Theres for some reason that wanting the Jedi dead brings thew galaxies enemies together.

Why do people hate Jedi so much? They are trying their hardest to defend the civilians but people think the ability to use the force makes them feel that Jedi feel they have some supremacy.:bows:

Perhaps the people hate the Jedi so much because the order has shown on enough occasions that it cares more about their political status and their own survival than it does about the lives of civilians...

Also theeres cause and effect...whatever the Jedi do pisses someone off...some people have personal vendettas(spelling) against them and others believe them to be no use at all.

Jedi are trying to make everything better, not everyone can win, so they piss someone off. Sith on the otherhand, well they don't care if they piss someone off do they, they aren't trying to help people? Sith seem to have better ideologies though, for the most part....

That's also one of the problems with the Jedi-order... everyone who isn't for them is always suspected to be Sith...

... or a Goa'uld. ;)

I don't know why other people hate the Jedi, but Boba Fett hates them because a Jedi killed Jango Fett, a man Boba thought is his father. I wonder if his feelings would be any different if Jango told him he's just a clone. :uhm:

Personally I think he figured it out.

The death of Jango is one reason. Boba saw the Jedi no different from the Sith( like most mandolorians) He also believed them to be stuck up and pompous and enjoyed humiliating them such as during the Caedus crsis Futhermore(lol posh or what) he did not see why they should interfer in affairs as they simply pissed someone else off

This is mainly due to what Jango told him

I don’t know to what extent anyone but the Jedi made people hate the Jedi. The Jedi Code was not a code of compassion and it was exclusionary in nature. Jinn did not free the slaves because his code did not tell him he could and thus it was, by default, forbidden. And he was a renegade, as Jedi went. I remember something that goes along the lines of:

'If you followed the code you'd be on the council.'

The quintessential Jedi Master, as contrasted against this, must be Yoda. Yet when Luke asked Yoda what he should do about his friends dying Yoda's advice was to let them die, when Anakin asked Yoda what to do about his woman’s death his advice was to learn to let go. While the former may be understandable, don't throw your life away, to dismiss the latter without any investigation portrays The Jedi Code as a rather perverse religion rather than a practical moral system; adhered to out of a love for order rather than a love for people.

Entry to the council effectively relied upon being subservient to a very restrictive set of rules that only made sense within the confines of maintaining the power hierarchy for the rich and otherwise privileged. If you were on top Jedi were wonderful people, if you were at the base however they were just something else to keep you there. They were a few people in an ivory tower with access to a lot of power that over time came to subscribe to an increasingly isolationist ideology since they only listened to people who agreed with them. The Jedi used the light side of the force but they were not on the side of the common man - they were on the side of the demons and tore the galaxy apart while preaching about how righteous they were for doing so.

And when faith in the code fell through so did everything else; Jedi turning to the darkside had no stabilising influences, no compassion for a world which they didn’t really live in to begin with.

So abandon Boba on the fringes of society, where respect for the Jedi isn’t going to be much to begin with and where their actions in supporting the existing order, regardless of its character, are hardly anything that casts them in a good light. Jango may not have been his father but I think Boba would have ended up hating them regardless of his knowledge of that.

Wouldn't both Jedi and Sith ideologies rendered useless due to moral relativism? I mean sure more often, people don't feel like huggy, happy, gay idiots who'd help just about anybody who passed by in anyway they can but it also depends on mood, doesn't it? Wouldn't then by this the ideology of the Grey Jedi be the best?

As much as the Jedi suck I doubt the Sith aren't any better. Or at least I would think so. The people of Star Wars in general have a hatred for force-users, jedi or sith. If you've played TSL, I think Atton (one of your companions) mentioned something along those lines that they're something like people with too much power who abuse their position. It's just that the Jedi do it differently and the Sith do it differently. But either way it sucks just as much for the people who aren't force sensitive.
