Should the Jedi be culled?

Actually if you look at the big picture the Jedi are amazingly efficient at keeping the numbers of Dark Jedi to a minimum, there has been hundred of thousands of Jedis throughout 25000 years of galactic history yet only those few mentioned ever became true threats to the galaxy, that's like a 99% success rate of your training regime, can't really expect the Jedi to do better than this
Darth Securos - Dark Lord of the Sith
Captain Galen Sunlighter - Just a simple man making his way on the galaxy
Agent Keldran Reus - "Corellian ale, shaken not stirred"

Kyp was merely a padawan who was very early in his training. He was more or less posessed by the spirit of Exar Kun.

This.

The Sith are rooted FAR deeper than just a few force users from Tython back in the day, the Sith have always been around, and they still would have, regardless of the fact they came from the Founders on Tython.

You can't defeat the Dark Side, nor the Light.

This topic is pointless because it wouldn't matter anyway.

1. Good people turn bad all the time, why pick on just Jedi.
2. Isn't killing someone in case they go bad rather....bad.
3. Who will kill the sith if there are no Jedi?

it should be noted that the edi, might have problesm falling to the darkside every once in a while.

but the sith have bigger problems. not only do they have an enemy in the jedi, but they have enemy's in their friends. at any point any sith can be killed by any other sith. a master could be killed by their apprentice. so the apprentice can climb the ladder. that same master could kill the apprentice so not to be killed themself, or that master could try and kill some1 higher up the chain to take there place. ultimately leading to killig some1 on the dark council. dark council members would kill any1 who seems to be climbing ranks too fast, or would lkill eachother in never ending plots for power, or to defend their position. and any sith at any time including dark council members can be killed by the emperor.

so you think the jedi have problems. least if your a jedi. dark jedi are so few and far between, you dont need to watch your back all the time

That list shows around a dozen Jedi who have gone bad (and some redeemed back to the Light)...out of the THOUSANDS of Jedi that have existed over THOUSANDS of years...just because a handful have famously gone bad that means EVERY Jedi should be destroyed?

This is an extremely difficult thing to ask of someone, and is not a decision a child could make. The Jedi should not actively recruit young force sensitives, but should only accept adults who have committed themselves to the Code and have proven themselves capable. The Jedi should be a very small and selective order, rather than a huge organization of Force sensitives. For analogy, I would say that the Jedi should be seen like monks and nuns; a select group of individuals who have committed themselves to a strict cause. Not all Force sensitives need to be Jedi, just like not all Christians need to be monks or nuns.
This! I'm sure Jedi numbers would still be relatively stable. After all the Sith survived for a while with just 2 members and still wielded enormous influence. Quality over quantity. And they should stop brainwashing little children and forcing the jedi way of life on them. Not to mention forcing them to remove ties to their parents!

Objectively, if you treat both like the religions/cults that they are, they're both relatively extremists. Grey Jedi is the only way to go in these parts.

That's what I thought. Thanks. Didn't want to go through my box of Star Wars novels looking for it.
