  1. too much reading. I lost my motivation.

  2. This would be “funnier” (which is a relative term when it comes to beating the dead horse that is motivational poster parodies) if it just said:

    “Try not to think of the thousands of crew members you’re about to kill…just keep doing what the voices tell you to.”

    Shorter is better.

  3. For being the good guys, the Rebels did killed an assload of people…

  4. thats fucking terrorist for you!

  5. The Rebels really had it wrong, you know. While the Empire was superficially totalitarian, it was actually a surprisingly direct governance system — one that would very likely have slid into representative government in just a few generations — and overall provided a clearly superb technology and peacekeeping structure. It had far more in common with Rome than most people seem to recognize.

    The Rebels, on the other hand, dealt with Received Truth rather than empirical process for discovery; had inferior technology and were probably considerably more prone to diseases (most of the time they lived in vine-encrusted ancient monoliths, mud huts, etc.) and didn’t even believe in democratic principles; their ruling caste were not conventional beings but were instead “divinely” (or midi-chlorianically) ordained entities whose value lay not in individually-achieved merit, but accident of birth.

    Luke killed thousands and thousands to help his girlfriend-sister get her fuckin’ Prom Queen crown back. How very noble.

    Besides, the Empire had much cooler ships.

  6. David Brin has written a few articles about how the “good guys” in Star Wars are actually anti-democratic.

  7. Be sure to read Point #5 in the first article. Brin comes up with a theory that Yoda and the Emperor were both villains and Darth Vader was a double agent who was helping Luke & company the whole time. It almost makes Star Wars make sense.

  8. Remember in the remake of Episode 6 (whuhh), that in Coruscant they started to lynch a Stormtrooper? After the fall of the Empire, I bet the hunted down everyone whom served in the army, and systematicly shoot them in the head. Yeah, good start for the New Republic.

    That’s a Popular Republic for you, comrade.

  10. @reboot:

    Yeah, Brin’s arguments were what I was thinking of, but I didn’t think to add a link to them.

  11. Also, (getting back to the subject of the funny pic) never mind that you’re about to make a 75-mile-in-diameter space station go Ka-Boom
