The Philosophy of Code Geass
 
Code Geass presents viewers with a wide range of philosophically interesting themes and troupes, ranging from the situations of individual characters to overall trends in the plot to outright questions posed to the viewers themselves.

This thread is for the discussion of those elements, including but not limited to:
-Immortality
-Evolution
-War
-Order vs. Chaos, Dominion vs. Freedom
-What is Evil? What is Justice? And who decides?
-Ashford Academy: What is the role of Ashford in the middle of a world war, and what responsibility does the school have to Japan? To Britannia?
-The World of C: What exactly is the responsibility of the living to the dead? What about the dead to the living?
-The Power of the King: are those with power doomed to be lonely? Will involving yourself in the world only lead to your own destruction, no matter which side you choose?
-The Role of Fate: Were the events of Code Geass inevitable? Lelouch’s Rebellion? The destruction of the Specially Administrated District of Japan? The end of Lelouch and Suzaku’s friendship?
-Memories: Nature vs. Nurture? Is it inevitable for the characters who suffer amnesia to repeat their actions even if they no longer know why? Does it depend on the character?
-Zero: Does hiding your ‘true self’ help or hurt you? Are Suzaku and Kallen better off now that they’ve lost their ‘masks’? Does it benefit Lelouch to continue to hide his identity as the leader of the Black Rebellion from his family and friends?


For a more in-depth discussion of the issues of morality in Code Geass, please use the Morality in Code Geass? Do the ends justify the means? thread.

i take a stab at it.
One of the questions i asked myself is ashford academy. I am an American Citizen and also America is the world's superpower. There is evil in the world and that is fact. People lives go on even though a war is going on across the sea. For ashford academy there is innate racism to the Japanese. For Americans it would be towards middle easterners. This is not to say All Americans are racist. On the contrary i believe that there is a lot of us who seek Justice. One of the curious things to note is that what is happening in Brittanian itself? Ashford Academy is small glimpse of what is happening. On some occasions we see that life could not be more simple. Even though people are dying they live as if nothing happened. This is until crap hits the fan and Lelouch does his rebellion.

1. The question now is what should regular citizens do? Imagine if you would that you were part of Brittanian. What would you do?

This hits home for me. Although in no means do i believe that America is as awful as brittanian but neither can i Ignore that maybe stuff is happening that i simply do not know about. (Guantanamo bay is one instance)

P.S. sorry if this does not make sense

Blue_Mercy 2008-04-03 22:36

I just finished watching a marathon of Code Geass, so I wouldn't mind writing down my thoughts on these topics. Racism should probably be in there also.

Immortality- What a double edged sword this is. When it comes down to it I think most people if they are truly honest are afraid of dying, so at first this might seem like a gift. However, if time were to stop for you, and you were forced to watch your friends, family, buildings, countries reduce to dust through time it might quickly become a curse from Hell. Not to mention that eventually you will wish that someone had time stop for that person as well.

Evolution- "The survival of the fittest" law eh? I hate the idea, I truly do, but I'm not naive as to think that certain things that the Emperor said in Episode 6 that aren't true. Some people are born into rich families, some people are born with stronger bodies than others, and some are born better looking than others. However, I as Lelouch's character does; believe that what others refer to as "weak" can be more valuable than anything else in the world.
Also can we really be considered evolved beings if we kill each other more than any animal on earth? We have free will and logic, yet we still end up as barbaric as cavemen when pushed into a corner.

War- What a mess. Here we are thousands of years later and the peace we have been searching for we still can't find.

War is fought for many reasons; power, ideals, fear, greed, political struggle, land, sometimes a combination of these. Armed forces killing other armed forces, sometimes another countries soldiers, sometimes guerilla groups, rebels, or other factions. Also civilians get involved sometimes on purpose sometimes not. More often than not the only thing it brings is more sorrow, for the soldiers and for those back home. However, there is something to be said for those risking their lives, if there were ever unsung heroes it is them.

I'll write the rest of the topics soon, but right now I'm tired.

Yes they are lonely. People who are in positions of power over others will most of the time be lonely.

