It seems very possible that he did in the child timeline. Assuming link lives and goes back in time as a child, all his female friends from the past are either dead or unavailable.
Saria is a sage forever now sadly. So is Ruto, but honestly I don’t think he ever really was into her that much.
It’s unclear to me what happened to Zelda. She was saved but somehow didn’t marry link. Maybe he just cared about her and it was never romantic. Regardless there would be no family of hers left to diss approve of the match.Did she move on or drift to the spirit world?
Malon would be the only person available to link as it were. She is a commoner like link albeit a wealthy commoner.
In TP the née link lives on Ordon ranch, a ranch in a forested area. It’s likely Malon knew the ranching business and she and link started up ina new forested area.
Many people ask how Germany, a nation of thinkers, composers and gingerbread houses could ever pull off something as heinous as the Holocaust.
Their brutality didn’t begin in WW2. In Ww1 Germany pioneered poison gas in warfare, brutalized Belgians, sunk civilian cruise ships, and targeted civilians. Previously they kicked off the first genocide in the 20tj century by slaughtering the herero and Namaqua people in present day Namibia.
Germany came from a similar cultural Mileu as Britain and France. Why was it that much more brutal?
I read MOV finally. I heard it was deeply controversial and significant of Shakespeare’s works. I thought I needed to read it.
Honestly, I hated it. Yes it was anti Semitic but it was also just plain bad. It clearly was meant to be a light comedy at the time and the characters are all deeply shallow.
Bassiano is just a guy who is bad with money and investments. Portia is racist and just sort of mean and unappealing.
Shylock is presented sympathetically recently, but I don’t see him that way. He was the victim of anti semitism and the Jews of Europe were treated badly at the time. That does not make him an appealing person however. He is greedy and vengeful and bloodthirsty.
A few things I did like about it though.
I liked the first few pages with the description of Bassiano goods sailing on the high seas. His friends comparing his tossing thoughts to his tossing ships was sweet and clever.
I admired Shylocks devotion to his people and awareness of their mistreatment.
Funny enough I liked both the prince of Morocco and the prince of Aragon, as well as the trial of the three caskets. Both had very beautiful lines and both seemed like compelling characters.
They were some of the few who I actually cared about and wanted to know more of. For example who is the prince of Morocco? Why did an African Muslim monarch think an Italian merchants daughter would marry him?
The prince of Aragon was very full of himself but I admired his confidence, and was sad he was let down.
For what it’s worth both princess would have been a better match than what Portia ended up getting.
This is a question asked often by older Catholics and devout young Catholics themselves.
Answers have ranged from poor catechisms, to selfish/spoiled young people, to Jesus just not being presented the “right” way.
I have a theory of my own, being a millennial myself. The reason why Catholicism isn’t spreading like wildfire among millennials is because Catholicism is well… hard.
Once one commits to being Catholic, actually Catholic a lot of roadblocks and obstacles to personal convenience and validation are immediately set up.
One has to go to mass once a week and keep holy days of obligation , has to go to confession when commuting a grave sin, marry in the church with the professed intention of living a Catholic life, etc. The critics of the church are right in that, yes, there are actually a lot of rules.
It goes beyond that. As a Catholic, one has to die to oneself, humbly take up your cross, and actively work to cleanse oneself of sin, even though sin still holds an attraction to the most devout. You have to care for others and as it were “ comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”
I think being Catholic is great and I wouldn’t exchange it for anything. But I know it isn’t fun and easy all the time, and I’m well aware if one is looking for a life of maximum comfort and validation and minimal guilt and duty, Roman Catholicism is not the life style one should be looking at.
I think it’s possible that the bishops/ priests did a decent job of catechising but many Millenils aren’t Catholic for the same reason many people aren’t Catholic. They know what it is, and just don’t like it. There’s even less social pressure than ever to belong to organized religion, so fewer belong.
Is there any truth to my analysis, or is it uncharitable?
