The Jedi serve the government, but were not compassionate, as we see in TPM the boundaries of the Republic are the boundaries of the Jedi's influence. The Outer Rim is forgotten by the Senate and the Republic, they even ignored the Naboo crisis, and corporations have become a part of the government. That is how Count Dooku so easily starts the Confederacy in AOTC, because the outer rim planets that join it are planets like Tattoine that are ignored by the Republic and the Jedi, and the spoiled corporations that want even more wealth, like the Trade Federation. The Jedi should have never become part of the corrupt government, which became corrupt when corporations started to join the Senate and become equal in political power to planets. That is how the Sith destroy the Old Republic, and the Jedi, by taking advantage of this corrupt system. The Jedi obey the Senate, so they only work within the borders of the Republic. And the Senate is controlled by the corporations, who have been given equal staus as planets and want even more power. When Count Dooku unites the greedy corporations with the ignored planets he creates a great crisis which rips the galaxy apart, and allows Sidious to destroy the corporations, and disable the Senate, all because of the war, sacrificing freedom for security. So all sides, the corporations, the ignored planets, the Senate, and the Jedi, lose. And this happened for two reasons, two imbalances of power: 1.) The Jedi limited freedom and justice to political borders and serving the Senate 2.) The Senate allowed the greedy desires of powerful corpoartions to stand equal with the needs of the people Palpatine only learned the system and its flaws, and took advantage of it with the help of the Dark Side. Do you agree?
