Jonathan V. Last (the online editor for the Weekly Standard who actually chooses to be represented by the above illustration) argues here that the Empire from Star Wars is good because it seeks order. I'm posting about this because when I saw this I was a bit taken aback. I'm no Star Wars expert, but I have always taken it to be a rather morally clear narrative. Mr. Last does have some trouble defending the "bad guys," but he eventually manages, justifying even the murder of an entire planet of people in the first movie. Reading this article has brought me to a new level of understanding of neo-cons and their foreign policy goals.
