Yoda Speaks To Steve Bannon
By D. S. Mitchell
It’s been a long time since I took my young son, and stood in a very long line to see the first “Star Wars” movie, in 1977. After, seeing it, I had to admit the movie did a good job of promoting solid basic values. I never thought, writing a political blog, would bring me back to that great movie series that has kept entertaining, educating and captivating young people for 4 decades.
There’s a lot going on in U.S. politics and today rather than do a political analysis of the current events cycle I am going to let Yoda speak quietly to Steve Bannon and let his wisdom be my political comment of the day.
You know, that weird-looking guy you see schlumping around in the background at Trump functions? The one that looks like he slept in the subway. You know who I mean? The guy that’s the real president of the United States. Anyway, President Bannon, told the NY Times that he likens himself to the “dark force of Star Wars”. In fact, “all my friends call me Darth. Darkness is good. Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power.”
Yoda, warns Bannon is wrong, very, very wrong. The legendary Jedi Master, from the movie series is very wise and extremely powerful. He is small but stronger than most due to his intense connection to the Force. He trained Jedi Knight for over 800 years, and unlocked the path to immortality.
His message to Steve Bannon is, “No, no, no. Quicker, easier, more seductive, but not stronger. Fear is the path to the dark side…fear leads to anger…anger leads to hate…hate leads to suffering.”
