Hildegard Posted May 14, 2005 Share Posted May 14, 2005 When it comes to Jedi and their policy towards love it always irritaded me, I can understand the Dark Jedi being all destructive and similar.....I think that in SW universe, and espacially between the force sensitive individuals, love has been unfairly neglected, by the Jedi - with the whole speach that it leads to the dark side and crap like that, and the Dark Jedi - who obviously think that love is for pathetic light siders....kind of ironic..... I think that the main problem is that Jedi keep on and on mixing emotion-passion and love, sure those things are closely connected, but you can't just throw them in the same basket, and that's excatly what the Jedi did, which is a clear sign of a lack of wisdom and their inability to solve the ever-complicated issue of love, so they took the easy path and equalized passion-emotions and love. The best explanation about love and the Jedi was that made by Jolee Bindo, who is by me more wiser then the whole Jedi council in KOTOR, he said: "The Jedi, with their damnable sense of over-caution, would tell you love is something to avoid, thankfully anyone who's ever been partially alive knows that's not true. Love doesn't lead to the Dark Side. Passion can lead to rage and fear, and can be controlled....But passion is NOT the same thing as love. I just think that the greatest things in life shouldn't be avoided because they come with a few complications. How you deal with the bad part of love is what determines your character, what determines the Dark Side's hold over you. Controlling your passions while being in love....that's what they should teach you to beware. But love, itself, will SAVE you.....not condemn you." Your thoughts...........
