    I mean, seriously? Killing kids is okay cause ya know, the Jedi attacked the Sith first?
    Please. We have what the Dark Side make people do - genocide, murder, destroying entire planets.
    If the Balance of the Force truly require that there be both Dark Side and Light Side users, then the best solution is clearly that there be none of both.

      The Dark and Light side thing isn't really about Jedi vs. Sith it's about democracy vs. empire, letting the world develop based on a set of principles vs. directly shaping the world from a vision, slave morality vs. master morality. The only reason you think slave morality/democracy is good and empire/master morality is evil, is because you were raised and brainwashed under democracy with slave morality. All of our ancestors for known history believed in master morality, empire and shaping the world to their liking. But they weren't slavish pussy-whipped cuckolds who were scared of strength, they still had healthy levels of testosterone in their veins, wives in their kitchens, and killed foreigners on sight.

    The Jedi and Sith are just two sides of the same cred chip, who’ve been engaged in a religious war for millennia. That wouldn’t be so bad, except for the fact that they catch the rest of the galaxy up in it, and end up killing trillions of beings every time it comes to a head.
    Personally, I’ve always been more interested in the mundane folk of the galaxy. Those are the beings who make their impact on the story of the galaxy, without the finger-wriggling crutch of the Force. Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, Wedge Antilles, Boba Fett, Grand Admiral Mitth'raw'nuruodo, Rebel and Imperial militaries, they’ve all made an impact, many without ever even having seen a Force user.

    There was another dark secret. The Jedi have engaged in genocide several times. Each time to eradicate those with a symbiotic relationship to the dark side of the Force. Namely the extermination of the Sith at the end of the Great Hyperspace War. It was not merely enough to defeat the adolescent Sith Empire and render them militarily powerless. The Jedi led Republic forces in going door to door and killing every last Sith, Human, and Massassi man, woman, and child. On Korriban, Ziost, every Sith world. Millions killed... because they were marked by the dark side.
    And that is why the Sith are obsessed with revenge against the Jedi. Even though Bane, Sidious, Krayt, and many others were never personally victimized by the Jedi, the dark side worked though the Sith. And the dark side demanded justice for all the wrongs done in the name of the light.

    The problem with the new movies is that they exist. Episode VI gave a nice happy ending. Just the fact VII, VIII and soon IX exist, means they all didn't live happily ever after after all. They were doomed to fail before they began. Really, with so much Star Wars lore, why can't they just move on from the Skywalkers already? That arc is finished

    Accepting the "Grey Side" of the force ultimately leads to the dark side. If you let in the evil of the Dark Side you are corrupting the purity of the Light and good of the force, and ultimately lying to yourself in saying that you still are good. If you let evil into yourself how can you say you are not evil?

    Sith philosophy also comes from the east. Just watch temple of doom, you can see the thugy cult which is the skeletal frame work of sith. In Hindu philosophy, there is this enlightenment non violent path, but also the left hand path of tantra and all the things you see in temple of doom. But in actual Hindu philosophy the left hand path is not considered evil but another way of doing things. George for the western audience who used to be all about dualism made it evil vs good. I think western audiance is more enlightened now and can correct that mistake. However my expectations are very low with the current team at lucasfilim.

    This is the fallacy of moderation. There is no such merit in the far right, there is no mix between freedom and slavery that creates a higher synthesis. There is no moral equivalent between fascism and those who oppose fascism.

    Separation of Church and state would do wonders for the galaxy. Also demilitarizing both the Sith, Jedi, and Force cults would also work. This way the religious conflict between Sith and Jedi would be ended. The Jedi basically wipe out any religious dissidents abs burn their tracts is knowledge or philosophy. After many generations of this the Sith are vengeful and focus on destroying the Jedi and then the Republic which protected it. The Republic and Jedi committed genocide on the Sith homework’s and I am not surprised that it culminated in Palpatine destroying them.

    I agree, the Jedi are narrow minded and believe that they are always right and only they can use and control the force for only the light side can exist and nothing ells.
    The SITH are slaves of there passion and get carried away in there cruelty, they over deluge.
    Moderation, light can not exist without darkness, nor darkness with out light.
    Jedi, SITH, SITH, Jedi, different sides of the same quarter.

