I've been wondering if viewing the Light side vs. Dark side, as strictly a good vs. evil thing is too concrete. It sometimes appears as if the only-moral dilemma or decision a force-sensitive has to face is if he or she is to use the force in a calm and detached way, or, in an angry and attached way. No grey area, just black or white, heads or tails. After the decision is made, the detached, calm person is somewhat of a saint, incapable of doing anything truly evil or malicious unless they fully "flip" sides. Vice versa, the attached, angry person is automatically condemned to be a black-hearted murderer and or calculating schemer for the rest of his or her existence. This is unless of course, he or she has a complete 360-degree epiphany and stops becoming angry or attached. Good people with good intentions make bad choices and do bad things. Bad people, or, people who lose control of themselves, can make good choices and become good or controlled people without becoming "saints" or being transformed completely. It's not based completely on if we let anger and fear influence how we act. We don't have to "lose control" to commit evil, and "saying under control" does not prevent us from making bad choices that harm ourselves and others. Some of the worst evil has been committed by people with the best, calm intentions to do "good." A person is not evil because he twirls his mustache and laughs an evil laugh. He is evil because he let his view of what is "good" become twisted by things such as over self-importance, poor self-control, outside influence, and utter disregard for other human life and suffering. The best example of this quandary in the Saga would be Count Dooku. Yes, Dooku killed people and started a war. However, his motives and justifications behind these murders and this war were to create a new Republic. This new government would contain perhaps more freedom and probably less corruption for millions of citizens living in the Republic so, were his actions really good or evil? Well, instead of allowing us to make this judgment, Dooku is labeled with a big fat "bad guy" title by having him "fall" or "flip" to the "dark" and "evil" side of the proverbial coin. This image is complete with a red lightsaber and force lightning. None of this "evil" image mind you, actually involves any of Dooku's actions or motives. Sometimes I wish Star Wars allowed "good'' characters to make truly bad choices while still striving to be good people. Or, "bad" characters really explain why they thought their actions were "good" without outside interferences deciding who is the hero and who is the villain for us. Everyday, we struggle with what is "good" and what is "bad". How do we know what is really right from wrong? That is a tough question. Unfortunately for us, people don't carry lightsabers around, color coded perfectly so we can clearly see if they belong to a "bad guy" or a "good guy." No, That difficult choice is one we have to decide for ourselves based on our own viewpoint and experience. It is rarely centered entirely in either end of the spectrum or on one side of the coin.
