Tarkin’s Top Shelf #58: The Evolution of Manipulation in Star Wars

In this episode of “Tarkin’s Top Shelf,” Mark, and Becca discuss the evolution of manipulation in Star Wars. Star Wars has always touched on relatable dynamics, and the manipulation between master and apprentice is no exception. But, the times have changed, and so have the characters in the galaxy far, far away. And yes, each generation has a story, but with each generation, the pattern not only continues, but it also expands. The roles of the protagonist and villain have become more complex and in turn, more relatable. So, get ready to journey into the depths of classic conditioning, psychological control, and Stockholm syndrome with a Star Wars twist as “Tarkin’s Top Shelf” tackles the evolution of manipulation in the galaxy far, far away.
