Do you think that the Sith realize how evil they truly are, or is Sith culture so different that they think what they are doing is right and what the Jedi do is evil (Anakin - "From my point of view, the Jedi are evil!") ? I could buy that line of thought from Anakin, but not from Sidious. Some Earthly examples: The Korowai tribe in Papau practices cannibalism and think nothing of it, yet the rest of the world thinks the custom is repugnant and evil. Some Australasian tribes practice pederasty as an initiation rite and think nothing of it, yet the rest of the world thinks the custom is repugnant and evil. Osama Bin-Laden is responsible for thousands of deaths, but thinks he is protecting Islam from western aggression. Hitler is responsible for the killing of 6 million Jews, but thought he was protecting "das Vaterland" from the "Untermensch". Etc., etc. All those listed above were culturally ingrained to believe in the actions they took, which most of the world believes to be evil. So, at what point do the Sith know that they are evil? Personally, I think that Sidious knows exactly how evil he is. He cared only about power, and would do anything and kill anybody to get that power. I can't say the same about Anakin, Maul or Dooku. I think Maul was trained since birth that although the rest of the Republic believes differently, the way of the Sith is the true and correct path; he's culturally ingrained to believe in the Sith. His faith in the Sith is no different from a Padawan's faith in the Jedi. I believe Anakin and Dooku know what they are doing is wrong, but see it as a way to accomplish a greater good. They feel they have to do a few necessary evils to fix what's wrong in the galaxy, and if it means allying themselves with Sidious, so be it. They both feel that they are using him, and plan on disposing him once when he's no longer useful. Your thoughts?
