One thought on “Episode 32: Fairies with Morgan Daimler

  1. Peter Pan – not a man child per-se. Peter pan was an elf lord. He stole children and returned them decades later. He had no concept of time, no moral compass as humans know it, he made the children he took forget their past lives in deference to the games he chose to play. In fact, he had no imagination of his own. He stole the children because he needed someone to come up with games for him. He could not create them himself.

    Tinkerbell, while problematic, was literally enslaved to Peter pan. She had no self will. She was created to serve his whim.

    Yes, this is a very dark story, indeed, as many fairy tales are. Remember, the fey are not human, and to put a human moral compass on Peter Pan and expect him to act like a human is as absurd as asking a wolf to act like a human.

    The Fey are powerful, intelligent and strong. They also have no more obligation to treat us kindly than we do chickens. Some people are vegetarians. Most are not. Not sure that the chickens can tell the difference.
