Let’s sum up.
We destroy civilizations from the sky, using terrifying technology only we control.
…and it proves ineffective.
Governor Tarkin: [refering to Leia] She lied. She lied to us.
Darth Vader: I told you she would never consciously betray the Rebellion.
We use killer robots.
Our militarized police kill civilians without trial or repercussion.
But we’re the good guys. Right?
