Anakin Screwed Anakin

Man all you do is whine angry fan. Sometimes, it’s like you’re like Anakin yourself. He’s just as whiny in the movies as you are. The Jedi screwed Anakin. Obi Wan screwed Anakin. Mace Windu screwed Anakin. Blah blah blah blah blah.

You know what? Anakin is the reason he is in the position he’s in. The “Chosen One” allowed himself to be manipulated by Palpatine his whole life. Look at his fight against Dooku. He disarms Dooku, ending the fight. Then, Palpatine goads him into finishing the job. Anakin even comments that he shouldn’t and it’s not the Jedi way. So, he knows what he has been taught, and he ignores it anyway. People can only teach those that want to be taught. Anakin knew it was wrong, and he did it anyway.

Being a Jedi isn’t about being perfect. It’s about having control over your emotions. Obi Wan had control over his emotions. That’s why he beat Vader. Luke had control over his emotions. That’s why he beat Vader. See, Vader’s struggle isn’t learning or anything. It’s controlling his anger and not letting it overcome him. It’s that lack of vision that causes Anakin to lose his wife. Rather than take advice and try and find a way around the dreams he’s having, he becomes completely obsessed with it and can’t see the big picture. And he loses. There’s nothing wrong with loss. The Jedi lose, but they come back from that loss. They learn from it. Anakin refused to learn from his failures.

So angry fan, no. Mace didn’t screw Anakin. Obi Wan didn’t screw Anakin. The Jedi didn’t screw Anakin. The only one that did was himself. Anakin screwed Anakin, and you need to deal with that.
