The last chapter in the ROTS novel is titled "A New Jedi Order". In the chapter, Yoda communicates to Qui-Gon Jinn, and they speak of the evolving and changing of the Order. When Yoda was battling Sidious, he suddenly discovered the true strength and weakness of the Sith. The Sith had studied the strengths and weaknesses of the Jedi for the last millenia, and through their studies they changed and evolved the Sith Order in such a way that they were finally prepared to attack the Jedi. The Jedi, however, hadn't changed at all. They trained themselves as the Jedi of old had. The Jedi from hundreds of years ago. The Jedi from another time. The Jedi Order was wrapped up in its old ways, and hadn't adapted to the changing climate. The Jedi were fighting the way they had during the last Sith War. This was the strength of the Sith. The Sith would use their new knowledge to crush the Jedi Order right under their noses. The Sith would use "war" itself as a tool against the Jedi. If the Jedi fought the war that the Sith designed, then the Sith would win, since "war" had become a tool of the dark. The Jedi would have to change their ways if they were to have any hope of destroying the Sith. Yoda admits this to himself. They would have to battle the Sith in a different way. They would have to let the Force take control of the situation. My questions are: What exactly do Yoda and Qui-Gon mean when they speak of the changing of the Jedi Order? What changes does the Order have to perform to adapt to the changing times? Do they have to become more conservative in their traditions, or more liberal? If so, what impact would this have on the Order? Also, does Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy fulfill the changes that Yoda had wished for? If so, what changes were made?
