The First Order are an ideological and vicious military organization dedicated to one thing: making the galaxy great again. But for whom? This week with guest Ross Brown of FanGirlBlog.com we look at how the First Order rose to be such a threat to the galaxy.

In the wake of the events in Charlottesville, VA - we thought it necessary to talk about a how cultural resentment and political ideology can fuse into a radical movement. The First Order seek to reclaim the glory, order and promise of the Empire. They capture the essence of neo-fascist movements across our own world, as well the chaos of nuclear proliferation by rogue states like North Korea.
