I had mixed feelings towards the new Star Trek. I hope he will show better on the Star Wars.

I'd have to say though, A Darth Caedus would be the easiest way to make a 7, 8, and 9.

I do also strongly believe that Darth Bane should be considered canon, one because the Sith Brotherhood story arc would fit together, and would also eloquently explain "The Rule of Two" a master, and an apprentice.

All I'm hoping for is that JJ Abrams doesnt pervert the story much like he did in the Star Trek reboot.

Kirk is supposed to yell KHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAN, not Spock you idiot.

ill just repeat my self Wink

Quinlan Vos' Appearance
The Kiffar Species
Delta Squad
Korriban (aka Moraband)
The Nightsisters
Death Watch
The Viszla family
Cin Drallig
White Lightsabers
Yellow Lighstabers
Shoto Lightsabers
Jar Kai Lightsaber Fighting Style
Coruscant Level 1313
Sifo Dyas' appearance
Black Sun
Appearance of Sith Lords from the Old Republic
Darth Bane (although technically he's a Lucas creation)
The Zygaryan Slavers

All of the above were previously C-Canon elements that have now been brought up into new canon. Sure it's not much, but hey, it's something.


As you can see that Darth bane is in the list...

Xasomur's opinion includes emotion. It is integral to his opinion. Without that emotion, his opinion would be fundamentally different.

This means that if you want to respect his opinion, you must also respect the emotion that is part of it. Some of that emotion is due to the opinions of others. In particular, anyone who supports declaring Expanded Universe material non-canon necessarily has an effect on the time, energy, and emotion Xasomur has spent in the past immersing himself in the Star Wars universe.

This creates a nuanced problem where the people in control and those who support those in control (Disney and ExiDux, for example) have inherent power in the situation. In other words, the future of Star Wars is going to proceed in a path decided by Disney, and therefore anyone who agrees with Disney has the privilege of not needing to fear that their opinions or experiences will be marginalized.

We've all heard that "with great power comes great responsibility." It can be strongly argued that people who are in power and those who agree with people in power have a moral responsibility to be understanding and helpful in a sincere way to those who are not in power. The simplest step to take is to affirm the opinions and emotions of those who aren't in power without turning the conversation into something about you. While this sounds easy, in reality it is very difficult for everyone who has privilege.

So how does this specifically play out in this thread? ExiDux, Angel, BDL, and Epic don't experience the same emotion that Xasomur does to this announcement. They have the privilege of not being deeply affected by the news the way that Xasomur is; it doesn't seem to affect them as much. The wrong thing to do is to automatically compete with Xasomur about how valuable your opinion is. You have less emotion invested into the topic; you have less at stake. You are certainly entitled to your differing opinion, but you may have a moral responsibility to avoid competing to make the conversation about you. Your opinion already has the power if it aligns with Disney's. This means that any strength with which you imbue your arguments primarily serves to silence the minority, not protect your opinion. Your opinion is already protected because the people in power, Disney, already agree.

The second implication is that calls to simply "agree to disagree," to stop arguing, to lock the topic, are unfairly in the best interest of the people whose opinion aligns with those in power. If the topic is closed, that is well and good for those who agree with Disney's decision because that decision will most likely occur with or without arguments. But for those who passionately disagree, privileged requests to "just agree to disagree" are effectively requests for the minority to "please stop bothering us with your opinion."

I know people in here have mostly good intentions. But sometimes asking for everyone to play nice and to not argue isn't a fair request because the playing field isn't even. This obviously does not just apply to a Star Wars forum; this is a dynamic that has far-reaching, important implications in serious real life issues. It's one of the important mechanisms at play in privilege vs. oppression dynamics that exist in all aspects of life.


Okay I read like half of it. Wink

Why did I get -karma for this ? It was just a joke referring to Nicks comments :L
