Yoda, Obi-Wan and Anakin were all sith! In RotS (Episode 3), Obi-Wan tells Anakin that only the sith deal in absolutes. That is in and of itself an absolute statement. Making Obi-Wan a Sith. Yoda said Do or Do Not there is No try. That is also an absolute statement. Anakin, well we know he was a sith. And they all ended up into the Midichlorian afterlife. So is being a sith really that bad if it brings forth so much good and has a positive reward?


  1. Tongue in cheek? OK, I enjoyed it. Serious? If so, I'm going to call you on your premises David. First, that dealing in absolutes to any degree automatically makes one a Sith. Two, your premise is an either/or black or white fallacy that doesn't allow for gradations. Third, you attribute their end location and rewards to the mere fact of being Siths (a premise which is itself questionable, as noted).

    I still think it's better not to be a Sith.

  2. two sides of the same coin in my opinion. It's all in perspective. Each side has trouble seeing around the edge of the coin to understand and see the other fully.
