    I also met some of the actors.

    Wie alt seit ihr? Ich gebe zu, ich war auch mal ein Kind/Jugendlicher, bevor ich zum Mann wurde und die durchschnittliche Naivität und Gutmütigkeit des Deutschen in mir durch scharfsinnigen Verstand und eiskaltes Kalkül ersetzt wurde. Gefühlsduselei kann ich nicht ausstehen. Sie benebeln der Wahrheit Wege zum Lichte/Sonnenschein.

    In Bezug auf Babylon 5. Ich kenne die Serie der 90er Jahre, habe sie als Jugendlicher nicht ohne Begeisterung gesehen. Sich für fremde (Hoch)Kulturen und exotische Lebensräume zu begeistern, den Zauber und die Magie der Fremdenliebe der Heimatliebe gar vorzuziehen. Aber ich wusste immer irgendwie im Unterbewusstsein das da was nicht zusammenpasste. So auch in der Serie Babylon 5. Was zuerst passiv-intuitive Abwehrhaltung und der Zweifel gegenüber bestimmten Themen waren.

    Wir sind alle eins mit dem Universum? Ja? Wir alle müssen füreinander sterben, uns aufopfern? Selten so einen christlich-sektiererischen Schwachsinn gehört! Wir sind alle gleich, ja? Kommunistische Kacke! We are all the same, yes? Communist crap!

    Rassenvermischung. Kulturvermischung. Trotz ihres sehr kleinen Prozentsatzes an der Gesamtbevölkerung auch in den Vereinigten Staaten durfte eine Jüdin im Kommandostab nicht fehlen. Aha. Quote.

    Eine Art Zukunftsvision war Babylon 5 nie für mich. Eher ein Spiegel der West-Gesellschaften in denen wir leben und die ich wegen ihrer Entscheidungsfindung durch Gefühlsduselei auch nicht leiden kann.


    How old are you? I admit, I was also a child / adolescent, before I became a man and the average naivety and good nature of the German in me was replaced by astute mind and ice cold calculus. I can not stand feeling shivers. They dull the truth ways to the light / sunshine.

    Regarding Babylon 5. I know the series of the 90s, I did not see it as a teenager without enthusiasm. To be enthusiastic about foreign (high) cultures and exotic habitats, to prefer the magic and the magic of the foreign love of the Heimatliebe. But I always somehow knew in the subconscious mind that something was wrong. So also in the series Babylon 5. What at first passive-intuitive defensive attitude and the doubt against certain topics were.

    We are all one with the universe? Yes? We all have to die for each other, sacrifice ourselves? Rarely heard such a Christian-sectarian nonsense!

    Miscegenation. Cultural mixing. Despite its very small percentage of the total population in the United States, a Jewish woman in the command post was not missing. Aha. Rate.

    Babylon 5 was never a kind of future vision for me. Rather, a mirror of the Western societies in which we live and I because of their decision-making by emotional dissipation also can not stand.
