Under-appreciated Star Wars things: Take some time to watch every single background Jedi in Attack of the Clones. Watch the Jedi help each other into the carriers, watch Jedi take down battle droids together. Watch Aayla Secura lead a squadron into battle, and see Adi Gallia and Stass Allie kick ass. The Jedi extras of Attack of the Clones are amazing, and each character has a life of its own, even if glimpsed for a short moment.

Jedi Council: Attachment is forbidden

Jedi Council: Lets place very young students with a master whom they idolize and will grow to deeply love and respect as not only as a teacher but as a parental figure and closest friend.

Jedi Council: And the Master will spend every waking moment with there padawan training and getting to know them. They will be responsible for all care and protection of their student and form a very parent-child like bond, each willing to risk their life for the other. 

Jedi Council: Perfect.

you ever realize how low-key messed up the Jedi Order is?

I aint saying the Sith are good guys, they do bad shit as well, but let’s look at history on the other side of things.

> Paint Sith as villains when the were originally just a splinter faction with a differing belief system.

> Lead a court ordered genocide against a Sith planet that posed no threat after having been defeated in a war. 

> Fun fact, the Sith were only on that planet becuase the jedi had killed all but 12, stripped them of everything and put them on ships into random deep space

> Essentially the Jedi made the Sith what they are today through stupid decision making

> Abandoned their peace loving code (which was forged because of legislation disbanding their military forces, bringing about a thousand year era of peace) to become commanders and generals in the Clone Wars.

> Lead a violent coup against a leader who was actually elected once it came put that he was from a group they a personal vendetta against, because this is what peace loving space monks do guys.

> Literally train to feel no remorse or pity as opposed to the Sith who are expected to embrace the full spectrum of emotion.

Not even looking at the Sith though, they’re still just so

No, we don’t kidnap children. We take them because it is the will of the force. oh, and younglings if you ever feel the urge to meet with your family again you need to go talk to the counselor because something is wrong with you and that urge is bad

Beware of any other group of force users (even excluding the sith and evil people). We’re the only ones that can use the force properly. We are literally the only people in the entire galaxy that should have an organized group of force sensitives because everyone but us is wrong

Has a prophecy about the Chosen One bringing balance to the force and thinks that somehow means being blinded by the light. Hint: that’s not a balanced scale (I still fail to see how destroying all trace of the dark side is “balanced” but ok george lucas)

if you’re afraid you might turn evil, so don’t be afraid children, and don’t be afraid of turning evil because you were afraid.

If you don’t get taken as an apprentice that’s ok, younglings. You can become a farmer, but you’re still a Jedi to us. Unless we tell you to leave and send you back to that family we told you to forget about.

politicians are bad and we shouldn’t rely on them. It’s okay because its not like we deal with politics anyway. Anyway, let’s constantly harass the senate and pressure them into doing what we want

don’t get attached to anything. besides your lightsaber. and your master, but not really your master. don’t get attached or you’ll turn evil and probably kill everyone

Just in case some of you are interested…

Jedi Code:

There is no emotion, there is peace.

There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.

There is no passion, there is serenity.

There is no chaos, there is harmony.

There is no death, there is the Force.

Sith Code:

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.

And a third one also exists which is made by the gray Jedi. (The ones who’ve “gone rouge” but aren’t Sith)

There is no Dark Side, nor a Light Side

There is Only the Force

I will do what I must to keep the balance

The balance is what keeps me together

There is no good without evil, but evil must not be allowed to flourish

There is passion, Yet peace

Serenity, Yet emotion

Chaos, Yet order

I am the wielder of the flame, the protector of balance

I am the holder of the torch, lighting the way

I am the keeper of the flame, soldier of balance

I am a guardian of balance

I am a Gray Jedi

Not to mention the continuous mind-fucking of anyone they need to trick. Jedi legitimately are A-okay with manipulating the free will of others to achieve their means.

@actualanakinskywalker, you might like this. 

In case you’ve been fed too much Jedi propaganda.

Exactly.

#darksidepositivity (tag by @freysdottir)

THEN there are the GREEN Jedi aka Corellian Jedi.