Why? Because they have to separate themselves from the people that they are 'ruling' over. You can be friendly but you can't be friends. Being a teacher can be quite lonely because you spend nearly 90% of the day with students (Who are significantly younger than you). I remember reading a cross-section book that stated that the life of a captain was quite lonely because he had to keep himself distanced from the crew in order to maintain respect.

For Lelouch's case, he has to make hard decisions that no one will make or will like but that's what being a leader is about. Choosing who gets to die.

(Note: I may not remember everything). It's simply for the fact that everyone is born different so therefore you fight with what you are given.

In poker terms, you play the hand that is given to you. Can you ***** if you are given a bad hand? No, you just make the best out of it.

Though the Emperor twists it with an even more extreme version of what I'm even discussing (Such as discriminating against honorary britannians). By my terms, everyone should be given an equal opportunity to get to their positions. By your terms, you'd be what Darlton would be, he tolerated an honorary britannian because he was valuable to him.

Aquaman OS 2008-04-03 23:22

The Emperor doesn't really discriminate against non Britannians.

If you are a number but prove yourself to be elite and useful like Suzaku then the Emperor will still acknowledge your skill and treat you accordingly (hence Suzaku's now an offiical knight, part of the Emperor's elite and higher ranked than most Britannians are). Emperor still thinks Britannian's as a majority are superior but isn't so mindlessly racist as to not realize a skilled warrior even he's foreign. Compare this to the purists who apparantly refused to believe that the Japanese made their own mecha and were beating them. What did they think they were dreaming?

On the other hand the Emperor looks down upon people that aren't skilled. Euphie was a full blooded Britannian and his own blood but he didn't have a very high opinion of her. In fact all of Euphie's siblings that are close to her Schinzel/Cornelia/Lelouch don't think very highly of her. They like her and her personality but she has no part in their plans and they don't want her involved at all. Only Cornelia seemed to even try to get her experience.

And for people that are crippled and can't be useful at all, the Emperor thinks don't even deserve to live. Nunally is also a full blooded Britannian and his own blood but after she was crippled he more or less wrote her off as dead even though she was still alive as she could no longer compete in the world and thats all he thinks matters.

So the Emperor is like Dalton after all if even more extreme. If you are strong he acknowledges you, even if you are foreign. If you are weak he looks down on you even if you are Britannian.

SoldierOfDarkness 2008-04-04 00:24

Well no actually during the episode where Euphie was readying the new museum of arts for Clovis, the curator noted to her that she couldn't select a certain painting because the painter was a quarter japanese(So what happens if the guy's 1/16th japanese?). To which she questioned why it was in there in the first place and he replied because it's a for show. Cornelia also noted to her that it's policy(or rather her father's) to differentiate themselves from the honorary britannians. If you want to change it you have to become emperor.

Technically speaking, Schenizeil is the first to disregard this policy and gave Suzaku equal opportunity to succeed but he and Euphie were allowed only because they are royalty so they are allowed some leniecy.

Though Suzaku is an extremely rare case, a one in a million so there will always be exceptions in those cases but I'm sure that honorary britannians still do not get the full benefits even if they do perform well in whatever they are doing. Though in R2 we'll see if the Emperor has changed it due to the black rebellion. With Suzaku as a Knight of Round it's a huge smack in the face on that policy.

OK, so what if you have the right to choose when you'll die? Immortality would be a blessing then, you can live until you're bored with everything and finally want to rest in piece. Neat eh?

Anonymity is in fact one of the most important factors in the Internet's exponential growth, is it not? We all feel more comfortable that way. Getting back on track, I'd prefer to have a mysterious mastermind as my leader any day (it greatly increases the fear factor, thus effectively enforcing discipline. Do you think the Japanese wanna know they're being bossed around a mere schoolkid who can't even fight properly? Not many at first glance)
The Emperor of Britannia is apparently the type of man that will push humanity forward (breakthroughs in technology), or at least in his belief (millions are killed in the process, and an even greater number are hurt, both physically and emotionally, e.g. Lelouch & Nunnally). However, it could be but a lie as he seems to have another ulterior motive for invading Japan (hinted in episode 18). I guess more light will be shed on the matter once second season is aired:D

ashlay 2008-04-06 12:59

Thought this was somewhat interesting:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/6...5229rh0.th.jpg

In the first episode of R2, Lelouch is reading Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy, namely the beginning section on the Sixth Terrace of Purgatory, the terrace where The gluttonous are purged of their sins.

