On Episode 77, Alan, Mark, and Ryder discuss empathy in Star Wars.
Were Qui-Gon, Padme, Leia, Luke, Darth Vader and others actually empathetic or was there some selfishness involved?
Was empathy the Jedi way, and should it have been?
Are there instances when empathy from one character holds another back?
Why didn’t Obi-Wan kill Anakin on Mustafar?
We discuss these topics and much more on part 1 of this topic. We would be honored if you would join us!
