“I hate the empire but there is nothing I can do about it”, said young Luke Skywalker as he felt the pessimism of realizing that one person can’t possibly defeat something as large and powerful as the evil galactic empire. I suppose that is how we all feel at times when dealing with our own empire known as the federal government. The villains of our story has spent years building up an indestructible bureaucracy that no one person can defeat. This was what Luke Skywalker realized and was content to live under the empire’s rule and it is probably what a lot of us seem to think at times especially with the passage of the health care bill.
Life imitates art because it embodies our hopes and dreams which is why the most popular artistic creations always allows people to express what they are thinking. This must explain why Star Wars has been one of the most popular movies of all time because it is a story about people oppressed by a powerful government. This piece of art must have tapped into a feeling that we have which is that there is some kind of evil empire trying to take over our lives.Details
