Would I join the Sith? Let me ask you something: Would you join up with the forces of Chaos in 40k. Hell no if you any choice in the matter. Chaos and the dark side of the force are very similar in this regard; many people go in with good, sympathetic, or at least sane motives; but almost everyone comes out a cackling, scheming psycho with no regard for whatever values led them down that path. Of course, as several people have said, in the SW verse, force sensitive individuals generally have the choice of who recruits them made for them. If I was unlucky enough to be recruited by the Sith, I'd make a beeline for a nice, comfortable position where I'm not in the way of anyone's megalomania.

History points out a simple fact.
Winner = Hero
Loser = War criminal

I wouldn't want to be the clearly evil and remorseless, cutthroat villain, but I certainly wouldn't join a creepy abstinence cult that basically kidnaps children at a young age and makes them live by their weird, creepy, sexless Vulcan lifestyle.

Hence: Smuggler.

Jedi don't kidnap children. No one is forced to be a Jedi. In fact, it's very easy to get kicked out. Now if you're force sensitive in the Empire. You're forced to train as a Sith and given the odds of success.. that most likely means your death.

Yes, I would be a Sith. America -- the American myth -- is over.

Although I might not join the Sith in reality, I would still use the Dark Side of the Force (because I like shocking and choking people).
“Equality is a lie…A myth to appease the masses. Simply look around and you will see the lie for what it is! There are those with power, those with the strength and will to lead. And there are those meant to follow—those incapable of anything but servitude and a meager, worthless existence.”

1. They strongly encourage Force Sensitive children be given to the Order.

2. When you're "kicked out", you're sent to work on a farm planet for the rest of your life.

3. Death, a forever-farm... What is the difference really?

OH BULL ****.

HELL YES I'd join the Sith if I actually could. Their code is more realistic, liberating, individualistic. The OP fails epically when he fails to realize that even tho the Sith run their empire, THEIR ORDER IS STILL A VERY SEPARATE ENTITY. With its own rules, history, etc. I'd gladly join the Sith ORDER. They worship the Force in ways similar to the Jedi. Just cuz it says Dark Side (ZOMG) should NOT have to automatically = Satanism. Their Empire, while having much better looking uniforms, tech, mech, etc.....I probably couldn't do it.

If SW was IRL, I'd either be a Dark Jedi or Grey Sith aligned with the Republic.
