    The Rick and Morty is back! The season premiere, "Edge of ToMorty: Rick Die Rickpeat", left me with so many theory ideas and I couldn't wait! This episode showed us a side of Rick and Morty we haven't seen before and I LOVED it! In fact, I think that there was a life lesson hidden somewhere in all the jokes and violence. What was that lesson? What did Rick mean at the end of the episode? I'm here to explain it all to you!

So glad to see so many of you liked this more "laid back" style. It helped us get the episode out same week, rather than weeks later after all this was relevant! That said, seeing a lot of comments about the green screen, lighting, and background, so quick note: I had to film while traveling, meaning stuff was a bit rougher than it normally would be. Shouldn't be a problem in the future!

AYN RAND, really??? At 8:40 you compare Morty's philosophy to Ayn Rand's Objectivism??? What Morty does in this episode is very very far from Objectivism. Maybe more like Friedrich Nietzsche's ideas of the Ubermensch or super man. Rand has to much respect for the rights of others to inflict all the harm Morty does here. Also Rand's idea of selfishness is to rationally evaluate your life and goals apart from emotion to live the best life you can. Morty is acting on emotional premises, violating other's rights and wanting death as his goal. That sounds much more like Nietzsche. Check out more about Objectivism at this quick video; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asery3UeBj4

Did anyone else notice that, at the end of this episode, Jerry forbids Morty from doing any more anime things and then they literally released two anime mini-episodes of the show once the season ended? I wonder if that'll be brought up in season 5.

This episode type was AMAZING. the former scheme sometimes was so ... graphic ? that it diluted the amazing amount of depth you bring into each video. it's hard to take seriously your face with big Who Frame Roger Rabbit eyes but this analysis . Was amazing. i guess maybe when you want to get serious do More one on one and less Film Theory cartoon looks. do those maybe for smaller theories .

I think u hit the nail on the head, I got something I want to add tho. When hologram Rick walked into the goo, in his mind he had become a god and that he was untouchable, until he was easily defeated by wasp Rick. So basically no matter how powerful you are or think you are, you can always get taken down a peg. You'll always have some sort of weakness because anything is possible, nobody is invincible.

Nobody else cares about be the same way i care about me which is applicable to almost everybody. Nobody actually cares about you as selflessly as you do which is somehow selfish but selfishness is relative and inherently selfish only when the user percieve it to be so making it a stupid word. What's the point of this? Nothing. Just like the universe, our lives and everything therein.

Rick and morty often references Nietzsche and this one looks like his book Thus Spoke Zarathustra. In it a guy goes up a mountain to live for ten years to gain enlightenment. When he comes down he finds a crowd watching a tight rope walker and he gives a speech similar to what rick said to morty about why death crystals are dumb.

I know this video is a little old now but I just wanted to say: I think your interpretation of Objectivism is a little incorrect. What you’ve actually come closer to is a Max Stirner form of egoism where as long as you derive pleasure from your actions, those actions are objectively correct. In truth, objectivism is about *rational* self interest. Meaning that Morty, if he were truly an Objectivist, wouldn’t allow Rick to die to achieve his “objective” goal, as in Objectivist philosophy, murder is considered a selfless act. You’re making an innocent person sacrifice their life for your benefit only, which — if you’re an _actual_ objectivist, not the shitty version of it Atlas Society perpetuates — is something you’ll want to avoid. For an example of this, look no further than James Taggart, the antagonist of Atlas Shrugged. There’s a controversial scene in the book where because of an error at Taggart Transcontinental (the train company he and his sister Dagny, the protagonist of the story run) two trains get into an accident and blow up a tunnel. To me, this represents that phony version of objectivism people are lead to believe. James doesn’t care about the outcome of his choices to send in another train even though he knows one is stuck, because if his plan succeeds, the incoming train will still arrive to its destination on time.

What I like most about your new style, is one most evident when compared to other YTers; it seems like you said (at least) most of it in one go. No cuts. Some of your colleagues are almost notorious when it comes to cuts, and they seem not to understand how off putting their content becomes because of it. I really appreciate you took the time to say your lines properly in one go. Thumbs up for that. 👍
