How can Star Wars help us navigate current world affairs?

Author

The Star Wars Prequel Trilogy is a political satire about current and very real threats to Democracy which exist in our world. The Original Trilogy deals with empires, weapons of mass destruction, super-villains, and the power of ordinary people. George’s films have always been a guide for me in terms of how I see the world. I’ve always taken the lessons that I’ve learned from the films and applied them to my personal life. A belief in something larger than oneself, the dangers of fear, and the hope that a brighter future exists for all are just a few things which I know many others on this site have been profoundly impacted by. In these insane times, I’d like to hear some thoughts from you all about what you have learned from Star Wars. Perhaps your words may bring me or someone else some consolation. MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU.

Jump in an X-Wing and blow something up?

I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently.
