OrganisedChaos Posted July 16, 2004 Share Posted July 16, 2004 I've been looking closley at the Star Wars universe and I feel there is a strong case for Jediism to be outlawed. I'll go through the evidence..... In the begining.........The Jedi exiled some of their darker members to the Sith homeworld where they interbred with them, turning the sith into a race of evil force-using warriors. Note: the Sith were innocent untill the Jedi turned up, it was the Jedi who corrupted them. We then come to the start of the original KOTOR. How would the republic feel about the Jedi then- The republic has just recovered for the Exar Kun war, a war caused by the Jedi- Exar was a Jedi who turned bad and started a devistating war. If Jediism were banned Exar would never have been trained and could not have learn't Sith teachings and the war wouldn't have happened........... Then when the Mandalorian's invaded and the republic asked the Jedi for help what did the Jedi do? Nothing! They left the republic on it's own. I'd imagine the rebublic senators would hate the Jedi for that, along with the republic army. Now we come to Revan, we know that yes he saved the republic, but what did he do then- he turned around and started taking over the galaxy! Now true the Mandalorian's would have done this, but remember what Carth said once.. "The sith are savages, even the Mandalorian's weren't this bloodthirsty" it seems to me that perhaps the republic would have been better off under Mandalorian control rather than having to put up with two wars started by Jedi! Also the republic army would not be to fond of the Jedi taking over a ship like they did the Endar Spire. Then Many jedi instantly swore alligance to Malak- how loyal can Jedi be.... Now consider the movies, the Jedi seemed to be so arrogant, for example Anakin- "This is a job for local security not Jedi!" Putting down that security chief like that just seems rude to me. When Mace Windu is told that he is 'impossibly outnumbered' he replies "I don't think so!"- this deffinatly sounds arrogant to me..... Now think of post episode 6- how would the rebel soldiers feel about the new Jedi that Luke Skywalker is training to be the new peacekeepers. If you were a rebel soldier who had fought against the Empire for years, killed 100's of Storm troopers, and risked your life for freedom, how would you feel if some kid who has done 2 months Jedi training started telling you what to do? You'd be pissed off wouldn't you? Yes you would! Maybe this is why there are so few jedi at the start of TSL, perhaps the republic got fed up with them and stopped protecting them..... How do you feel about the Jedi. Arrogant troublemakers, or loyal heros? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
