I definitely recommend it. There are the handful of jokes geared toward children to get over as an adult, but its genuinely a great story and Uncle Iroh's character has lots of good messages and wisdom to share. Plus the character development is still some of the best I've ever seen.

Mako is best Iroh.

Tales of Ba Sing Se still messes me up. Iroh is the best and any who says otherwise are objectively wrong.

They also had GTA 5 out for free the week before, too.

Hurray for the days when you can get an $80-worth game for nothing.

Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

If an area belonged to us 500 years ago but never since then, it should belong to us – it is the cradle of our nation.
If a majority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must enjoy the right of self-determination.
If a minority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must be protected against your oppression.
All of the above rules apply to us, but not to you.
