      +Micai Askauss gonna have to agree to disagree on this one. The original films were far from brilliant. They they were the Babe Ruth of sci-fi; good for their era but crap to today's standards. They were the best sci-fi among all the horrible sci-fi films. I bet if you watched them for the first time today that you would hate them. As Yoda would say, cloud your mind emotional attachment does.

    2:43 okay I'm gonna stop here cuz the emperor literally created the death star as a symbol of fear in the Galaxy. And yeah it can see the peace. But the title of this video is why the empire are the good guys. I don't think the good guys blow up planets just to demonstrate their power that shouldnt be messed with. Goodbye this video is blasphemy lmfao.

    So if the First Order are the descendants of the Galactic Empire and all the logic in this video is considered then that means they are also the good guys of the sequel trilogy. That therefore means that I will be rooting for them in episode 9!

  • Collin Jensen
    Collin Jensen Day ago +1

    except for the fact that the empire is an autocratic government who permanently ended the last of the senate, oh and killing innocent farmers on Tattonie in the search of droids, and enslaving the Wookies, and blowing up Alderan wasn’t a necessary decision cause they didn’t need to do it since they already thought they knew where the rebel base was and were only doing it to “make an example” or threat to the rest of the galaxy. This is an interesting video offering a different perspective, but it relies on giving cherry picked and distorted information in order to play the devils advocate. with all the people agreeing It really makes you think how easy this can be done with actual important information that has real world consequences.

    • Collin Jensen
      Collin Jensen 23 hours ago

      Jim Huss ENT Luke’s aunt and uncle were obviously murdered by storm troopers, since they were looking for the droids and no one else would have known that those droids had the death star plans and would bother to track them down specifically as the princess was the only one who knew other than the empire, which rules out it being the rebellion or any other group such as Tuskan raiders being responsible for their deaths. as for the wookies, yes it is cannon that they were used as slaves for the empire on kasheek. although it is possible to argue that it’s just Tarkins fault for the distruction of Alderan, it’s also important to note that he didn’t “press the button”, other imperial soldiers following orders found it in no way contradictory to the “peaceful nature” of the empire and blew up the entire planet. genocide isn’t a benevolent action. Also note that the imperial senate wasn’t disbanded in order to give more control to the individual governors, but to give more power to the emperor by destroying platforms for political opposition, and by separating them from each other and keeping them inline using the threat of absolute annihilation.

    • Jim Huss ENT
      Jim Huss ENT  Day ago

      Speaking of cherry picking...
      Only Obi Wan a "villain" claims the empire killed Owen and Baru.
      The Senate was disbanded and gave more control to individual systems.
      No Wookies were harmed by the empire(video says in the original trilogy).
      Alderaan was more of Tarkin than it was the empire as a whole.

    The way you argue for the empire is familiar to me. It is in the style of a Lincoln Douglas Debate or Public Forum Debate. Though many people are not familiar with this, and may see you correcting grammar as stupid. Especially the all caps Death Star, which is only in caps for clear cinema and storytelling reasons. If I were you I’d create a disclaimer. Assuming that this is not something to be taken super seriously.

    Great explanation. IMHO, what you've explained can (and had) applied to what happens in [the bible] Genesis and the Garden of Eden. Somehow and someway it was twisted to make it sound like _God_ was the good guy and the _snake_ was the bad guy. The book never even explained that the snake was also a _god_ but was the _Satan_ - Best explained by researching Enki and Enlil. Was it really good to be suppressed of knowledge? Was it bad that people were given the ability to chose and make their own decisions? Was it good for a _god_ to be jealous and wanted his followers to prove their loyalty up to a point of willing to sacrificing/killing their own child?
    This world we live in, the _good_ is the one that runs everything, right? I mean, the so called _bad_ people aren't running things, or are they? Really ponder on who are bad and who are really good. Make your decision based on their actions and you'll have an understanding of right from wrong because your gut will let you know, not your brain. There is a reason why there is such a terminology called _brainwashing_ and gut instinct. In this world, things that are supposedly good for can be bad (e.g. prescription drugs). The so called police force was established as a way to protect and serve the citizens, but is that really true? Just know we live in a world that is backwards. Only a handful of Earth's population are actually aware of this, but even moreso have heard about it and still choose to sheep. In this currently reality, the balance is offset and always will be, hence why there will always be a reset every few thousand years by _natural_ world-wide disaster.

