Filed under: capitalism, zizek, analysis, umbrella-academy, lit-theory

  • The Commission = Objective Violence

  • Number Five (+ Umbrella Academy except Vanya) = Liberal Communists, brutal humanitarians (+ variants)

  • Vanya = Subjective Violence

  • 'The Way Things are Meant To Be' (Correct Historical Course) = Current socio-economic order (Liberalism-Capitalism)
