Finally! Someone has taken it upon himself to defend the Empire against the ridiculous propaganda of George Lucas. The world can finally see the Rebellion for what it really is: just a confederacy of spoiled princesses and common criminals. See here.

Hayes also manages to touch on a issue that a friend and I were discussing recently. Why is it that shooting lightning out of your fingers is evil while using Jedi mind tricks isn’t. While frying someone with your fingertips is really quite rude, it is hardly any worse than chopping someone’s limbs off with a lightsaber. Subverting someone’s free will is quite a violation. Having that kind of power over people would be more corrupting than the lightning (even though the lightning is pretty cool).

Search your feelings … you know it to be true.
