By the way, it is alright to transition into a Jedi vs. Sith debate because they are so intertwined with the historical events and struggles that occurred between the Republic/Rebellion and the Empire/CIS. However, this shouldn't consume the whole debate and become the only part of the discussion.

My philosophical tendencies have agreed with the Jedi and Stoicism in some respects: suppressing negative emotions and working for the common good. However, their hypocritical and apathetic responses to the Republic and the way everyone assumes they're perfect is what turns me against them. On the side, because Lucas is a Buddhist, I think that's influenced his creation of the Jedi as who they are as they share many principles.
