“How to have a message” on civilizational conflict

I don’t usually post links to random videos here, but this is one I really want to share with more people:

The initial premise of “Avatar is stupid and Princess Mononoke is great” is pretty much a no brainer and what could possibly be added to that conversation? But after an initial overview and comparison of the two movies, which I think is actually really funny and entertaining, I started to wonder how he’s going to draw that one out for another half hour. Which is where the movie starts to broaden out and take off into a very unexpected direction and turns into one of the most interesting discussion about conflicts of this kind I’ve seen in a very long time.

I don’t think I’ve come across any new videos of this caliber (except Jacob Geller, of course) in several years. This is really good. I very much recommend giving it a listen.
