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…
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.
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.
