"If popular psychological wisdom has it that you have to love yourself before you can love another, my story suggests that you have to love life before you can care about anything. The wager is that, to some small but irreducible extent, one must be enamored with existence and occasionally even enchanted in the face of it in order to be capable of donating some of one's scarce mortal resources to the service of others."

I think the most unheimlich thing about Wandavision is that it illustrates in miniature how 21st century comic films are the United States (and Israel, with WW1984) "addressing" their failures in their Wars on Terror, their moral culpability, by creating propagandic delusions in which they as god-like beings rewrite tragedy

(much like the Scarlet Witch constructs Westview around her, so she can have the picturesque life with Vision she always wanted)
