Tropes

“Nothing’s new anymore.. everything is derivative.”
Well, that’s not true; because everything has always been derivative, it’s only that now we notice it because we have better records.

For example, tropes of genesis and extinction events are so similar across cultures today that they are as unimaginative as the aliens in Star Trek (who all have two arms and two legs and a face easily altered by 20th century cosmetics instead of being, you know, alien!)

A trope that has resurfaced in the news recently is a certain Meghan as Jezebel. Look it up: Wikipedia African Stereotypes/Jezebel.