LEts take a look at them shall we?
They are the last decendants of the Jedi lords..(aka Lord hoth, Prince arcann, Prince Thexan, Princess Vaylin, The out lander ECT). Another group that the council felt compelled to wipe out because they were not “in line” with how the council saw the ways of the jedi. 

As these last decedants of the jedi lords they believed that Jedi heritage was INHERANTLY genetic. Strong jedi parents, had strong jedi babies. 

So they believed in family and blood lines, and that these were IMPORTANT. 

So marriages, and often marriages between powerful Corellian jedi families were encouraged by the heads of the Green Jedi Enclaves. Examples of Powerful Corellian jedi familes: Halcyons, Horns, Mareks and others. 

The first thing this resulted in was some STUPIDLY powerful youngins.. RARE talents often found NO WHERE else abounded. Illusion projection, energy absorbtion, empathy, and rarest of all BORN healers. (jedi healers born with the knowlege of how to help people) and even tho hes legends.. do we really need to go into how stupidly powerful galen marek was (his mom was from the wookie home world his father was corellian)

Second, because these families were intact, and for that matter all  members of the Corellian jedi enclave were seen as extened family, these stupidly powerful force babies are raised in LOVING nuturing enviroments. They are taught both to use their powers , and right and wrong from the age of five through. Most often their master is their mother or father, or other close relative. Many will often study with others but family members usually teach them first. 

So you have stupidly powerful force babies, raised with a sense of right and wrong, and raised in their families homes in loving enviroments. 

WHAT does this result in? 
Simply put.. if you dig through the WHOLE EU/LEGENDS.. there is NEVER ONCE a instance of a Green Jedi falling to the dark side. NOT ONCE. 

THEY achieved the balance the main branch of the jedi order looked for. 

their code is as follows

CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS, TO FIND PEACE.

END IGNORANCE, BY SEEKING KNOWLEGE.

RIGHTOUS PASSION, PROVIDES SERENITY.

ANGER LEADS TO CHAOS, BUT TRUE LOVE IS HARMONY 

THERE IS NEVER DEATH, ONLY THE FORCE. 

Corellian jedi doing it right since revan’s time. 

Don’t forget that Mace’s lineage returned to the ORIGINAL, UNCORRUPTED JEDI CODE:

Emotions, yet Peace

Ignorance, yet Knowledge

Passion, yet Serenity

Chaos, yet Harmony

Death, yet The Force

And the beauty of it? This is CANON. Not EU canon, not Legends, not T-/C-/WTF-canon,

Simply, CANON.

RB’ing to point out that the “Grey Jedi Code” and “Green Jedi Code” stated in above posts are fanon, and that the “Emotions, yet Peace” version of the canon Code has not yet been stated to be the original Jedi Code in the new continuity, only an alternate version of it. Be careful when searching the internet or citing canon from multiple continuities – out there be monsters. ^ ^

By the way, I’d also like to point out that Mace Windu himself was a vigorously traditional Jedi, and while in his line Depa Billaba and Kanan Jarrus were indeed very unorthodox Knights, they did not pick up this trait from him – he firmly believed in the strict code of his Order and would have not approved of what he would likely have seen as dangerous behavior. 

In the new continuity, there had been only three recitations of the Jedi Code:

  • The “There is no ___ only ___” version recited by Obi-Wan in Dark Disciple, and
  • The “____ yet ____” version recited twice, once by Caleb Dume and once by Depa Billaba, in Kanan #7

Because New Canon has no explanation as to why these two Masters (Kenobi and Billaba) recited two different versions of the Jedi Code, we would have to dip into Legends to find out the “why”.

(Remember that “Legends” does not equate to “false”, but instead means “contains some truth, but not all of it are truth”. Which means that, barring an explicit contradiction from Canon, we can use the non-contradiction as a speculative/possible explanation of unexplained Canon facts.)

The Wookieepedia article for Jedi Code in Legends is quite succinct and direct to the point:

One of the key portions of the Code was a five-line mantra. Several
versions of the mantra exist, though the original version was:

Emotion, yet peace.
Ignorance, yet knowledge.
Passion, yet serenity.
Chaos, yet harmony.
Death, yet the Force.

(boldface from me)

the same article added immediately after that:

The refined version established by Odan-Urr and transcribed by Homonix Rectonia during the Early Manderon Period was perhaps the best known:

There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.

