I thought that it was already well-known that George Lucas wrote the prequels because he grew to hate that which he created; and, by extension, hate us for being so gauche as to love it, and demand more and more of it for entirely the wrong reasons.

…Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I did not read this Mike Klimo guy’s Ring Theory and I have no intention of doing so, largely because it’s twenty thousand words long and that’s a lot for a Wednesday night. But I’ll be honest: even if it was George Lucas’s intent to argue that good and evil are meaningless human constructs I’m still not going to buy into that particular bit of sophomoric bullshit. If only because I’ve met very few people who genuinely believed that and still managed to come across as being well-adjusted individuals. Yes, yes, I know: shallow of me. Still, there it is.
