Good that enlightened New Jedi Order led by wise Luke, resigned from this strange social engineering. 80% of New Jedi Knights are guys who joined the ranks between 16-30 year of their lives. And they indeed proved that they are as good as those prequel products of artificial non-family upbringing.

HERMOCRATES:

Nur Ab Sal was one such king. He it was, say the wise men of Egypt, who first put men in the colossus, making many freaks

of nature at times when the celestial spheres were well aligned.

 

SOCRATES:

This I doubt. We are hearing a child's tale.

Yeah, it's strange that family ties are frowned upon, yet the bonds of friendship are okay (like for Luke in ESB between Han, Leia -- he didn't know she was family then -- when he risked his Light Side training and therefore the fate of the Galaxy for two people, a walking carpet and some scrap metal).

 

Maybe Jedi should not be sociable: more monastic and less chatty. But then what are they defending? If the Jedi order is the semiotic equivalent to the Samurai, then it should be derived from Shintoism/Confuscianism, so: one of its central tenets would be the pre-eminence of the family in general and filial piety in particular. So they are abrogating their own filial piety to defend everyone elses? Sounds like a recipe for disaster, like Roman Catholic priests not being able to marry.

 

Methinks Luke had the right idea, let the Jedi live a life that is an example to others. :blink:

Agreed with Luke. Disagreed with the "not sociable" part.

One Ring to Rule them all

One Ring to draw them

One Ring to code them all

We are the Elite four, we went to high school together, and code games together, I rule them all (Writer/Designer/Director)

-Big Phil (calls Yao ming short, for good reason...) Draws thelevels and basic area coding

-Manu codes our AI, called latte, not for his skin, but he never stops fidgiting

-August edits our code, still has coffe in his class/company ring, and puts so much spit & polish on our stuff, his spit would flood the whole of Mars
