Our fate

Posted: March 10, 2017 in Uncategorized

The film was titled, “Episode III; Revenge of the Sith”, the film was the third one in the Star Wars anthology.  In the beginning of the film our hero Anakin Skywalker with his mentor Obi Wan Kenobi, enters an enemies space craft and rescue their leader. Prior to the leaders rescue Anakins mentor is hurt and cannot continue to move. Anakin picks up his master and proceeds to escape from the ship, that is now crashing. The leader tells Anakin to leave Obi Wan behind. Anakin stops and tells the leader that, “his fate will be the same as ours.” This quote is the same quote from a later movie in the anthology. Later in the story arc the phrase is spoke concerning the fate of the heroes father.

I love Star Wars and the philosophy behind this quote. We live in a time when income inequality is at an all time high and I cannot help but wonder, would income inequality be as high if we all adhered to the same philosophy as Anakin Skywalker in Episode III? What if each of us decided that, our fate would be the same as our neighbors?  Would we be more of an advocate and less of an adversary?  I like to think so, but there is only one way to know.
