Star Wars Force Awakens TAOIST Review

Lots of special effects and media sensationalism. Star Wars is technically (Chinese) Taoism with aliens in the future (e. g. the Force (Qi), the Jedi's Way (Tao), the Light and the Dark Side of the Force (Yin Yang), Jedis (Daojun), immortals (Xianren), and so on. This isn't the first time Disney has "borrowed" from foreign originality: Hollywood looted German folklore and Grimm's Fairy Tales, Greek mythology, and Chinese philosophy before. Just saying.
