The Mandalorian Creed
I really like The Mandalorian and watched a few episodes to catch up with the start of season 3.
There’s a lot of reasons to like the entire concept, but the Mandalorian Creed stands out. When Mando says he has to do something completely illogical and nearly impossible, the response is simply This is the way.
Despite a certain brutality, there’s a deep compassion and honor in the Creed, and Mandalorians uphold the Creed over expediency.
That’s one thing lacking in modern society. Everything is optimized for expediency, self-interest, and coming out ahead. There’s something inspiring in seeing people chose a difficult route for the sake of their values instead of mere expediency.
