One Piece and politics go hand-in-hand; this episode I want to start to dissect some of the political ideas that make Oda’s narrative the special one it is. Today, I discuss the notions of control, hegemony and dominance that influence One Piece’s political landscape. Why are anarchy and order incompatible? How does the World Government legitimise its use of force? All this & more on this week’s episode of The Get In The Mecha Podcast.
