Use The Force to get an F

1 Aug

Let us be clear. Star Wars is not science fiction, not a fictional work based on science. It is a fairy tale, a fantasy story. That it is based in space does not make it more real.

Use The Force to get an F

I’m sure if you would try to write an essay on The Force in Science Class you would be rewarded with an F. The Force stands for failure. It brought Anakin Skywalker nothing but grief. Lord Helmet, oh sorry, Darth Vader was a big failure. You cannot command people with fear and threat, however powerful you are.

But then, the people in Star Wars aren’t people, because they live long ago in a galaxy far away. Human beings live on Earth not in the Star Wars universe. To give them human emotions is just as unfair as giving human feelings to our pets. More unfair even, because the creatures in the Star Wars universe aren’t even related to life on Earth. We have more in common with an earth worm than with a humanoid in the Star Wars universe.

In fact, why do we care? Those creatures aren’t even human and are devoid of human thought, emotions and motivation.

Star Wars makes no sense whatsoever. It is a fun series to watch though, as a piece of fiction, that is. Some people take it far too serious, as if it could really happen. Yeah, when pigs fly.

That is all.
