Rey From Star Wars is Overpowered and it’s Terrible for Feminism
Emma Lindsay

A really strong woman who had to work alone for years before she succeeded at her chosen careers: spiritual healing and teaching others to heal, was Mary Baker Eddy. She said in the book that she regarded as the pinnacle of her life’s work, “Novels, remarkable only for their exaggerated pictures, impossible ideals, and specimens of depravity, fill our young readers with wrong tastes and sentiments. Literary commercialism is lowering the intellectual standard to accommodate the purse and to meet a frivolous demand for amusement instead of for improvement.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p 195) No movies in her day, but the parallel, Emma, with your concerns about unrealistic magic taking the place of persistent and dedicated work, stands.