Another interesting nod is that the captain referred to their mission as Operation Valhalla if I heard correctly.

There's a lot of use of Norse myth. Though that particular name is strange, almost as if the Emperor sent them to just die as soldiers.

Dann of Thursday 2008-04-06 15:03

Well, it could just be a reference without any real meaning. The only detail they didn't seem to get briefed on was that C.C. was immortal. Unless they did know and just waited too long. If they had just shot Lelouch the job would have been done.

Nilie 2008-04-06 15:04

Eheh, I think I like this thread. I am just surprised no one seems to have mentioned Machiavelli so far.
Lelouch surely does seem to be his 'Prince' character in more ways than one, don't you think?

... Sorry, I just thought it might be interesting ^^; speaking of the "The end justifies the means" morality and all.

metronome 2008-04-07 02:34

I think the most interesting philosophy in code geass is about the war to determine the meaning of righteousness.

one side think that being collaborator is the right way, while others view this side as "dog".
one side think that being rebel/"freedom fighter" is the right way, while others view this side as "terrorist".

not only, in the world, "terrorist"s always view the collaborator as "dog" and "traitor" and so does the "dog"s always view the rebel/"freedom fighter" as "terrorist" and "traitor".

collaborators:"because of this damm terrorist, we will have even longer way toward independence, since the colonialist will be more suspicous toward us, they will tighten their grip, watch our every move, etc"

rebel/"freedom fighter":"because of those damm dogs, we will have even longer way toward independence, not only that this will make us even harder to attack the colonialist to use them as cover against us, increase the number of our enemies, etc"

Bluehorsy 2008-04-07 05:50

Telling the truth. The use of mass media by both sides in season1 shows how it can be used to create a fascade, and manipulate the reactions of the masses.

like in the princess diana case....

Revolutionist 2008-04-07 21:37

I think the Emperor values strength over race, ethnicity and social class. He married Lelouch's mother even though she was a commoner, and she was said to be an incredible Knightmare pilot, then he appoints Suzaku to his elite guard. He stated it plain and simple, those who are weak are useless, those who are strong deserve power to rule. Suzaku is the only person who's gone up against Zero and is still alive, not to mention his skills in Lancelot are unmatched.
The Emperor would be a fool to not give Suzaku the power he probably has atm. Why should he trust those racist imbecile Generals and lesser nobles who've proved to be nothing but cannon fodder for Zero when he has Suzaku who just seems to foil every one of Zero's plans?

SoldierOfDarkness 2008-04-07 22:11

Or it could be that the Emperor is simply using Suzaku to test Lelouch to see if he's worthy of becoming his successor.

Dann of Thursday 2008-04-07 22:21

Or that could not be the case either.

Onizuka-GTO 2008-04-08 06:01

...or maybe the real reason is that we should just buy pizza and collect token for cheese-kun and limited edition CG merchandise.

yes. i have a strong gut feeling this is the underlining philosophical message. eat well from a 18" cheese stuff deep base pizza will stimulate a healthy well-being for all.

being hungry while musing deep ideas is bad for you.

pizza hut is your friend. call now.

Marioshinobi 2008-04-08 06:15

I don't think we should bring up the Emperor...

He hasn't been on that much to even define his personality or how he even thinks. He's made speeches(Could have been easily biased because...duh, he needs to rev up the Nobles and Barons)

I also doubt he would be using Lelouch as a Successor, but the fact he married a Commoner such as Marianne due to her being an excellent Pilot could be a sign that he was trying to aim for a stronger Son -FAILURE, Lelouch can't even dig a hole to save his life(seriously, I could see him dying without food in the island arc cause he failed to dig a hole)

We also have no idea what the King Desires, or what Rangarok/Ragnares or whatever he's searching for. Obviously he wishes to find it first using his Geass Ruins, Clovis himself wished to gain power using C.C. and Schneizel attempted to use the ruins at Kamenija, whoever does Succeed the Emperor will obviously take his place with the 'Ragnarok' plan or whatever.

