"Interesting. So Yoda and Obi-Wan realize that the Jedi code was only partially correct and that Qui-Gon's philosophy was correct also. Good stuff. I never thought of it like that" GL states in the Making of Episode I book that balence is a key issue throughout the saga and that the force itself breaks into two components which are the Living Force and the Cosmic Force..or also known amongst fandom as the Unifying Force. Where the Jedi out of touch with the force in the PT? I think the answer most would agree on is yes, but this includes Qui-Gon as well, he is just simply at the opposite end of the spectrum from the others, that doesn't make him anymore right or wrong then the others. The idea that Qui-Gon was somehow doing it the right way and the other Jedi were wrong in how they view the force flies directly in the face of what GL describes here. It was Luke's compassionate and unconditional love for Anakin/Vader that allowed him to come back from darkness and redeem himself. This is precisely the kind of love that the Jedi in the PT era teach despite how many people seem the believe that they don't have a clue as to what love is. Go back and watch AoTC during the Anakin/Padme refugee scene in which Anakin explains the Jedi's philosophy regarding love to Padme. The simple truth of the matter is that Anakin doesn't embrace this lesson. The kind of love the Jedi discourage is the selfish/possesive kind, that kind that can lead people to do bad things as Anakin does. I find it strange that the Jedi are being villified for living unselfish lives in servitude to others.
