Crossing fandom streams, it occurs to me that the PT-era Jedi are basically the Slovakia Accords of the GFFA. Think about it. Force sensitives, like superheroes, are basically a strategic military resources. Even an untrained Force sensitive can see the future, sense emotions, and dodge blaster bolts. A fully-trained Force user can do all that only better plus dead lift a space ship, put thoughts into people’s heads, shoot lightening bolts, and a range of other powers as the plot requires. Yes, Force sensitives are people, but, as far as the government is concerned, they are living weapons who present a clear and present threat to institutional power. Just look at all the damage Luke, Kanan, and Ezra were able to do in opposition to the Imperial government. Is it any wonder the Jedi and the Republic wanted Force sensitives either dead, ignorant of their powers, or working for them? Is it any wonder in Bloodline that
talks about an unsupervised Luke Skywalker the way someone would talk about a loose nuke? Better to have them working for the state than pursuing their own agenda or, worse, somebody else’s.
Lets say there is a raging fire behind all the Trump/Russia news. What would be the outcome. Would they just impeach him and Pence would become president. Which would be as scary if not more then Trump remaining in office. Is it possible to have a special election if it does turn out Trump and his team worked with Russia to rig the election.
