Why I Am A Star Wars Fan

Star Wars, yes, all 6 of them, will always remain my favourite film of all time.

Astro TV recently showed all 6 Star Wars films back to back. Superb!

While the film talks of a cosmic battle between good and evil, it actually speaks of how the Dark Side (Satan) easily tempts the official Do Gooders of the universe, the Jedi.

The Jedi must always stick to the Middle Path, because the Dark Side (Satan) will always seduce it.

The protagonist Annakin Skywalker was once the best of the Jedis but he became too arrogant and the Dark Side seduced him and turned him into Darth Vader, the evil Sith lord.

However, he eventually broke free from the Dark Side, with help from his only son Luke Skywalker (producer and director George Lucas' alter ego, really).

Darth Vader died a hero by saving the universe from Emperor (Lord) Palpatine, the wicked foster father who took him to the Dark Side.

He killed Palpatine, and died in the process, upholding the Jedi's true values of self-sacrifice for the protection and sanctity of universal life.

In the real world we have our own Jedi.

But this Jedi has become Darth Vader. It got seduced by Emperor Palpatine, who has become a spirit.

This Jedi has perverted its own values and turned its values into evil values.

The rest of the universe lives in fear of the once-good Jedi.

But there are many of us who are ass holes who ridicule and insult the Jedi and ask for death by light-sabre.

Those among us who care, should band together, like Han Solo, Chewbacca, R2D2 and C3PO.

We should collaborate, putting aside our minor differences first, to build up a force to save the Jedi and restore the true Jedi teachings.

This force should flesh out the good Jedi, the Luke Skywalkers and Obi Wan Kenobis, from the bad Jedi and destroy the bad Jedi.

The good Jedi will stand with us and recreate the true Jedi path.

Some of the muscular gangsters among us should be roped in to help our cause.

But we should be careful lest they go overboard and destroy the good Jedi as well.

We should screen these gangsters first, and pick only those who will not go overboard.
