Alright /co/ since you're always complaining about it, can you actually name a cartoon or comic made before the 2010's that you are 100% confident is apolitical?

Even if you can name someone "apolitical", it's incredibly easy to make a political interpretation of it. Intentionally or no, every piece of media is saying something, has some kind of belief baked into it due to being made by people.

agreed, I like to think all art is political in two ways, Passive and Active. Passive politics is when a piece of work just exist in society and active politics is when a piece of work is challenging society.

Shitty question, anybody who views a work of entertainment as "political" is deranged. Putting politics in your work just means you're failing at making a work of entertainment; you're drawing and writing your social media neuroses.

Like the "unsolicited opinions on israel" image. what the fuck reason would norse mythological characters have to care about politics? The writer just ceased to do her bad writing for that part and spewed out her neuroses from that time.

This.
Retards say "I don't want politics" but what they actually mean is "If you're going to put politics in your media, make sure they're politics that aren't retarded and completely lacking in subtlety."
Basically, people bitch about politics now because American writers/animators/directors/producers are all fucking retards nowadays who wouldn't know subtlety if it bent them over and fucked them in the ass.
The reason people rarely complain about politics in anime is because the politics are usually presented as more than just "those people who disagree with me in real life are meanie poopoo heads!"

>HURRR DURRRR TRUMP STEAKS HURRRR DURRRR ATLANTIC CITY CONSTRUCTION
So tired of you dipshits making the same gay arguments at every juncture, Trump is literally indistinguishable from any other highly successful real estate/business/media mogul in terms of accomplishments and professional etiquette, you've just been told by the media that he's a dum dum game show host with le orange hair for 20 years and you should hate him because he is le boisterous and le rude

If Trump hadn't been big time then New York City wouldn't have been as cool as it was in the 80s and 90s. UFC wouldn't have become a household name and every building in most northeast American cities would be collapsing from having the cheap chinese hardware that made them failing after 5 years. You wouldn't know that though because you probably rely on pic related for opinions.

Cartoons have been directly shilling for the US government since the 40s, arguably before since the Hayes Code. It was that or being accused of be a nazi/commie. The US government understood the power of propaganda and how cartoons can mold the minds of little kids so technically all cartoons are political.

m8 politics is about governing a population. Before the social media explosion of stupidity nobody thought that it was something that you should spend your days thinking and talking about. It is a complete waste of time.

Politics is an area where if you don't think it was better in the old days (meaning a decade ago), you're an idiot.

It's literally war generation being nostalgic toward the serials of the 30s/40s that featured a dumb cop being tricked by a clever rascal. The political content would be the disappointment of the American working class with the authorities and the mistrust after the crack of 29 but as funny animals because Hannah-Barbera didn't want troubles with the government. In fact, Yogi is just following Bugs Bunny's footsteps but with cheaper animation. They had an anti-authoritarian root but eventually got neutered. It's very common on American entertainment

Because as someone who's an actual centrist, most people who are centrists and aren't retards know that Trump is just another clown like every other politician, as such we don't really bother paying him any mind because it's all the same shit, only with the vocabulary of a 13 year old instead of a 19 year old.

Is it the gay lesbian tranny shit really that much of an issue? Even the orange man is just a symptom of a bigger issue in America, the complete collapse of the political system. I don't like fags or trannies but thinking objectively from the perspective of the CEOs currently running our lives as modern feudal lords, what difference make? Even the Biden winning the election won't change the economy because he's stealth Republican (see how the Republicans got the majority on the senate). Every year, voting get more and more useless because the banks decide for the people and we're supposed to accept it because le economy. What's the point of voting? And the orange man gave one trillion to the corporations so he isn't precisely a man of the people. Trannies are disgusting but, how do they affect the system? How they threaten the status quo?

Post-COIE Lex Luthor was modeled after Trump.

Actually it's neoliberal. It's just that burgers never had a left because the FBI killed union leaders and the CIA fill the universities with hallucinogens on the 60s. The left view trannies as burgeous degeneracy and often execute fags and dykes as part of a program of moral cleaness. Meanwhile neoliberal politics want every gender and non-conformist to embrace together for buying Coca-Cola

He did but he imposed neoliberalism to the entire globe, regardless the third world shitholes wanted it or not.

But he didn't like the homos and black people. That's how contradictory the GOP is.

I don't mind political allegories they just should not be too on-the-nose, too one-sided, too much of a strawman, etc. Like X-Men can be an allegory for racism or any other sort of prejudice, but it would be too preachy and unbelievable if the violence was only one-sided and the mutants were only ever victims and never terrorists or criminals. Compare that to Star vs the Forces of Evil where by the end of the series it seems like mewmans/humans can do no good and monsters can do no evil; even Toffee ended up with the same goal as Star even if he ended up targeting a few innocent people along the way. Globgor is totally innocent even though he hate people because it was justified somehow. And the mewmans/humans need to disarm themselves by destroying magic and submit totally to their enemies.

