Wow, the last two episode of Steven Universe were pretty fantastic.
I mean the show has been awesome from the beginning, but the last two episodes really kicked it up a notch.
It will be interesting to see why Lapis was in the mirror, and why her getting off Earth was a such a problem. And what that means for Steven, being half gem half human.
I’m guessing the Crystal gems were sent to earth? Maybe to invade, or watch it? See all the little bits we’ve been seeing about gem culture, the gems might have even been there before humans were even around. Maybe they started caring about humans, and the planet, and were afraid were ever they’re from would compromise that? Why they would resort to trapping and/or ignoring a trapped gem to prevent that definitely begs an explanation.
Also why Garnet would get angry vs. just asking Steven. I assuming them keeping all the secrets about gem kind to themselves has something to do with Rose. But they can’t keep quiet forever.
I also really love Connie’s whole involvement in the show in general *w*
I just really love this show, and I can’t wait for more.
Genghis Khan had a government with a code name “yassa” that had a standard of equality towards everybody. He prohibited stealing, defection of soldiers, wife stealing, and other rules which made everything safer. He gave full protection to everybody and had no favorites with anybody. The Mongol Empire did not emphasize the importance of ethnicity and race in the administrative realm, instead, He believed that appointments and responsibilities should be given by talent and skills not by wealth.
Mongols were highly tolerant of most religions, and typically sponsored several at the same time. At the time of Genghis Khan in the 13th century, virtually every religion had found converts, from Buddhism to Christianity and Islam. To avoid strife, Genghis Khan set up an institution that ensured complete religious freedom, though he himself was a shamanist. Under his administration, all religious leaders were exempt from taxation, and from public service. Mongol emperors were known for organizing competitions of religious debates among clerics, and these would draw large audiences.
The reason that his laws worked was because he enforced them on everybody EQUALLY! Regardless of race, sex, or age I do believe. Feel free to check the facts for yourself.
