After seeing all six films many, many times, I've come to realize some of their principles were really distorted. This is probably most evident at two points in Episode III: Yoda counseling Anakin on his visions, and Obi-Wan's response to Vader's ultimatum on Mustafar. In the first example, Yoda tells Anakin not to mourn the deaths of those he loves, or even miss them at all. He even insist that Anakin should train himself to detach from everything and everyone he's afraid of losing. Such ideas don't work because grief is a necessary part of life, and demanding detachment only results in people suppressing what their deepest emotions. I never understood why Lucas drafted this ideology, for a group that's supposed to be protecting people across the board. It reminds me of the alien Elders from the "Green Lantern" movie, who were so afraid of even admitting their fears they were almost destroyed by one of their own. As I've noted before, the second scene's also extremely problematic. I understand Lucas envisioned Anakin as a reversed Christ figure, so the "with or against me" line's appropriate. However, Kenobi's response about moral absolutes defeats itself. The Jedi were completely determined to eradicate the Sith, because their desire for power at any cost made them a huge threat...but strong emotions don't always lead to disaster. That's why I love the scene Matthew Stover included in the "Revenge of the Sith" novel, where Yoda meditates on the decisions he personally made, which kept the Jedi stagnant instead of letting them grow. At one point, he mentions having trained Padawans to be like the old Masters from centuries ago, not realizing new problems (including the reborn Sith) required a very different approach. Yoda remarks, "Change the Jedi Order did not, because let it change I did not." What do all of you think?
