Editor’s Note: The series finale of Game of Thrones was shot through with red pills which revealed the show itself was a reactionary mirror of our world.
That was a beautiful ending to the best show on TV.— Andrew Yang (@AndrewYang) May 20, 2019
What if Bran had godlike omniscient powers which made him the wisest person in Westeros and put him “above the fray” and far more capable than anyone else of ruling as king? Did anyone else even notice? ? https://t.co/FzJuvMqd9j— EMPEROR ‘KINGFISH’ WHITEPILL (@CptBlackPill) May 20, 2019

I couldn’t have been more satisfied with the ending of Game of Thrones because Bran Stark emerged victorious in the end after eight seasons as the new king of the Six Kingdoms.
Bran has always been my favorite character in Game of Thrones because after becoming the Three-Eyed Raven he was endowed with godlike omniscience to see the past, the present and the future. This quality strongly resonated with me as a historicist. He became the wisest man in Westeros and the only character in the show who was truly “above the fray” and thus qualified and capable of ruling in the end after all the bloodshed as a benevolent monarch and philosopher-king:
“Tyrion and Bran met again in the final season of the series, the two of them joining forces beside a fire before the great war against the Night King (Vladimir Furdik). The scene cuts short, but it’s heavily implied Bran gives Tyrion a full accounting of his journey from Winterfell to the cave of the Three-Eyed Raven — an accounting that largely fuels Tyrion’s overture of support for Bran as king.
“I’ve had nothing to do but think these past few weeks, about our bloody history, about the mistakes we’ve made,” Tyrion tells the gathered lords and ladies of Westeros. “What unites people? Armies? Gold? Flags? Stories. There’s nothing more powerful in the world than a good story. Nothing can stop it. No enemy can defeat it. And who has a better story than Bran the Broken? The boy who fell from a high tower and lived. He knew he’d never walk again, so he learned to fly. He crossed beyond the Wall, a crippled boy, and became the Three-Eyed Raven. He is our memory, the keeper of all our stories. The wars, weddings, births, massacres, famines. Our triumphs, our defeats, our past. Who better to lead us into the future?” …”
Sam briefly suggested that Westeros adopt a democratic form of government before he was laughed at and dismissed by everyone else who chose Bran:

The single best moment of the finale was when Jon Snow put down the Mad Queen Daenerys Targaryen after her genocide in King’s Landing (London):
“Indeed, many of those who believed in Daenerys throughout the series were deeply unsatisfied with the way she waged war over King’s Landing. The opening acts of the series finale involve Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) literally sorting through the rubble of the disaster, discovering the dead bodies of his siblings. He eventually reaches the Red Keep and watches as Daenerys speaks before her gathered forces, ash falling down on the ruins of King’s Landing as she sketches out her vision of the future.
“Blood of my blood. You kept all your promises to me. You killed my enemies in their iron suits. You tore down their stone houses. You gave me the Seven Kingdoms,” she tells them, speaking in High Valyrian. “Unsillied, all of you were torn from your mother’s arms and raised as slaves. Now, you are liberators. You have freed the people of King’s Landing from the grip of a tyrant. But the war is not over. We will not lay down our spears until we have liberated all the people of the world! From Winterfell to Dorne, from Lannisport to Qarth, from the Summer Isles to the Jade sea. Women, men and children have suffered too long beneath the wheel. Will you break the wheel with me?”
It’s the same speech that, in the past, would have caused the audience to stand up and salute the Khaleesi. But given the context of “The Bells,” not to mention the haunting score from Ramin Djawadi, Dany’s words take on darker meaning. The meaning is punctuated when Tyrion approaches and resigns as Hand of the Queen. He’s immediately placed under arrest. Moments later, he and Jon Snow meet in his makeshift prison cell; Tyrion tries to convince Jon that the only thing to do now is take down Daenerys in order to save the rest of the world.
“When she murdered the slavers of Astapor, I’m sure no one but the slavers complained,” says Tyrion. “After all, they were evil men. When she crucified hundreds of Meereenese nobles, who could argue? They were evil men. The Dothraki khals she burned alive? They would have done worse to her. Everywhere she goes, evil men die and we cheer her for it, and she grows more powerful and more sure she is good and right. She believes her destiny is to build a better world for everyone. If you believed that, if you truly believed it, wouldn’t you kill whoever stood between you and paradise?” …
When Jon Snow enters the throne room, Dany does not flinch from her actions. She doubles down on their necessity in the following exchange with Jon:
Daenerys: “We can’t hide behind small mercies. The world we need won’t be built by men loyal to the world we have.”
Jon Snow: “The world we need is a world of mercy. It has to be.”
Daenerys: “And it will be. It’s not easy to see something that’s never been before: a good world.”
Jon Snow: “How do you know? How do you know it will be good?”
Daenerys: “Because I know what is good — and so do you.”
Jon Snow: “I don’t.”
Daenerys: “You do. You’ve always known.”
Jon Snow: “What about everyone else?” All the other people who think they know what’s good?”
Daenerys: “They don’t get to choose.”
Tyrion, Tywin Lannister’s Prodigal Son, turns on Daenerys after watching her murder his family and lay waste to his country which awakens his true loyalities as a Lannister and completes his story arc.
After vowing to carry on to “liberate the world” from Winterfell to the Summer Isles by destroying it and murdering anyone who resists like she had done in King’s Landing, Jon Snow felt a sense of duty and stabbed Daenerys and killed her. Thus, the show concluded by showing that SJWs like Daenerys are motivated by evil and lust for power, not by good and humanitarianism. The honorable traditionalist protagonist Jon Snow killed the mad progressive tyrant antagonist Daenerys.
Who should rule Westeros? The wise Bran the Builder, the Three-Eyed Raven and keeper of memories and traditionalist, not the wrathful Daenerys Targaryen and her foreign hordes.
UPDATE: The Daily Stormer is celebrating Bran’s triumph as a victory for incels. The whole story began when Jamie Lannister pushed him out of the window after he was caught romping with his sister. Liberal White women haven’t been this mad since Hillary Clinton lost in 2016. Zack Beauchamp of Vox.com is calling it “a personal slap in the face.”
Note: Grey Worm and the brown foreign hordes of Unsullied and Dothraki just kind of sulk and depart Westeros (Europe) and sail for the Summer Isles. The North (Scotland) also secedes and becomes an independent kingdom. The story couldn’t have ended any better.