No, it's not.

Why do people think "every medium is inherently political" is a normal thing to think? Some things are made to tell a story. Some don't have allegories at all. Some have themes at most. Fucking hell a lot of art isn't political. Not everything has a deeper meaning unless you make one up.

Seriously read a book besides fucking Harry Potter for once. If you think the actual nationalists in your picture are some standard "MAGApede" you're one of the most hopeless /co/mblr retards out there.
Actual fascists and "proto-fascists" (a meaningless buzzword that describes nothing) don't piss and moan about how low black unemployment is, they don't say they want legal immigrants at CPAC, and they don't support neoliberal wars in places like Syria and Afghanistan. Nor do they call universal healthcare "socialism" and support trillion dollar bailouts for big corporations.

Most people who talk about "politics" in modern media barely know what they are talking about. The "politics bad" camp is complaining about there being too much of a very particular brand of politics in modern media not about political representation as such. While their "opponents" frame everything as political. The absurdity of this position is that if something has any kind of story or massage you can interpret that as "political" but even under these criteria, ask yourself if things like "Dora the explora" or "teletubies" have some deep underlying political massage?

No, they wouldn't. /co/ doesn't seethe haphazardly at anything gay. People tried to troll with Kipo's gay moment and failed. People don't shitpost SU because Pearl wants to fuck Rose, unlike shitposting Bubbline. Nobody really gave a shit about the two cops in Gravity Falls turning out to be gay, compared to Hirsch's, "Wendy was bi all along!" comments. I don't think anyone really cared about Twelve Forever having a gay girl lead.

/co/ is fine with gay as long as it's a well-written romance arc, even if it ends in tradgedy as is the case with Pearl. They hate pandering and they hate shitty romances, which is why Regular Show and Star Vs. pisses off so many people despite being a show mostly about straight people.

A-fucking-men. This is ultimately what fucked the Animaniacs reboot.

There isn't a SECRET AGREEMENT (the actual definition of a conspiracy) involved. It is all public. It is all open information. Nobody is talking about oppression except for you.

These are actual Jews from a JEWISH ETHNOSTATE reporting that Jews are the majority of American political donors. Do you think these people are neonazis peddling a conspiracy theory in their basement?

I can see where this is going. It is a "three pronged defense".
1) Claim everything is political.
2) Dismiss any political message that you agree on to be non-political ei: "basic decency", "it is just X existing".
3) Use Death of the Author to either associate a political message to story or to dismiss discoveries of the political message.

Maybe, but it does sometimes deal with societies' relations to ritual and belief. Like in "A Cold Death" when Spear ends up resolving the conflict with the mammoths' by honoring their funerary rites by giving them back the tusk, and in "Rage of the Ape-Men" where the ritual combat the apes constructed around the black goo leads to the biggest risk of loss Spear's faced since his family died. The theme seems to be how beings when they're in a larger social structure relate to the idea of death, which is often altered from the life-and-death decisions spear and fang make venturing on their own, that are almost always about survival.

If you want to figure out how, if in any way, a work is political, and what political statements it's making, here's an easy way to do it. First, look for any state structures represented within the work. Find the leaders or agents of that state structure represented within the work. That could be kings or princesses, politicians, bureaucrats, chiefs, police officers or soldiers, empresses or emperors, etc. How are they presented? Are they oppressive, inconvenient, helpful, inoffensive, incompetent? What is their relation to the protagonist? Whether implicitly or explicitly, the presentation of these figures or their role in the narrative will inform the political messaging of the work. There are other things to take into account, like religious structures and business relations which might indirectly imply something political, but honing in on the state will get right to the core of the issue.

Political INTERPRETATION isn’t something anyone cares about. That’s like saying “oh well Mario bros is really about a clash of monarchies”, just some jackass twisting things that aren’t visibly stated onscreen in order to fit their preferred narrative that can easily and will easily be ignored or rather never even come to mind of 99 percent of people

The issue people have when they complain about overt in your face politics is that 1; they’re always terribly done so they make the product worse, and 2, why the fuck do you think we care about the
Political leanings of a group of people who’s only job is to write pretend, and they can’t even do that very well? Avoiding being political is so dirt simple you have to make an actual effort for it to happen at all, but avoiding people interpreting your work as political when it’s not in the text is the same thing as avoiding people who can’t stop talking about Tarantino, there’s only a couple of people who care this much and they’re pretty easy to avoid if they’re not the dumbass writer who put it into a series that it never had before and wouldn’t be as popular for them to ruin if it had been there at the start.
