"automation is bad because people will lose jobs" excuse me? you may want to consult your nearest 6 year old on this one
capitalism being bad
ugh capitalism really do be like okay do some shit you probably don't want to do for 8 hours a day, then be too exhausted to do things that actually interest you
every 5 days we'll even give you some time to recover, because you will be exhausted enough to need them
oh and btw we don't care if you're entirely nonfunctional outside of work (e.g. only being prescribed 8 hours worth of medication)
She invented the time freezer to get time to catch up on reading, TV shows, and sleep. At the press of a button, time froze outside a bubble centered on the machine.
But the more she used it, the harder she found making herself turn it on again.

Avatar (the cartoon, not the 3D Movie tech demo) and real world politics, minor spoilers for legend of korra
I just finished reading the shadow of Kyoshi and one thing I noticed is that all nations are the manifestation of different parts of fascism.
The earth kingdom is bureaucracy (and corruption.)
The fire kingdom is authoritarianism.
The water tribes are incredibly sexist.
The air nomads are religious fundamentalists.
All nations are.. well, filled with nationalism. (The air nomads aren’t as much as the rest but they still make up some pseudo elite that is distinct from everyone else)
If that’s the normal order that the avatar is supposed to uphold or rebuild, it makes sense that the antagonists in Legend of Korra are caricatures of different leftist ideas.
The world is inherently fascist.
