Anakin Skywalker’s journey to becoming Darth Vader didn’t happen overnight. Molded and shaped by external forces that amplified his latent dark inclinations, Anakin first killed in anger after the murder of his mother Shmi
After learning of his mother’s kidnapping, Anakin set out to find her, but Shmi died in his arms when he arrived too late. Filled with rage, Anakin infamously slaughtered the men "but the women and the children too." The moment proved to be a pivotal turning point in his fall to the Dark side.


Ok lets lay down some truth on you ****s.

Couple Religious fanatics and some Government officials were stranded on a planet and had no way off.
So they find a boy that has great potential and take advantage of him, giving him praise and telling him his risk and sacrifice will be worth it.
Then when this child that has been used and taken advantage of by everyone is taken into the order because he could be one of the best.

Here is the truth for you ****s, all they had to do after making it back to their planet is to send someone to buy his mother.
The one person that was kind to him without having an agenda.
Then after they have evaluated him and found his flaws, sent him off to be a normal person and let him live his own life.
But no, not the religious fanatics or his new government "friends" they only did what they need to keep him in line, keep him useful.

When at the end of the day a great evil could have been move in another direction by just doing the one decent human thing and rescuing his mother from the slavers.
He just saved your ass and the best you could do is indoctrinate him into something he didn't understand. Play on his past and how they treated him to push your own agenda.

Now I am not saying that the other side did anything better, in fact they played him even worse.
But the end of the day, the singe point in this story that no one seems to get. Every one ****ed this boy every chance they got. They used him and told him that his sacrifice would be worth it.
Pretended to be his friend and mentor but let him down, even when at the end when he was on fire and suffering you couldn't do the the right thing and end his suffering.

Well now you have to deal with what you made of him, he could have been the best, or he could have just went on about his life. He deserved better and you reap what you sow.
They turned a blind eye to his faults because they wanted to use his potential.

All you had to do you ****s is go save his mother, the one person that loved him, loved him enough to entrust his future to an organization that she herself had nothing but stories about.

There is no high ground in this story.
**** you that's why

I am now officially part of the Anakinist party.

We are talking about the Movies/books right.
Or is there some other agenda that this was used to push?

Button button who has a button?
My only point is to show how being nice to someone that has done you a solid is not a bad thing.
I have an entire new view of the story.

As a child I couldn't help but see myself in Luke, but as I grew older and my perspective grew I understood more of the story.
Anakin was ****ed by everyone around him, and if he couldn't have done anything for them they cast him aside.
He had no friends, his future was halted because of his background.
The most humane thing they could have done was leave him where he was and let him become a great pod racer and knock up Jenny and start a repair shop of his own.

He was used until there was nothing left but rage and had no outlet for it, they create the perfect storm and both sides took advantage of it.
Faced with evil on both sides what way should he go? He could not choose and snapped. Then his path was chosen for him, once again to be the pawn of the powers that be.

I am now officially part of the Anakinist party. Stop ****ing with me and just let me have my Jenny and build pod racers
The other choices are just bricks in a wall.

Actually, it's a piece of art.
Don't believe it?

Just look what was applied to it by some viewers right here.
And that's what art does; it makes you think.

No approval required.

Some people don't want the need to think. It's just so much "easier" to attach a label to anyone with a dissenting opinion... and then completely dismiss their words.

Whether it be through art, or through a more direct approach, there are unfortunately people whose minds are so set in stone, that they take it as a personal affront to be informed/reminded of another point of view. See it here on almost a daily basis.

So out of my entire post that is all you have?
I asked because I wasn't sure if you wanted to talk about Star Wars or something else.

As you didn't reply to my Star Wars comments I will assume it was something else.
In light of this information and prier comments and threads I will no reply to any more of your posts or threads.

Nope.
I saw the piece as a commentary on self-destruction.

You applying your wish of what YOU want it to mean doesn't make it true for ME.
And I should know, I posted it.

I would be concerned for your ability to understand that if it wasn't for the fact that I realize you're just grasping at straws to slam someone/something you don't even really care about.
Anyone with half-a-brain can see that.

Why all the effort?

What effort?

You make numerous posts per week that are disguised as being genuine... but many of them are purposely done to agitate people on here, but then you pretend like you're being targeted as a victim and have no idea why people are being mean.

This is 100% your M.O., and we both know this. It is uniquely you. I'd say the effort is all yours... how and why you concoct these scenarios is beyond me. It's somewhat sociopathic if you ask me. The rest of us, we're just responding to you... no effort on my part.
