The Case for the Empire

Jonathan V. Last, The Weekly Standard: The Case for the Empire

Jonathan argues that The Empire are the good guys and the Rebels and Jedi are the bad guys.

If you think order is more important that freedom and liberty, I can see how you might think that. And since the real world has been happily trading in its freedom and liberty for order and "security" over the last 8 months, and Imperialistic superpowers have been flexing their muscles cheered on in a Starship-Troopers'esque public display on TV, I can see how someone could possibly lull themselves into believing The Empire was righteous.

But not me.
