Only a Sith Thinks in Absolutes

The poor moral reasoning of Star Wars is actually quite amusing. I found this on the net yesterday:

Here is a good interview (in mp3 format) regarding the poor reasoning found in moral relativism.

Here is a great, old article from Terry Mattingly about the confusing moral advice given by Jedis.
No wonder Anakin Skywalker seems so confused.

Every time the Jedi apprentice turns around, a spiritual master tells him to trust his feelings, search his feelings or follow his feelings. Trouble is, the young super-warrior in "Star Wars: Attack of the Clones" is a tornado of feelings. He feels love. He feels hate, ambition, desire, frustration, fear and fury.

Yet when he follows his heart, the Jedi tell him to set aside his desires and do his duty.

Well, do feelings trump duty or is it the other way around?
