The Jedi/Republic also caused General Grievous ( before he was a cyborg ) to get angry and turn to the dark side ( all though forcefully ) because if you look to General Grievous’s past he was about to win and go on the offensive against a threat that had attacked them for hundreds of generations for the first time, then the republic stepped in and forced his kind to stay put because the republic thought what they where doing was bad even though General Grievous’s kind had been slain and enslaved for generations. So basically the Republic caused General Grievous.

On Exegol, other Sith cultists had gathered to venerate the ancient Sith Order and swear fealty to the last Sith Lord, Sidious. These followers venerated his efforts to bring about a New Empire and labored to rebuild the Empire from Exegol as a true Sith Empire. To this end, Sidious' underlings crafted a vast armada of planet-killing warships, the Final Order. From the shadows, Sidious plotted his return to power, and forged the remnants of the Empire

The problem with this video is that the empire committed mass genocide after exploiting and entire race, aswell as enslaving the wookies and destoying their ancestral trees for resources they also allowed the trandotions(forgot how to spell it) to continue hunting the wookies for sport they also destroyed the lives of many people by taking their children without consent and forcing them to fight something the jedi didnt do because parents had the choice to give up their child. The empire also mined all the beskaar which destroyed mandalorian culture. So what im trying to say is that the empire was evil through and through and that the republic and jedi were not without their flaws which is the common theme of the clone wars show. Actually one of the other main points of yodas arc in the clone wars is that the jedi have lost their way and arnt the same. Also hutt space isnt controlled by the republic or empire so neither have a say in the slavery that happens there. Also the CIS were not the good guys because they were not long term, they didnt pay their interest rates and were puppets to distract the jedi. So in conclusion the empire were fascist, racist (if u could call it that because they only allowed humans into their ranks with some exceptions) and terrible.

Nice video! But we have a perfect example in real life. Spain had a civil war (like in Star Wars), we had a republic (very unstable) and we had franquism-fascism (basically the empire ruled by the military where Franco was the emperor Palpatine and the prime ministers where Darth Vader). My parents for instant justified the Franco's times it was peace, improve of the country economically speaking, infrastructures, order, etc... But there was a lack of freedom of speech and today we have democracy but we had for a lot of years rebels (ETA) and now separatist. In the US you don't have any idea of what this type of rule means and justified the empire since it is the best of the 3 but the price you pay for that is very high.

Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, was a democratically elected leader who did the best he could within a galaxy struck by war. However, the jedi sent one of their own to spy on him. Why? Because his religious beliefs were different from theirs, and tried to assassinate him. The jedi were the architects of their own destruction.

respectfully the empire used trillions of slaves, repressed all freedoms, speech and free press, right to protests and more. most people lived poorer and harsher lives under the empire, they would seize property and people no matter if the people didn't want to sell or give them up. they also relocated entire peoples by force. They exploited the natural resources of millions of planets turning them into uninhabitable wastelands. Kashyyyk is one of the best examples of this. The empire was also flagrantly racist the only officer of alien species to obtain a rank higher then Lieutenant was Grand Admiral Thrawn and that's only because of his personal relationship with the emperor. The empire also treated most people who were not human or very close to as second class citizens. regarding the second death star it was built by wookie slave labour. Not to say the Republic or the New Republic are a good system of government however during times of peace they were much better to live in.

Palpitine's Empire may be called an Empire, but it is run more like Soviet Russia. In the days of the Republic you could always find a party. Under the Empire party always finds you. They were the heros! The Republic was bad The Empire was worse. Both had lofty goals. Neither lived up to them. Also you pointed at the wrong Senators. Watch Star Wars Rebels! Also the Sequals were really badly written! Also those who sacrifice liberty for temporary security deserve neither and will loose both.

