Fine point. I’m not inclined to have to have every single thing shown. And a troubled boy with baggage who reads too deeply into dogma is not unprecedented in history. It doesn’t need to be Jedi dogma exclusively that corrupts Ben. I prefer my Star Wars to be broad stroke myth rather than over-explained EU nonsense.Gaith said:Moe_Syzlak said:there’s no doubt in my mind that the intent was to have Luke (and Yoda) acknowledge that the dogma of the Jedi needed to end.
Sure, but the problem is we never saw to what extent Luke tried to incorporate PT-era dogma into his temple, if at all. And surely not all dogma - such as the general frowning upon mass murder on a planetary scale - is worth discarding? Or are we to assume that Luke drove Kylo to the Dark Side by imposing a vow of celibacy on him?
And is opposition to genocide generally considered dogma?! Does one have to be an adherent to a religious dogma to find that abhorrent?
