Ha! LOL

"I wish we could all just get along," said one of the mourners. "But 
it's hard to offer an olive branch to a cult of religious fanatics 
whose main tool is violence and who insist on calling us the Dark 
Side."

&gt; &gt;&quot;In all of the time we spend observing the Rebel
Alliance, we never hear<br>
&gt; &gt;of their governing strategy or their plans for a
post-Imperial universe.<br>
&gt; &gt;All we see are plots and fighting. Their victory over the
Empire doesn't<br>
&gt; &gt;liberate the galaxy--it turns the galaxy into Somalia writ
large:<br>
&gt; &gt;dominated by local warlords who are answerable to no one.
Which makes the<br>
&gt; &gt;rebels--Lucas's heroes--an unimpressive crew of anarchic
royals who wreck<br>
&gt; &gt;the galaxy so that Princess Leia can have her tiara back.
I'll take the<br>
&gt; &gt;Empire.&quot;<br>
