Who is Lilo, and Who is Stitch, and Why It Matters

Ohana means family, and family means a group of people united by blood or social relation who share responsibilities and mutual care-taking.

Who are Lilo and Stitch?  

“Lilo” and “Stitch” are the titular characters from the animated motion picture of the same name, “Lilo & [sic] Stitch” produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation. Alternately, the phrase “Lilo and Stitch” can simply refer to the film itself, or it can be a phrase said by one of the other characters in the film to refer to the title characters (i.e., Lilo, but also Stitch) as a unit. (Note that this does not happen in the film.)

Why does this matter?

It matters because epistemological certainty is our only bulwark against the seething chaos of entropy and moral relativism. It matters because it MUST matter — because if Lilo and Stitch can be anyone OTHER than exactly who they are, who they always have been, and who we know them full damn well to be (i.e. Stitch, but also Lilo), then all is lost, and NOTHING matters. Our lives are poised on the brink of the abyss. Be careful how you tread.

    Whether or not it happened, I like the idea that Stokes watched the entire film all the way through to double-check that no character actually said “Lilo and Stitch”.
