    We all remember the famous "Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering." line in TPM. In AOTC, we see Anakin feared for his mother. Then, Shmi's death made him angry and he whooped some Tusken butt. Then, in the confession scene he says he hates the Tusken Raiders. Then, he breaks down and begins to cry, which is suffering.

    Has anyone else noticed this? It definately gives more meaning to that line.

    yeah, i think we see anakin going down the road to to the darkside in the prequels. fear in tpm and aotc, anger (and perhaps hatred) in aotc, and of course, suffering (and i think more hatred) in episode 3...

    I just watched TPM and AOTC back to back today and had the same thought.

    You noticed that already?!

    It works that way in the OT too: Luke is afraid to confront Vader, but when he does, he gets angry for what he thinks Vader did. He then puts hatred in charge of the situation, which causes him to suffer when his hand is chopped off and he realizes the truth.

    Yoda knew what he was talking about.

    I was thinking the same exact thing while watching AOTC about a month ago.

    So what do you think kept Luke from turning to the dark side? Was it that he conquered his fears?

    I think that this is just to emphasise the words of the Jedi further, to show that the Jedi have grasped the concept behind human suffering, and how it is played out in real life.

    Yes, Yoda sees all Yoda knows all


    I think this belongs in the AotC board...

    Good observation indeed. But there are many more instances where Yoda's quote works. Of course, the most obvious in regards to the Republic in general is this:

    Fear: of the Separatists and war
    Anger: over political issues and lack of action
    Hate: Clone War
    Suffering: when the Empire is born
