The author of this article is no doubt a learned person but also clearly knows nothing about escapism in entertainment and Game of Thrones. The storyline about Daenerys and Meereen isn't a parallel about third-world countries. It was there to show that Dany is a great conqueror but a horrible and raw ruler. If people in the show you watch are suffering and want to escape, that doesn't mean it fails as a form of escapism for viewers.
