Love doesn’t lead to the Dark side. Passion can lead to rage and fear, and can be controlled… But passion is not the same thing as love. Controlling your passions while being in love, that’s what they should teach you to beware. But love itself will save you…not condemn you.
OK forgive me for posting this quote again but I can’t believe I live in a world where one of the heroes in a blockbuster - THE FACE OF THE GODDAMNED REBEL ALLIANCE - is a Space Latino from a mineral extraction planet, where he joined an anti-colonialist insurgency after his father was killed at a protest:
“Andor grew up in the wilds of the Outer Rim and came of age fighting against the Republic during the tumultuous Clone Wars. His father was killed at the Carida military academy during a protest against the expansion of Republic militarism. Though not a formal Separatist, Andor became part of a confederacy-backed insurrectionist cell at a young age, tossing rocks and bottles at Republic walkers and clone soldiers…in the time of the Empire, Andor was drawn into anarchist movements that continued to defy Imperial edicts.”