(There is no chaos, there is harmony.)
There is no death, there is the Force.

I’d say this is not “refining”, but outright corruption. While the Original version allows for the existence of things on the left column that need to be controlled by the right column, the “Refined” version denies the existence of things on the left column.

And we know that denying those things are unhealthy, it makes a living being stunted.

That’s why I don’t consider the second version to be “refined” but “corrupted” instead.

I would like to think to Mace as the kind of person that actually has unorthodox ways of thinking, but due to his position as the COO of the Jedi Order, Inc., he was bound by rules.

This has been bothering me

Why is everyone in episodes 4-7 constantly exclaiming ‘I thought the Jedi were a myth!!11!!’ when confronted with a Force-user? I mean, weren’t the Jedi a major part of galactic life and politics for centuries? Isn’t it well within living memory that the Jedi had a fricking council?

Does everyone in that galaxy far, far away lack object permanence or something? Poor Obi-Wan Kenobi leaves a room for a minute and when he comes back in everyone’s like ‘WHOOOOOA it’s a real Jedi! I thought they were a myth!’ And he’s like ‘goddamn it, this shit again, I need a drink.’

OH MAN I THINK ABOUT THIS A TON OKAY like here is my thing:

There were like… 10,000 Jedi Knights at the height of their strength. I don’t remember where I’m getting that number, but it’s super firm in my mind. Like, definitely correct me if I’m wrong, but honestly it doesn’t even matter if it’s 10,000 or 100,000, or even 10,000,000 – because we’re looking at a galaxy of (conservatively) trillions of people. I mean, thousands of fully populated worlds? Look at the size of the fucking senate chamber, and each of those dudes is representing hundreds of millions, if not billions of people.

This setting is very bad at conveying its sheer scale, and not only fucks it up frequently – i.e. the declared canon number of clone soldiers created is barely enough to fight a ten-year war here on Earth – but by necessity gives us a very skewed perspective. There’s no way that, in a galaxy that size, even a fraction of a percent of the populace have seen a Jedi. They’re a tiny, weird cult that for some reason wielded tremendous governmental influence. It’s like… a very vague equivalent would be if the UN employed three dudes with a Ouija board, gave them diplomatic immunity and a fancy all-expenses-paid hotel room, and took their advice seriously. Like maybe if you actually ran into one of them they’d be able to truly put you in touch with your great-great-great-grandmother, but on the other hand what the fuck is this bullshit.

So post-Order 66, I imagine it was actually pretty astonishingly easy for Palpatine to arrange enough propaganda that people got walked down from “the Jedi are a respectable thing” to “this weird cult betrayed the Republic and tried to assassinate me.” Also it very quickly became political poison to talk about the Jedi at all, ever, like seriously don’t, so “were they ever a thing at all?” becomes an actual legitimate question, particularly for younger people. 

Like even Vader’s powers are clearly mostly vague rumor for anyone not serving or looking to serve directly under him – “don’t try to frighten us with your sorcerer’s ways” is not a thing you just up and say to a dude you even kinda-sorta believe can crush the life out of you with his brain. And Motti was a fucking admiral, not some boob lieutenant fresh out of Academy. Again, the Imperial military is huge, and Vader’s one dude… he’s just the one of the main characters, so we see a lot of him.

So I think it’s believable, you just have to look at the setting from a wildly different point of view than what we’re given in the movies.

so you’re saying that “the jedi are a myth” thing is true… from a certain point of view?

Dude

They give you a lightsaber when you sign up

They hold tournaments

Like real serious tournaments with judges and crowds and prizes

You could train in this

You could make this a marketable skill and put this on your resume and when your interviewer asks if it’s a joke you can hand them a phone number to call, and then they’d verify that not only is it a real school but you studied lightsaber fighting extensively

Bruh

Brb going to italy for a few months

The need to be a Jedi master has never been stronger

There is one in Singapore called The Force Academy

it is my time

@restaurauranatuantuantn

Holy shit

I wonder if you can pick your colour

Seems like a much better system than kidnapping children and emotionally stunting them tbh

Holy shit that’s cool. And here; I found a video! 😀
