I actually wonder if she could make anyone a bender in this way. That's an interesting thought, theoretically if you go back far enough everyone in the bending world probably has at least one bending ancestor so I wonder if she could unlock some latent powers. Probably not but it would be cool.

Well she has the power to close the persons connections to the elements, but non-benders are born with their connections already severed. She also gave Bei Fong her bending back, meaning she opened her connection to the elements back open so I'm sure she can do that for non-benders as well.

Now that Aang can pass down s-bending (fail attempt to keep a spoiler) everyone is ******.

New option for equality? xD

But I always had in mind what the comic shows..since Korra's not questioning so much. She trusts people easiely and that makes it even more easy to take an advantage for yourself. ^^

Well Aang and Katara had a non bending kid, so if anything it should be more than possible to unlock bending abilities in a non bender if the ancestry is present.

Bending isn't genetic, it's spiritual.

The original idea of the franchise is that anyone could become a bender. Those who had a natural talent could bend without training though. A big clue to this was during a flashback Zuko had to when he was a kid, he could barely make a flame while is prodigy of a younger sister could bend like she could for years (of course, she was getting trained, but you get the point). This was stated in one of the commentaries by the creators in one of Last Airbender's episodes. Of course, Legend of Korra completely ****** that concept up the ass, so who knows how that stuff works now.

Basically, the concept was a little more fair, but then everything changed when the sequel attacked.

Im sorry if this post gets kinda long, but there are three ways to look at this: 1. Its a natural inborn talent some people have, such as singing, in which case Korra isnt able to bestow bending on a non-bender any better than a singing coach could teach someone with no voice to sing. 2. Its genetic, and therefor the potential to bend could lie in pretty much anyone in the avatar world, since the prevalence of benders almost garunteees everyone has at least one bending ancestor, giving Korra the ability to give everyone (in theory) the ability to bend. 3. Bending requires a physical and spiritual side, which is confirmed by both A:TLA and TLOK, as Aang learns from the Lion Turtle that bending originated as the people bending their spirit, or "Chi", and Korra is unable to air bend due to her having very little connection with the spiritual side of bending, but is able to bend the other three quite well due to being a prodigy with the physical side. In this case, we can assume the physical side can be trained like any other physical ability, such as weight lifting, so all that would be needed is the spiritual side, which as the avatar Korra can easily provide. I find 3 the most likely out of the three options, as its the only one that is confirmed in any way by the series, in which case the only reason Korra couldn't give non-benders the ability to bend would either be due to the fact she isnt good enough at spirit bending yet (which considering the second book is going to be called "Spirit" might be the case) or the writers simply dont wish her to have the ability.

It is hinted in TLOA that it is genetic to some degree, as strong benders usually had strong benders as parents. At least if I recall correctly.

I will say I am glad that someone else out there also has really complicated answers to seemingly simple things sometimes. While I didn't experience it here, I have similar trains of thought with other points that are raised.

~Shrugs~ Honestly thats just kinda how i am. I do this all the time with the KH series. I just think it would actually be pretty neat for Korra to be able to bestow bending on other people, especially since there could be 2 entirely new bending types (other than spirit) if the two as-of-yet unnamed books/seasons are named after elements like the first two, and all three books of A:TLA are. This could just be one way this happens. I'm excited :)

you can either make everybody a non bender or a bender.

amon didn't like bending himself the reason for it was that it backed down the growth of technology mostly because all the wars started thanks to bending. his ideology was that when people can't bend they will not start a war thus putting there time and energy into technology.

(i am talking about amon, not noathak

Think of it like gun control
you can give everybody a gun
or take them all away

as in america
people are stupid and want no guns
when a world where everybody has a gun would be safer
