Why Couldn't Daenerys "Break the Wheel"?
May 9, 2019
***NO SPOILERS FOR SEASON 8***
In Game of Thrones, Daenerys Targaryon claims that her goal is to "break the wheel" of power crushing ordinary people under the spokes of the ruling class vying for power.
But what does that actually mean, and has Daenerys actually demonstrated any ability to do what she says she will?
On this episode of Out of Frame, we take a look at what it takes to create a world allows the majority of individuals to escape the kind of grinding poverty and misery so prevalent not just on fictional shows like Game of Thrones, but in the least free parts of our real world.
