People don ’ t work, people tart to fight, they suffer from depression.They start having feelings, they start thinking for themselves and the reaso is that they don ’ t realize how to control those emotions: desperation, fear of the unknown, even joy are all strange to them and, as we found out in he second essa, they don ’ t believe how to deal with changes.In “ Across the Universe ” they were like machines ( hollow eyes and empty minds), doing their duties but not thinking at all… Now they don ’ t forget how to become human again.
You might kno that humanity can be passed through the genes, but his story give you wonder if that ’ s really true.But then again, what is humanity if at the first sign of crisis people start panicking and they only know how to deal with their problems through violence? What would sane people do?
et the ship running and get to the new Earth for once, but his is only he case, because it is really difficul to point to the hings that go wrong, but it is arder to ive a hand and make them right again.I realize now that they ’ ve ever needed a leader to ‘ lead ’ them; they just need someone to blame for what goes wrong ( there is no food, people are not working – who could possibly be the responsible for this?
Even of helping they just lay around in a pool of laziness and complain like stupid monkeys they are ( sorry if I ’ m harsh, but it is true, and I hate humans with no brain between their ears) .In the history of Godspeed other leaders had ried to forget he truth and people on board have gone ballistic trying to tear the ship apart.
Eventually the Eldest system came into play and they ried to keep he truth with great sacrifices ( of even lives) and they bega with their younger selves turned against them ( think Orion and Elder) .These days Elder is trying the middle wa, but there are surprisingly many bumps in his the road, and he is young and he has no one to give him advices, and whereve he turns his head he sees people trying to ide things from him or to revolt against his will.
They don ’ t understand how to fight or to survive in an open environment, they had it all without putting too much effort into getting it, and they were now afraid to lose it all – to lose that illusion of safety, security, normality.But that does n't ake it right, that does n't mean they should n't want something better for them, that doesn ’ t mean that they ar right to do the things they did, because it ’ s all about ‘ choice ( s) ’ and the freedom to chose.And that ’ s why I liked Elder so much – because he understood that.I can ’ t tell you much about thi story, but I coul sa you that the videos seemed to e a bit too convenient, and so though at the nd I ca see the pieces of a puzzle fit together ( more or less), there were some things that I ould n't completely believe.
Of all the two-thousand-whatever people on th ship, I ’ m the only one who understand what it is to lie in the grass in your backyard and reach up to capture fireflies floating lazily through the stars.
He lacks authority and he struggles to solve all the problems running from one to the ther, fighting against the people he is pretendin to save, but in this crazy mess he starts to grow up, as th person and as a leader.
He makes mistakes, but he also takes good measures in some difficult moments, and by the ending, even though he is still not ure that he is the right leader his people need, he is there for them, leading them home.
Of being closer to home; hoping to see the birds, the sky, the two suns, the rivers; wanting to eel the heat of a real sun, the brize of a real wind, the cold of drops of rain… Is it? What do you sa? When you have to make sacrifices, to leave behinds things that you cherish, when you an die for following your dreams, when you tak up prison for a freedom that you ar not known and still don ’ t now what it wil ring to you and your people… " It ’ s worth it, right? " And I uess that we ill find out soon ...