He only watches Lelouch because he is about the only son(Game chars don't count) Who have received Geass. He's the best candidate to succeed him if he does get beaten, simply due to the fact Lelouch's power and he also assumes his mind is evil(He laughs during Euphie's scene and says " That fool actually did it! "; Somehow I think Lelouch moved up on his book due to it, simply because he didn't see it coming and is proud of his idiotic son killing off his siblings)

Dann of Thursday 2008-04-08 06:18

I'd honestly say that the whole thing with Lelouch would be secondary in his mind with the plan he has been working on. If his master plan involved making Lelouch the successor than that would actually be pretty disappointing.

KrimzonStriker 2008-04-08 12:41

And pretty pointless to bring in Geass at all. There's something deeper here, I can feel it, you don't go saying stuff like 'it's tied to the very existence of mankind' or 'it has the power to either create or destroy the world' for something as tangible and mortal as a mere throne.

Actually it really depends on if the Emperor is truly his ultimate opponent.

Most of the misery was bought on by unknown forces (Which Marianne and C2 may have been involved in) and the Emperor simply stuck by to his policy. That and you really can't expect him to show any weakness either.

For all intents and purposes his ultimate opponent could be Schenzeil(Which I am thinking he will be), C2 or even Marianne:heh:

Dann of Thursday 2008-04-08 13:45

Well, Schneizal was created with the thought of making Lelouch a nemisis, so he will probably be the person that Lelouch clashes with the most.

C.C. and Marianne actually being somewhat sinister seems quite possible as well. It would be incredibly cruel, but that makes it all the more likely. They may not be on the Emperor's side, but they may not be much better than him in what they are willing to do.

Onizuka-GTO 2008-04-08 18:26

personally i think the Emperor before did not think much of him at all, it was only after his attempt as Zero that is now making him interested in him.

i think the Emperor will play around with him, i think the current situation was left to the authorities.

They were ones to use him as bait for C.C. obviously the Emperor did not even tell them the truth about C.C. the target they were aiming for.

the fact is, if lulu/zero survives the attempts on his life by the Emperor then i think he will seriously consider him an heir.

I'm certain he holds true to what he preaches, and that he would never hand his throne over to anyone who cannot kill him.

its the ultimate Darwinism. Law of the jungle.

Witacume 2008-04-29 17:06

Well I had no idea where to post this thus I posted in philosophy since philosophy kind of incorporates everything :P. This post will look in the different ideas and thought process of different characters in this series.

First off Lelouch. In order to understand what lelouch is doing is to understand why he is starting rebellion to start off. I am not trying to Justify what he does or saying what he is doing is okay. I am simply stating his goals. Goal 1a. is to make a peaceful world for Nunally. Goal 1b. to take revenge for his mother Death. It is obvious at this point to say Goal 1a. has completely taken over 1b. Example 1 will be his willingness to abandon his plan for vengeance to get Nunally. His self reflection in Season 1 last episode is evidence to this. He realizes why is he fighting this lonely war if he is not with Nunnally at the end. The next step in the Analysis is how he plans to achieve this goal.

Destruction or Deconstruction (Path of Carnage). Lelouch finds the current form of Government oppressive and a terrible system. I believe we can agree that Brittanian is not the ideal form of Government. It oppresses the weak which is one of the main reasons he dislikes it. Oppression of the weak makes people Nunnally not worth very much in the world as she is weak. So Lelouch plan from the very beginning and reiterates with Urabe in Episode 2 R2 is to destroy britannian. Specifically the way he wishes to achieve this is by taking down the Emperor. This is proven by the Fact that constantly talks about Emperor and wishes to take him down.

This Destruction turns the world into Chaos. The Chaos that is war. This motif is not new. We can go back to the times Babylon and talk about Myth of Marduk. As Marduk destroys Kingu and out of the Ashes he creates Mankind. This idea is called Combat Myth, and it is talk about throughout antiquity. The reason I drawing from here is because Lelouch is Marduk. Marduk tries to free the other gods from serving. Thus Out of the chaos of Kingu he creates humanity. This idea of Chaos turning into creation is also found in the Hebrew Text of Genesis 1:1-2. The point being Lelouch way of getting his goal is thrusting the world into Chaos and rebuilding from that chaos at the end.

