    With the return of The Mandalorian season 2 to Disney+, I felt it was about time to also return to a Star Wars theory. In a previous theory, I talked about how the Jedi could be construed as an 'evil' order. Today, I'm taking that kind of idea and flipping it to talk about the Empire itself! I think The Mandalorian provides us with even more clues that the Empire may not be as wrong in it's philosophy as we thought! How? Why? Well Theorists, make sure you Baby Yoda is somewhere safe because this is about to take a turn to the dark side...
    0:38 - This is referencing two different studies citing two different percentages. It is not between 31% and 58%, it is both 31% and 58% percent results from the two studies.

Fun fact: politicians pushing an agenda do not always tell the full truth. Case in point, what were the differences in Tatooine between the first time Padme arrived and just before Jabba's death? Also heavy authoritarian regimes tend to make local self-governance difficult once the regime falls (and they always fall). Those that are capable of leading locally either take their cue from the higher ups (like the moffs) or they are removed from the scene so unable to keep things orderly and improve.

They used slavery to build the first Death Star why wouldn’t they use it for the second Death Star. Imperials designed it and the geonosians were forced to work on it alongside imperial workers

I wanna point out that the only goal the sith had was to wipe out the jedi, having achieved that all he was left with was the desire to rule, of course he would do so effeciently, the sith dont believe in material wealth so no need to hord it, and he was hyper intelligent and has been a lifelong politician so he saw all aspects of the empire, of course he would know exactly how to rule without being held back

I ask the question: do they even need a big government?, I mean, that’s why we have countries: different people with different interests in located landmass that are locally ruled, I mean, the galaxy is so big, that it’s very probable that if you divide it by chunks, big enough so every chunk contains all kinds of resources, with trading being optional, that could work, unless the galaxy is old enough so the heaviest elements are down to the core, but that doesn’t make sense since the outer rim is what is exploited, and not the core.

dumping on the jedi for doing the same things as the sith, and then praising the sith for the same reason, is a flawed assessment. that's why grey jedis exist, coz even they are aware of the flaws of such a partisan mentality.

Patrick, you must understand that the Empire did not care about order, but about power. The fact is that even if the Republic, Jedi, whatever, had their own problems, they were not inherently evil and actually wanted to help people. The Empire only wanted to help themselves. And by the way, the destruction of Alderaan drove hundreds and hundreds of people to join the Rebellion, because this own act spelled out the Empire's true intentions pretty clearly to them.

I swear I comment after almost every viewing. The destruction of Alderaan wasn't a decision of the Empire, or even the Emperor, just Tarkin. The emperor gave Tarkin authorization to destroy a planet, but one nobody cared about, not Alderaan. That kind of justifies Alderaan, the gunners would be punished for not firing, and everything was Tarkin's fault. It's EU, but I don't care, it is my head canon.

I think the reason at first they denied Annikan training was because younger kids are more impressionable and it would of been harder to make him you know stay and never betray the jedi. It would also be easier to manipulate and trick these children.

I'm sorry, but I've got to call you on part of your argument: if you're assisting in the construction of a planetary doomsday weapon, then you aren't an "innocent bystander" anymore. I'm in the military. My job is to measure stuff. That's literally all I do; I just measure stuff. I don't even have a gun. Even so, I live on a military base, and if that base got bombed, no one would say that I was an unfortunate innocent bystander because I just measured stuff; they would say that I was working for the military on a military installation and that's all there is to it. The fact holds true for the independent contractors that work on this base too. I'm calling bull on that point; any contractors caught up in the destruction of the second Death Star--though I wouldn't go so far to say they deserved it--were casualties of a war that they chose to assist in and are therefore not innocent civilian casualties. Alderaan is a different case entirely, where the vast majority of the population probably didn't have anything to do with the rebellion at all and were just living their civilian lives as farmers, bankers, entertainers and all those other innocent civilian-sphere jobs that come from living on a planet rather than a military space station. This part of the argument in the Empire's defense, I hereby debunk.

Wait, wait, wait. Doesn't this remind you of how Rome turned out? Started as a republic, that was cruel and wrong, then turned to an empire, which was better but was overthrown and toppled partially for RELIGIOUS REASONS. What makes the sith so bad again? And why is the republic against a certain point of view, or might I say, certain religion. Just something to think about.

Be careful measuring a revolution's worth so soon afterwards....... that is like saying, because there was chaos after the Civil War that it was wrong to abolish slavery....there will always be chaos and death after a revolution, because the thing being challenged had become the status quo, and whomever runs the status quo can hide their crimes/kills way easier. Not to mention, like in the case of slavery, was viewed differently before and after...... So, yeah, definitely CANNOT judge the empire as good just because the killing wasn't as "broadcast" prior to the revolution.
