The Sith! Galactic Bad Boys, or Universal Counter Weight?

Long before the Galactic Civil War and the events of both trilogies of the Star Wars films the Sith have held a looming presents over the galaxy. But is their existence and use of the dark side a purely evil one? There are many people and strong opinions on both sides of this controversial issue. Now this lone blog will try and tackle both sides of the issue and provide you a clear and concise argument as to just what should be done with these Dark Jedi.

Evil?

The Sith have a long reputation as being the eternal antagonists of the galaxy. This perception is largely due to the repeated genocide they have repeatedly brought upon worlds. Beginning with the enslavement of the natives of Koriban to the much more publicized destruction of Alderan with the Death Star I. Another major drawback to the Sith is there persistent need for conquest and domination. Which has resulted in at least three Galactic wars to date. Lastly the Sith in and among themselves have a nasty habit of killing each other. After the Rule Of Two was set down by Darth Bane at least 70% of Sith Lords have been killed by their apprentices or have killed their apprentices before they had the chance to turn on there masters.

Misunderstood?

Thought out the course of human history the greatest advancements in technology and economy even religious advancement has all stemmed form conflict. In that sense couldn’t the repeated cause of conflict take some credit for those advancements made? furthermore after every conflict the Sith have caused has been fallowed by a time of great peace and prosperity. Often times the Sith are a unifying force bringing together sect’s of the galaxy that are otherwise unreconcilable. The Sith also pride themselves on drawing their power from their passions and desires. Isn’t that the best inspiration for art and expression?

“Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is essential to a Jedi’s life. So you might say, that we are encouraged to love.”  – Anikin Skywalker

In the grand scheme of things weather you think of them as evil or just misunderstood is ere levant. Even with the Sith haven been wiped from the galaxy people and especially Jedi have fallen to the dark side. I however don’t think this is a bad thing. The Sith embody love and passion. And with out these things we would have no music or art in the galaxy. Sure they’ve have there brushes with mass murder but who hasn’t? Even the Archetype good guys have killed millions of innocent people every now and again. The U.S dropped Nuclear bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima and the rebels blew up two Death Stars resulting in the deaths of countless Stromtroopers and space contractors. In the end we all have a little bit of the Dark Side of the force so i say embrace it!!