  • Teufel Hund
    Teufel Hund Day ago

    All of the peaceful aspects would be attributed to the Republic that was in place before the Galactic Empire. Most of their ships and technology was to promote peace, but the Empire actually stole and forced obedience and forced scientists by threat to their families to create more offensive weapons, and it was the efforts of those who worked on the DEATH STAR to build in secret flaws, to oppose the Authoritarian and tyrannical Empire. These elements are actually alluded to, since the series actually picks up almost half way through a story instead of starting from the beginning, and the background may not be well known. Sorry, but your synapses of the Empire being the good guys is very cherry picked and not very stable. Also, the Empire is somewhat Socialist, and like most Socialist structures, the ruling class and military are the ones who benefit the most. Most economies have dramatically suffered under the Empire.
    Also, the reason they used bounty hunters to try and capture the millennium falcon is because the Empire is to obvious, and using someone outside of the Empire allows surprise, as all of the troopers are clones and are easily recognizable with or without the suit.
    The shooting scenes are a little cheesy, but the troopers aren't accustomed to accurately shooting, but just putting lasers down range, while the rebels have had to use guerrilla tactics to overcome the huge disadvantages in numbers the rebels have.

    The truth is: old trilogy is very naive, empire is bad and rebel is good. So empire is stupid and brutal, Jedi are good. But is all lie. Empire ends war, corrupted democracy, takes jedi order from power. Jedi in clone wars get position of generals, but they never been in any university! In the end they tried to remove chancellor, without any legal steps. And how jedi recruiting was? They take to order small children, so they never knew there is other way of living, they don't see their families anymore. Just look on Anakin, they took him to council, but didn't give the title of master. It was a bribe so he will spy Palpatine, but he has no voice in council. And, how even rebellion started, why they are fighting? How Evoks were able to fight with educated soldiers? That's why I like new trilogy and clone wars. It's not so black-white.

    Oh? And they destroyed two death stars? Lmfao THE EMPIRE DESTROYED HUNDREDS OF PLANETS AND CULTURES BECAUSE WITH THEM IT’S “Obey or die!” That’s fascism.

      Your right on that, your video is about the original 3 movies. But when the evidence debunking your claim is in the first 3 movies it makes your statments hard to justify.

      Okay, so even tho your video just goes over episode 4, 5 and 6 you can't base your theory on 3 of the 6 George Lucas films.

    rebel insurgents. insurgents are used to inflict massive damage, casualties and panic.
    imperial storm troopers. storm troopers are used to clear areas of conflict as quickly as possible. this usually means using heavy fire to suppress an enemy so arrests can be made. its their own fault if they put their heads up when people are shooting over their heads.

    fact - vader cries at his own misdeeds. why do you think he stands in silence for so long after every time he's HAD to hurt someone? this is most certainly NOT the behaviour of a murderous lunatic. also, anakin was mildly autistic, so he's never gonna get on with anyone, really.

    The genetic thing is wrong. Its been scientifically proven that blood related family members that have never had contact with eachother are naturally drawn to eachother due to familiarity. Normally understood as unconditional love.

    Another thing that completely justifies the actions of Darth Sidious (The emperor) to want and need to conquer the entire planet was the fact that there was a threat from the Vujon Vong (The Far Outsiders) . He wanted to militarize the whole universe so that they could fight off and defend themselves. Low and behold that after the fall of the Galactic Empire who were trying to protect everyone the Vujon Vong attacked and took over the whole universe. This was THE MOST deadly war in the history of the Star Wars universe. This brings Darth Sidious to role of protector of the universe not the conqueror.

    Certainly from the point of view of the EMPIRE, had they won, they would have been portrayed as the good guys. I guess this means we can assume the Rebellion won eventually.
    However, no matter how good a government MIGHT seem, if the government of Norway, the happiest country on earth, decided to NUKE Gotterberg to keep the other cities in line, then they would be the bad guys. Pretty much everything they do is morally questionable in that way. America in the modern world has similar issues, but so far it is still easy enough to distinguish how NATO does things vs most of NATO's enemies...until very recently.

    The Empire and the Rebels are both guilty of committing war crimes. From a citizens perspective both are evil

    The Empire finds itself in the same position as Cobra Kai. Two horribly bullied units allowed to be besmirched because their bosses were dicks
