I don't quite understand the relevance of the Jedi code mantra to this discussion. Am I missing something? Could you please explain?


Star wars is of course fiction but the jedi code actually makes more sense to me as a universal religion than any philosophy or religion that people actually follow in the real world.

That's the American way. Rugged self individualism. "Greed is Good" But theres much more to it than mere selfishness. USA was founded on luciferian principles. Western modernity main god is money, materialism. One nation under the almighty dollar.
