It is pretty well agreed on that Anakin Skywalker was the Chose One to bring balance to the Force. However, when did he balance it? According to the Jedi, any existence of the Dark Side "corrupted" the Force causing it to be unbalanced. This would support the theory that Anakin only balanced the Force when he was redeemed and killed Darth Sidious, and that the Jedi Purge was unneeded. However, there are many who consider the Light and Dark sides of the Force as two equal sides of a coin. With this viewpoint, the Jedi purge would be necessary in order for usage of the Light and Dark sides of the Force to be equal and "balanced." Some think, that both events were in-fact needed to bring balance the Force. What do you think?
