The misappropriation of the word Slave by the AoT fandom

2022.01.21 21:11 Canobu1 The misappropriation of the word Slave by the AoT fandom

Before proceeding further, I would first like to elaborate on the definition of the word slave. I believe it to be of extreme import that we must first firmly establish basic principles and only then reason further.

  1. (especially in the past) a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them.
  2. a person who works very hard without proper remuneration or appreciation.
  3. a person who is excessively dependent upon or controlled by something.
  4. a device, or part of one, directly controlled by another.
Among these four definitions of the word Slave, the third definition seems to be the most appropriate for further discussion in this particular context, and henceforth this is the definition upon the basis of which I shall reason.
I have seen a particular, persistent and perennial tendency of the AoT fan, especially here on reddit, using the word Slave to describe a character. There is also an extremely jarring and worrying trend of using the word Slave as an insult, which, aside from being disgusting, ignorant and tone deaf, happens to be uniquely ubiquitous here on the Reddit part of the fandom. Delving into why this is so is not my intention currently, what I want discuss is why I find the use of the word Slave as a character descriptor, especially for Mikasa, to be particularly erroneous.
As mentioned before, nonetheless, reiterating; the definition of Slave we shall be working with is;
a person who is excessively dependent upon or controlled by something.
The advent of the use of Slave as a descriptor, came, perhaps most strongly, from the misunderstanding behind the dialog between Levi and Kenny, in which Kenny says, "Everyone was a slave to something.". Meaning, in this context, that everyone is excessively dependent upon or controlled by some perspective of their life. Be it money, love, fame, or even their children. This is a very dismal and gloomy conclusion, made by someone when on the verge of death, and who had most of their life consumed in pursuit of a singular desire.
Aside from being dismal, and gloomy, I believe this statement to be ridiculous and patently false. My personal viewpoints aside, the validity of this statement was repudiated within the story itself. Let us, for a moment, take the example of Erwin Smith, whom a lot of people considered to be a slave to his desire of finding the truth. Yet, at the most crucial moment of his life, when he happened to be within a hand's reach of his central ambition, he makes the choice of giving up on his dreams, and giving the Survey Corps a small chance at victory.
Another salient example happens to be one of the protagonists of our story; Mikasa. Despite Eren being the love of her life, the only part of her family who survived, the person who saved her life, and gave special meaning and joy to it, she was never a slave to Eren. Not only did she often deny, and disagree with Eren, but also killed him after he went on a sanguinary path leading to the deaths and destruction of innocents. She killed him despite loving him.
This has been a common motif in AoT; Characters abandoning their selfish desires for something greater. Erwin does it, Eren does it, and Mikasa does it. This is strikingly contradictory to the premise presented by Kenny. People are not slaves to things. In our entire history, the struggle for freedom and liberty has been among the defining characteristics of humanity. Also, a person cannot be a slave to the desire for freedom. That would be an inherently oxymoronic premise.
Further, a significant amount of critique for Mikasa centers around her being controlled by her Ackermann instincts, and being obsessed with Eren, which makes her a slave (to her instincts) or to Eren, and by extension, a character with no inherent drive. Inevitably, such critique is concomitant with calumny, and often holds zero value.
Nevertheless, assuming, arguendo, that some part of Mikasa's nature is indeed affected by Ackermann instincts, that still would not make her a slave to those instincts. Each human is, to some extent, genetically hardwired, or predisposed to certain instinctual actions. Does that mean each and every one of us is a slave to our instincts? I would say No, we are not, at least not in any meaningful manner.
Furthermore, It has been demonstrated time and time again within the story itself that Mikasa's feelings are her own, and wholly unaffected by her genetic makeup.
This mostly wraps up my thoughts on why I find the use of the word slave as a descriptor erroneous in regards Mikasa, and other significantAoT characters.
A small parting note; Some time ago, while reading Anna Karenina, in one of the chapters from the perspective of Count Alexei Alexandrovich Karenin, I came across the quote, "Quos vult perdere dementat", which is a contraction of the more common, "Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat", which translates literally, from Latin, as "Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first deprives of reason.", and what a beautiful maxim it is. Wonderfully applicable to such a large part of our fandom here.

2022.01.21 21:11 Legitimate-Ad-3344 Got a quote for a furnace and heat pump… is this realistic?

In Quebec, Canada.
Long story short, my electricty rate is through the roof. Posted my issue on another sub and many people suggest I look into my heating. I got a quote for a heat pump and forced air furnace.
First quote was CAD14k for daikin fit 2.5tons and 30k btu heat pump.
Second quote was for CAS18k daikin skyair 30k and a heatpump condensor.
It sounds insanely expensive but I can’t keep up my current electricty bill.

2022.01.21 21:10 turburlar Is there any downside to running Ubuntu (gnome) 21.10 or later with xorg instead of Wayland.

My gaming performance is way better when using xorg. But I am concerned that maybe some components or apps or something might only be tested using wayland. All I ever wanted from Linux is a reliable desktop / GUI experience, and that is what is most important to me....I don't want to maybe add more obscure bugs because I am using xorg.

2022.01.21 21:10 StrenghtandStrategy Infamous directors

Can you name any directors that was considered controversial? Just complete assholes who didn't give a shit about the well being of the staff working on set. This topic came to mind when I read about an accident that occured in 2016 when an actress were facially disfigured when glass shattered right in front of her. The director (Pascal Laugier) were to blame for encouraging her to smash the glass with her fists, insisting it would be safe.

2022.01.21 21:10 Life_vsDeath Library Page/Assistant/Technician Interview Questions?

Hello! I am a college student who is studying the Library and Information Technician program in Ontario, Canada. I am currently in the 4th semester right now and I will be looking for a job after graduation. Now, I have to prepare my resume, cover letter and interview skills to get a job. I need some advice about interview questions from a Canadian library technician who has recently graduated from the program.
My questions are:

  1. What major interview questions have you got during the interview with the recruiter?
  2. Which questions should I have to prepare for the interview? (Right now, I don't have any library experience, so I want to focus on library assistant interview questions. I would be grateful if anyone could give me library technician interview questions for future reference.)
  3. (This one is a little different) If I received the interview acceptance email from a recruiter, how should I reply to them? Any recommended advice for this?
If I have any other questions, I will post them later. I want to say thank you so much to anyone who can give me helpful advice. 🤗
