Am I the only one who agrees with Zaheer’s (and the Red Lotus’) philosophy? 

I hate how in Korra they write complex situations and always reduce them to good evil. Like, with the equalists, ignoring Amon’s bending, they had a legitimate problem with the way things were run. They were viewed as terrorists and suppressed. 

Now with the Red Lotus, they want to bring down the state, allow people freedom from dictatorships and progress life into some kind of utopian anarchist world. They too are terrorists. Zaheer did more for the poor of Ba Sing Se than Korra ever did. 

Who’s the real terrorist?
