The Republic was crumbling, the Senate was corrupt. The Jedi Order was tied to this dying republic that shouldnt have been protected. Chancellor Palpatine wanted to bring peace and order to the galaxy, nothing more. If the Senate and Jedi could not bring peace to the galaxy, then shouldn't someone else have an oppertunity? The arrogant Jedi would always think that they could do the best job, but at the time, wasn't the answer someone else? The Sith and Jedi could never coexist and the republic was not a functional political system. Was Sidious Right In Destroying The Jedi Order And The Republic?
