‘Star Wars’ Is Still Intact by Rhett Wilkinson/Alysha V. Scarlett
What if there is a particular day when you fall out of faith?
There was at least that for Rhett Wilkinson: July 12, 2015.
Rhett/Scarlett didn’t expect that that would launch an existential crisis, though the departure of his wife and rejection by family didn’t help.
But he/she had to get out of a cult, and that came during an extraordinary cultural time in the United States. “Star Wars” returned to the big screen and Donald Trump was elected president, resulting in a public questioning of institutions.
Along the way came insights, narratives, or thoughts Rhett/Scarlett had that he may not have thought otherwise.
