Governmental deficientcies of SW governments.

1. The rebublic. It was big, but they didnt keep a close eye on thier high eficials. I wonder how Palpy became sith lord at night and mandy at the weekends.

2. Empire. It was pretty powerful. But it's lack of killing small rebelions was awful,and how come it all fell apart when two of thier main leaders died? Wouldnt they have about 300000 or so?

Political fools and greedy dictators never last. At least in the SW galaxy. The New Republic seems to be doing well. I havent read much EU but from what Ive read they do just fine.


May the Force be with you...

Really, Palpatine took control legally... he manipulated a weak-minded fool into convincing the senate to give him emergency powers. After that, he could do whatever he wanted, without consulting the Senate... at the moment he was given those powers, the Senate became nothing but a figurehead. And I believe that Palpatine has always been a Sith... Maul had been training practically since he was born to be a Sith Lord, so why not Palpatine? I think that since Bane's army was defeated, and the Sith were laid low, they had been trying to infiltrate any high position they could find... until they made it to the office of Supreme Chancellor 1000 years later.

As for the Empire... the Empire was really just the Republic under martial law. Once Palpatine was deposed, and martial law ceased, the surviving members of the Senate could reassume control with little difficulty, especially since they obviously had the people behind them.

"Small Rebellions"

That's why they couldn't find it...
In a huge galaxy, what can you do?


Promise me...

That you'll train the boy...

hard to see, the good side is.

Fear can sometimes be a useful emotion. For instance, let's say you're and astronaut on the moon and you fear that your partner has been turned into Dracula. The next time he goes out for the moon pieces, wham!, you just slam the door behind him and blast off. He might call you on the radio and say he's not Dracula, but you just say, "Think again, bat man."
Try this on for size.

Indeed, crushing a small rebellion would be most difficult, because in an oppressive dictatorship there will always be people willing to join a cause......and the galaxy is a big big place to hide in. The empire would have to spread it's forces really thin to search them out, making them easier to destroy.
