Food for thought:What if the old republic had survived?

Purly for the sake of arugment:
Lets say the empire never existed.

How would the galaxie look then?

Remember all thing's are purly speculation.

I personal think that if darth sidous and darth vadar where never born the galaxie would be corrupt ineffecent complacent weak unable to maintan order.
While they would be united in name there wouldnt be any unity.
Planets looking out for number uno with little to no regard to others.
Much like the un we arent really united but we find that helping eatchother is beneficial.
knowledge is power.
use it well.

Good players take any and all advantages they can get, actually. It's why they are good.

Then the Romulans would have invaded and imposed strict laws against any surviving Vulcan.

I would say the galaxy would be full of whiners and no one around to kill them, I mean put them out of their misery. The Empire actually brought strength to the republic or those who would eventually join the republic against the empire. Without the empire no would would get any balls or do challenging things. The empire molded and caused humans to evolve in a way because the weak and the pathetic were shed from the galaxy. Only the strong should survive.

Star Wars would be very boring, just the minor civil war here and there.

Balance of power - the old republic will never survive coz if it's not empire, something else or just anything, along the way would rise up against it when it was powerful and complacent.

There's a reason why history is cyclical.

Basically, Anakin would make it to Grand Master of the Council for being the Chosen One, rewrite the rules, and allow Jedi to have relationships. He would then raise his son and daughter, only to be killed in his sleep by Luke.

Pro, amirite?

The Old republic had grown into a very corrupt and problematic govt. When something gets weak it is eaten by the wolves. Govt as it gets older seems to lead to problems, look at rome, china etc. Basically something else would have come in and taken over before the vong ever got there.

The Old Republic did survive.

Incase you've forgotten, Palpatine became supreme chancellor of it.

I think he means if the Republic didn't turn into the Empire.