Since we talk about what his goal is and how he plans to get there one finally comes to idea of is it right. As said earlier there is no right answer to this question as this deal’s with a lot of grey. One must not put our own ideals onto him. For instance His priorities are wrong. Well for you maybe. Lelouch priorties are as he sees fits. Do I wish for him to change? Yes! I would want him to embrace his comrades more (Kallen :D). This is Lelouch Rebellions not yours. Hopefully I put some perspective into why he does what he does. Again this can change as the story progresses but for right now it is like this. Next up is the Foil Suzaku but it is for another time.

Dean_the_Young 2008-04-29 17:22

Personally, I feel that the most unspoken philosophical point in Code Geass is how Zero is the perfect embodiment of Britannian ideals. Power, cunning, rule by virtue of results, the not so occasional back stabbing, everything.

Dann of Thursday 2008-04-29 17:25

So he's the embodiment of corruption and evil?

The Britannian ideals aren't the glorrification of corruption and evil, the Britannian ideals are the ones that are read out in class early in the series, the ideals of the Emperor. That the strong deserve to rule the weak, that the ends justify the means, that victory trumps morality. Lelouch lives up to what every Britannian noble aspires to be.

ashlay 2008-04-29 17:45

Except for that whole, you know, United States of Japan thing. Equality and Justice are the basically the antithesis of Britannian values.

Let's look at the United States of Japan and the Black Knights, shall we? They are led by a man who's only justification for leading is that he delivers results. He has no other legitimacy other than that he is the smartest, most cunning one of them all. The moment he steps out of the picture, the United States of Japan topples like a tower of dominoes.

The United States of Japan's claims to justice are, at best, tenous. One of the original Black Knights prepares to shoot the student council for having the nerve to say that Zero would protect them. Zero holds the exact same Student Council members hostage as a tool against Suzaku. Where has the USJ shown that it has any more justice than Britania? That it accepts a handful of Britanians? Britannia takes nonbritannians as well when they follow the ideals of Britannia as expressed by the Emperor.

And that's not even getting into Zero's hypocracies as to what he's done while spouting off that USJ bs...

Anh_Minh 2008-05-02 07:49

Well, the USJ are mostly there to gather people around him. If he thought being openly "evil" would bring him more power than pretending to serve justive, he'd be kicking puppies and raping kittens on live TV.


I don't think Lelouch even is that much philosphically opposed to Britania's way of doing things. It's personal. Britania's destroyed his happiness twice, and is a threat to his sister, so he wants to destroy it. Unlike his father, he sympathises with the weak, but if not for Marianne's death and his fall from grace, he wouldn't care enough to do much about it.

your wrong.

Zero was the one who pledge the student council safety, but it was Lulouch who held them hostage against Suzuku.


You might say it's the same thing, but it's not.

Zero's agenda is to free Japan, protect the weak and up hold justice. So far he has done this.

However lulu is prepared to do anything to topple the Empire and to protect his sister with whatever means possible.

In the eyes of the people they are two separate individuals, thus what they see of each (or not see, as is the case for one)

they both have largely remind true to there goals.

And definitely have not done anything to meet the same level of hypocrisy as Suzuku has managed to do.

Obviously, when you know the man behind the mask, you tend to associate the action of one, to the other personality, thus creating the illusion of hypocrisy.

Well. I don't think that would include intentionally killing off innocent people or his friends. Suzaku is the exception because he's directly opposed to Lelouch. But Lelouch would not kill off Milly, Rival, or Shirely. He does care about them (episode 3 of R2 helps solidify this).

To be exact, Lulu place the defeat of the Empire secondary to every single person who is on his side or any neutral individual who he knows personally. He would literally plan around everyone. Empire has to go, but only under his own rules.

Austin1 2008-05-03 12:28

Lelouch doesn't really give a shit about freeing Japan he is just using the Japanese to his advantage so he can accomplish his goals. He is only appearing as a hero of Justice to get more and more support from the community. He is freeing Japan not because he really cares about freeing the Japanese but so that he has a loyal force he can use to achieve his own goals.

Also, yea he does care about his friends at school he is not a heartless bastard but he does follow the exact ideals of the Emperor. Oh, but he does hate when the strong pick on the weak because of his sister's condition.

Looks like Lelouch is a pretty complicated guy. Full of contradictions, since he's young
he thinks he knows what he wants but that might change when he grows up a bit...