  • Guy Stevenson
    Guy Stevenson 4 months ago

    The view of the force is no different than the life we live in this galaxy. It's much like, my apologies for throwing dangerous words around, liberals vs conservatives. They both influence life around them based on their belief structure. The truth is that it's the same for them, the Jedi and the Sith, as it is for us here on Earth in that is we come from the same place. The Sith and Jedi were, when the universe had more balance, as everyone always refers back to (like the "good old days" type philosophy), usually preached by the Jedi as if they had something to conquer as well, not accepting that they too are playing a part in the imbalance of it all (haha). At one point in that galaxy there were no Sith or Jedi, merely force users probably living more harmoniously and therefore no need for labels, much like the world we come from. Humans were at one point "primitive" but without labels. Once more defined ideologies came forth from man on any particular subject, the divisions were sewn and the labeling and, more importantly, the imbalance began. The Guardians of the Whills in Rogue One illustrate this best. They are the closest representation of what people may have been like in the days before the Jedi and the Sith. They used the force or perhaps it was the force, without labels or deep knowledge of or control of the force, used them. All they knew, as I believe primitive force users in the days before the Jedi or Sith believed in, was they were one with the force and the force was one with them. "It is the individual who imparts any will into an action being done, not the force itself".

    • Guy Stevenson
      Guy Stevenson 4 months ago

      The force works merely by the balance or imbalance currently going on in the universe, it has no will. While it's the individual entangled with the force, as they use one another until death, who works toward their individual will. Without this dynamic you have no spark of inspiration for life. The mystical, unseen and unproven tied in with the conscientious conscious sentient beings, both pulling on the strings that make life happen. Without one you haven't the need for the other.

  • Moon Milk

    I don't think Disney needs to re-define what the force is. We have literally millennia of the dark side and light side, and it's only recently that balance is being discovered? Seems like mitochondria 2.0.

    • Moon Milk

      ​+Josiah Nieman The force isn't explicitly defined. The Jedai are one point of view among many. If the force truly is balance, it sure seems to be terrible at it.

    • Josiah Nieman
      Josiah Nieman 4 months ago

      Disney isn't changing what the force is, they are only reminding people of what the force was and still IS, Balance between light and dark. Disney didn't make the Jedai, who as everyone knows were the original users of force, and what did they strive for? balance between the light and dark, so pray tell how Disney is changing anything.

    When you’re trying to say that the Darkside somehow was in the right, no they’re not they might’ve started that way in your version but if you look at it every time I dark Lord comes to power he always does something extreme highly volatile and highly dangerous to the world stage or a galactic stage look at Darth Malak he destroyed entire planet just to find two people, Darth Mellow created a giant unending slave cult bent on the ritualization of killing Jedi for centuries in the dark times, there are countless stories and accounts of cyst not agreeing with other people and just straight up killing them to get their way. Yes the Sith might have been in the right because they did not strike first but their morals in of them selves is corrosive violent and extremely manipulative and there end goals is the other destruction of any other group who does not look act or believe like the Sith and guess what other group acts like that..... Nazis there’s a reason why Lucas made all of the officers in the death star all white because he’s trying to subtly say that the empire is the equivalent of Nazis, Look I actually do like the Sith in a lot of ways they are interesting they are sometimes in a gray area and sometimes they’re pretty much just bat shit crazy but to say that the Sith are in the right is not true that is your opinion but if your systematic believe system is the complete eradication of another belief system then you are not right.

    Its possible the concept of dark side and light side is a lie and harmful itself theres only the force and whatever emotions you use while wielding it and whatever goal youre trying to achieve with it
    The force itself could also have some kind of "greater plan" that nobody can really control anyway. Things like "thats the will of the force" are talked about a lot so it could be possible whatever happens both good and bad is just part of a plan similar to things like "its all part of god's plan" in our universes religions

    Completely spot on. The Jedi hated their own humanity and sought to divorce themselves from it where as the Sith hate the idea of enlightenment, think it nothing more than self-delusion and cowardice towards acknowledging everything visceral that makes us human. This is assuming that any of them are human at all instead of possibly aliens that just happen to look like us. ;) The truth is that we need to look inward and outside of ourselves to understand our place in the universe. In fact, both the Jedi and the Sith were truly evil. In the end, the bad guys win. How does that hand your Star Wars hat?
