Eastwatch

‘Eastwatch’ is the fifth episode of the seventh season of HBO’s fantasy television series Game of Thrones, and the 65th overall. Here we see Dany saying goodbye to Jorah before he sails off on a dangerous mission on the other side of the Wall.

We see the bad message of this episode, in the sense of demoralising the Aryan male, when Jaime Lannister returns from the battle on the Roseroad, still full of mud combat. He tells Cersei that the Dothraki (who ride horses like the Mongols) would defeat any army. The reality is that if the dragon that helped the Dothraki were a metaphor for weapons of mass destruction, it would be the Aryan Lannisters who would have it, not the other side.

If in real history a Jewish sect hadn’t seized the soul of the Greco-Romans, technology and military science wouldn’t have been interrupted. A horde of Mongols would have had no chance against a Roman Empire that hadn’t declined. The West wouldn’t have been easy prey to invasions by non-whites as it was in the history we know.

If I were a film director, I would make films about this parallel world that didn’t exist: a Roman Empire without Christianity, where eventually the scientific method that the Greeks were about to discover would be discovered, and how without Christian ethics and with the technology they wouldn’t have only pulverised the Huns and Mongols, but the nascent Islam.
