Kinda this.

I always seen it that light or dark side of the force are not evil and good of themselves merely the energy of life and death. have to much of one or the other and you get crushing extremes.

Death and destruction is easy so the jedi shun it because its hard to stop.

It doesn't make the darkside of the force evil it makes it a power people shouldn't wield. We are living things and controlling the forces of death corrupt us.

Kriea's issue wasn't so much the force as much as the force moving force wielders to fight each other. light must fight dark to maintain balance and this was tearing the universe apart.

She wrong but right.

Or you can do what I did and turn off all of the LS/DS indicators, and just react and let the points come as they may.

Neutral doesn't truly work. In the end you will have to make a choose upon something regardless of how big or small it is. Basis of really anything that lives.

What's the neutral equivalent to flight or flight. Fickle?

TBF, see DnD alignments.

SW has very bizarre black/white alignments based on an equally bizarre interpretation of (nondualistic!) Eastern religion. Good for an MMORPG, kind of laughable in a serious RP setting that goes beyond pulp fantasy.

And like I said, for the Lore answer, read "Unifying Force"

Fetal position? Failure to react?

The force is not directly good or evil, but many of the wars in SW are over the force because the sith and jedi are constantly plotting against each other, Kreia liked the exile because she believes through him the force may be destroyed.
