A Few Corrections

I just saw Revenge of the Sith again tonight (some friends came into town who hadn't seen it yet ;) ), and I noticed that in my previous post I got a couple of the lines wrong.

1.) When Obi Wan asks Anakin: "Can't you see that Palpatine is evil? Anakin replies, "The Jedi Council is evil from my point of view." Obi Wan then replies that if Anakin really thinks that way, then he is surely lost.

2.) It's "Only a Sith deals in absolutes." Why is that so hard to pin down?

There is also more evidence that the Sith are the relativists: Palpatine tells Anakin that there isn't really much difference between the Sith and the Jedi, that they are both after power. Anakin replies that the Jedi are selfless, and use the Force only to help others. Palpatine is not fazed. "Good is a point of view," he says, or something like that. The Empire is most definitely an Empire of Lies. Dare I say it? It is a dictatorship of relativism.
