This week’s episode brings up another interesting point with Maria’s rejection by the village. Isn’t it so easy to place blame when you have something tangible to reject? The grandmother was quick to accept a god’s grace because Maria wasn’t available to help her once, but conveniently doesn’t consider where that priest was all of the other times she needed medicine. In fact, it could be easily argued that a god sent Maria to help her before. If something can’t be perceived, there’s no way to tell for sure whether it had an effect on your recover, right?
The argument is similar with the war. The British side blames Maria for throwing a fight that they were apparently winning because it’s easier to blame her than to blame a god or to accept the fact that a god favored the other side. Kind of a fun thing to think about. Anyway, next week’s preview sounds like some philosophical monologue…not exactly helpful.
