Anya: Me too.
Xander: But you gotta believe me, please, I want to make up for it. I wanna take away the hurt. I love you so much.

Entropy: "a doctrine of inevitable social decline and degeneration".
5 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What an interesting definition of entropy. Why? Because this episode -- Entroypy -- is, in some ways, just another in an increasingly long line of boring, mindless BtVS episodes. On the other hand, Entropy, maybe more than any other episode, zeroes in on exactly what is wrong with the entire BtVS series, in particular, and MSM presentations of society as a whole -- paralyzingly weak male role models. Over. And over. And over.

This is certainly not the only series to promote such images. In fact, most TV shows and movies do exactly the same thing, although maybe not to the same degree as BtVS. But even assuming this is true -- what do they have to gain by this? This is what they have to gain -- TV shows and movies have emasculated men to the degree that authentic male-female relationship role models have all but disappeared. Entropy.

But why? Because it's being perpetrated by global interests intent on ripping social structures as we know them to shreds. It serves their interests, all the while seducing us into believing that what we're seeing is something good and progressive. But it is something that is neither good nor progressive; it is regressive and unnatural to the nth degree.

Whether this is intentional on the part of Whedon and Co., or whether he/they actually believe in what they're spewing is irrelevant; the net result is the same. The more we get bombarded with these ridiculous examples of twisted, inverted human behavior, the more we begin to change of view of the world around us. Xander Harris. Rupert Giles. Oz. Angel. Spike. ALL -- to one degree or another -- are clear examples of emasculated male role models.

Yet even in his extremely emasculated role, Spike still manages to nail the essence of the Scoobies when he says to Anya: "We should have been dead hundreds of years ago. And we're the only ones who are really alive". He captures the way the Scoobies lie to themselves and others, and how they repress their true inner natures -- the men AND the women. See...that's the thing. This inversion of roles helps no one. It just rips society asunder and leaves everyone more alienated, alone, and full of despair. That opens the gates for enslavement and depopulation -- the two main goals of the globalists. To them...people are either commodities or liabilities. And for them, the fewer...the better.

Entropy, indeed.
