Quotes

[first lines]
Sokka: Look, the inner wall! I can't believe we finally made it to Ba Sing Se in one piece.
Toph Beifong: Hey, don't jinx it. We could still be attacked by some giant, exploding Fire Nation spoon, or find out the city's been submerged in an ocean full of killer shrimp.
Toph Beifong: You been hitting the cactus juice again?
Sokka: I'm just saying weird stuff happens to us.

Masterful satire on capitalism
12 June 2020 | by arneshsenguptaSee all my reviews

Beautiful episode, and Ba Sing Se is a masterful satire on capitalism. The lies, the manipulation, the thought police to maintain 'order', to me they seem like even bigger and more despicable villains than the fire nation, but maybe that's because of how I can relate them to our own lives and the police/surveillance states we live in with constant censorship of evil, segregation of economic classes, ruthless/moronic authority figures, people living in fear. If nothing else it is a great critique of North Korea, but to me it seems like a critique of capitalist societies in general, be it America or China or India.
