Good and Evil: Part 2


So, even if Darth Vader's motives seem righteous to him (which they tried explaining in Episode 2), it is apparent to the audience who the good guys are and who the bad guys are. So, in world conflicts today, even though the sides aren't decked out in white and black uniforms to make it easy, why is it so difficult for people to agree on who the good guys are. And I'm not saying 1 side's perfect and 1 side's morally inferior. I'm saying, when you see a conflict going on in the world, and you learn why it's going on, it should be fairly easy to see who has the best case. Why is this so difficult?

People simply differ over what causes they believe make starting a war just.
