There is a friendly company that is advertising Star Wars-based jewelry to fans on Instagram called Enso Rings. They have posted their advertisement campaign: REBEL OR RULE. Since SWAG77 is more interested in the Disney+ series: STAR WARS REBELS, an idea came up about SABINE WREN and her choice to REBEL OR RULE.
While most companies either organize their advertising campaigns or hire a professional Advertising/Marketing company to create their campaigns, social media sponsored posts are a different breed than commercials or print ads. Fortunately, there is more data and reach to a specific audience on social media than commercials or print ads. Therefore Enso Rings, however, designed their marketing campaign, organized their idea of REBEL OR RULE either by guidance by Disney Lucasfilm Limited and/or their interpretation of advertising campaigns from other companies. It is probably both entities.
But, REBEL OR RULE has one subtext in a movie, and then another subtext in STAR WARS REBELS related to the Mandalorian character SABINE WREN.
Enso Ring’s image of a woman with one braid across the crown of her head and ringlets falling on her face looks like PRINCESS LEIA. It seems their motif is to say that a leader like PRINCESS LEIA can choose REBEL OR RULE. She decided to REBEL.
So the idea is, what about STAR WARS REBELS as it applies to SABINE WREN?
Brief background about SABINE WREN: She was in the Emmy Award-winning show STAR WARS REBELS as a Mandalorian character and is a graffiti artist whose story is about leaving her family’s culture found life by rebelling against the Galactic Empire. A Mandalorian only fights for Mandalore. Any other form of government is either a choice or cause that believes but beneficial for one to fight. Mandalorians who fight for Mandalore fight together, but they wound up fractious and fight against each other to dominate all other families and clans. At the time, it appears SABINE abandoned that and the idea of being Mandalorian. She joined the REBELS and Rebel Alliance because she felt it was the right thing to do against the Empire, which she once was, and discovered how they killed and destroyed Mandalorians.
What is interesting about SABINE WREN is she comes from Mandalorian Royalty. Her mother is a Countess. The responsibility to rule as royalty is Sabine’s. She could surrender her royalty, but she will be a permanent outcast and unworthy of ever being called a Mandalorian. She could never wear her armor, and she could NEVER EVER come back into Mandalorian space. She knows this fact, and she thinks initially she is an outcast, but one day, she picked up a lightsaber that is the symbol of uniting the houses of Mandalore under one person with her ruling over them.
Without spoilers, but one, Sabine gave away this lightsaber to another Mandalorian to rule, Bo-Katan Kryze — who is unworthy to wield this sword. The sword came to Sabine, and she solidified her rights to it when she defeated the current IMPERIAL ruler of Mandalore, Viceroy Gar Saxon, in ritual combat. SABINE WREN DEFEATED a mighty Mandalorian Warrior who sides with the Empire, and in that act, became the “ruler” of Mandalore.
SO WHOSE RULE?
In the Enso Rings campaign, of course, for general Star Wars fans who only know the movies, the Galactic Empire rules the galaxy and is the villains.
In our case, with the Mandalorians, SABINE WREN fights for justice under Mandalorian writ and ancient warrior codes by ritual combat. She is the worthy owner of the lightsaber, called the Darksaber.
There are many reasons why she gave it away, and we have written about that in this blog and others. However, we think she knew that, and she was unwilling to rule over her people yet. She is a warrior by default, but she needs more training and diplomacy in the grand scheme of the galaxy. She also requires an army to solidify her rule, and at some point in the Star Wars story, there is a Mandalorian Purge, and many Mandalorians are dead.
So who can be in her army? An army of alliances? The Rebel Alliances?

Alien covenants were designed to keep Galactic Sectors separated from aliens. Some planets are now making it easier to erase them from legal holodocuments.
Suu and Cut Lawquane found an alien covenant in the deed to their homestead in Saluecami that barred anyone “other than the Human race” from owning a homestead. Although now illegal across the galaxy, the covenant would have prevented Suu, who is an alien, from owning the homestead
Last year, to celebrate the biennium of their charming homested, Suu and Cut repainted it in historically accurate colors — gray, bronze green and copper red. They commissioned beveled-glass windows to complement the original stained glass. And they visited the Saluecami Recorder, to have a line drawn through a sentence in their deed that once would have prohibited Suu, who is a Twi’lek, from owning the homestead.
“I’ve referred to it as the ultimate smudge stick to the homestead,” said Suu, a single stay-at-home mother who could farm herbs.
Buried in the fine print of their deed was an alien covenant, a clause that barred anyone “other than the Human race” from owning a homestead on the planet, Saleucami. For a long time, it was common practice to insert such restrictions into deeds. The covenants targeted people who were Aleena, Lasat and Jabiimi, but especially those who were Twi’lek.
Although discriminatory clauses are now considered unenforceable in the Galaxy, the family found a clause in the fine print of their deed and were able to get an updated holodocument in which the covenant is crossed out. “Now it’s redacted and rejected,” Cut Lawquane said.

I as the owner of SWAG77 supports the basis of #Juneteenth. However, SLAVERY GLOBALLY still exists. Here’s a flyer from @EndSlaveryNow to understand the issue & for this 1st US Juneteenth let’s donate to end all human trafficking.
Here’s why it’s important for all Comic Fans to end human trafficking: Before all this toxic fandom lunacy, fans thought it was okay to talk sexually in DMs. Having accounts showing off as slaves and flirting with people who they thought were of similar age. The slave accounts were all manned by individuals who were underage. But the “pimps” and “Johns” were real, some of them were pedophiles who follow the exact descriptions that End Slavery Now outlines.
Sure, I made mistakes in 2011, too. But I am not an asshole anymore, and I stopped making our mistakes and moved on. But I will never forget the harassment I got when I questioned the intent of “roleplay slave girl accounts” — which was to flirt with someone sexually as a moniker for roleplay in private messages. If sex roleplay cannot be performed publicly on a social media platform, then it probably should not be done privately. And they were not writing fanfiction at the time, so what are they practicing, exactly as fun? To roam around the platform flirting with anyone with a lot of lewd sexual language without context and no account marks and not think they will be discovered for their indiscretions?
The internet is forever, and these individuals said what they wanted to say me to silence me. They never thought I would not be able to use it against them as revenge. Yes, your posts may be 10 years old, and yes, you may have changed your minds. But no. Your real-life character is full of lies, and you will always be that shitty person that hurt me all those long years ago that I will never forget. Forgive. Doubtful. For what you did, I don’t care anymore. But you don’t believe in Juneteeth, Black people, their struggles, and what it is all about based on these 10-year-old tweets.
At least at that time, I already had a life of success. I chose to pursue this field of study. But these attacks are what the screenshots are for. And to think these lunatics tried to attack me on Facebook without me reporting them?
I will never, forget what was done to me. And here’s my proof. Never. Toxic fandom.