I’ve got some additional points to make in agreement and against. Firstly, for additional reading on how the Empire benefitted the lives of those in outer rim worlds, I highly recommend the book Lost Stars. Unlike legends, this one’s recent, so it’s actually canon, and it shows a girl from a poor ethnic group and a boy from the rich hill country and how their lives change as a result of the empire coming to their planet. Now, the Empire still turns out to be bad because it’s Star Wars, but it’s not without its merits. Also, your non canon points from the Tarkin book about poor governance over the galaxy are somewhat supported by The Clone Wars television program. In that show, we often see mercy missions fail and hear of people starving or living without electricity, running water, or open access to food during the war. Bear in mind that the key phrase there is “during the war,” because if you look at what life was like in the republic before, such as life on tattooine during the phantom menace, you yourself said it’s not that bad. For most people, that is. Because the Republic had no standing army and the Jedi were the only peacekeepers, slavery was not allowed, but the arm of the republic law could not reach all the way to Tattooine. So there we see that the republic does not extend to the outer rim as it should, but it also does not appear to be nearly as scummy or villainous as we see outer rim worlds in the Mandalorian. Things weren’t perfect, but they were somewhat libertarian. Depending on your worldview, it might not be the republic’s job to provide the necessities to people, especially if they can be accessed on their own planets. Now yes, there is a conflict by the trade federation in episode one, because the trade federation was seeking to control Naboo, but the conflict was able to be stopped. In Attack of the Clones, however, Obi Wan is captured while trespassing, then Anakin and Padme are arrested while doing the same, and the Republic’s response is to start a war? What’s the change here? Yes, the Confederation of Independent Systems was building an army to prepare for war, but why were they doing so? Because Sidious was influencing them to do so through Dooku. And who was not chancellor in Episode 1 but is now chancellor in episode 2, when the Clone War begins? Sidious. So the CIS just wanted to leave the republic, because the republic was a more limited government before the war, and the CIS represented mostly outer rim systems, which clearly wanted a more involved government. But with Sidious at the helm, that wasn’t going to happen. Rather than letting the systems leave peaceably and focusing on ruling those systems which desired to remain in the republic, Sidious orchestrates a manufactured conflict for his own gain. It is only during the war that inner rim worlds cease being provided for, and that corruption spreads. Many of the most corrupt senators, by the way, are those who profit from the war, as seen in the clone wars! I make this point to say that yes, the empire is better for MOST of its citizens(if you forget to mention that the Wookiees get enslaved along with several other races), but only when compared to during the clone war. A war manufactured by the future leader of the empire for the sole purpose of making the republic unstable enough to crumble and give people a reason to put their faith in him. But hey, that’s JUST a theory, a FILM theory. Thanks for reading my comment.

It’s actually kinda odd thinking about the Star Wars universe now. The Jedi r supposed to be ruled by pure reason (even cold reason) while the Sith r ruled by their emotions. U would think that the Jedi would favor a more authoritarian form of government if it was shown to be more efficient while the Sith being ruled by emotion should favor their freedoms because ppl don’t like to be ruled over. This is coming from a libertarian btw so no apologies for fascist governments

I think Matt can be kind of a brainlet at times but I agree 100% with this theory. The Jedi *ARE* religious fascists, think about it; they are *OBSESSED* with the complete and utter annihilation of a rival religious order and its practitioners, the Sith, for purely ideological reasons, specifically since the Sith believe that a total lack of personal attachment and suppression of one's emotions is unhealthy, because it is. To compound that the Jedi forbid ANY study of the so-called "Dark Side" of the Force because they *KNOW* that it threatens their hegemony and religious control of the galaxy, because those who control information, control (the perceived)reality

Not a very good theory. Matpat ignored most major atrocities committed by the empire. These include the Geonosian Genocide (100 Billion were killed, and only 1 Geonosian survived), the enslavement of almost the entire Wookiee species (Wookiee’s were worked to death, forcibly bred for medical experiments, and had inhibitor chips placed inside them to control them). There is also Operation Cinder, where the empire deliberately destroyed many of its worlds after the death of the Emperor.
