What is a Jedi? A Jedi is a Zen Buddhist, often studied to duplicate, in many faiths of matter (reference the Zenny Manifesto, on this site). But to be a Zen Buddhist, you have to convert to Zazen, a Lotus (Zen), Warrior (Budo), Tao (Assassin), Dao (Spy), Sunni (Pugilist), or Shi’ite (Runner), all of these possible in different forms from Zazen being practiced before age 10.
Regardless of what George Lucas intended, this is our form, from his observation.
So what is the Dark Side? The Sith, the powers of Empire, the Republican Party?
You have four forms, each of them improper, unless each is broken, one after the other, admitting the Dark Side.
Nietzschean (Jewish): A larger force that is superior, is to be avoided.
Utilitarian (Arabic): A potential plan to make others happy, is to be practiced as if majority.
Kantian (Nazi): A rule must be created, to follow all things, from the father, then broken.
Deist (Christian): Nobody may touch you, besides yourself, unless you seek to breach them with a blow.
Having attained these things, you will be a Sith.
The Sith’s real name, is a Freemason. God Help the Republic.
