The president of the united states literally said there are fine people on both sides when asked to denounce white supremacy and nazism.....part of the backlash across several completely different mediums be it film, video games, comics, etc. is due to an active push against progressivism accomplished through the radicalization of young impressionable caucasian males as well as jaded older caucasian males.. Fascism isn't just spreading in the U.S. but Europe as well. So yea I'd say there's several issues.
Jesus, take a fucking history class.
In TLJ. Luke's pretty much hate Old Jedi way he said bullshit a lot about them.30 years of peace isn't nothing. And Luke was doomed to failure when he tried to restore the Jedi order instead of doing his own thing. The Jedi failed for a reason, their philosophy and organization was crap - they were basically a cult that wanted its members to reject family/love + meddled into everything and were warmongers instead of peacekeepers as shown by the prequel trilogy + clone wars. Now the OT Jedi seemed pretty cool to me, but Lucas ruined it with the prequel stuff.
I mean, the problem was that they learned too much of the wrong thing from past mistakes. They decentralized so a Palpatine could never happen again. They didn't overreact to planets that didn't want to play ball so a Palpatine never happened again. They did everything they could to keep history from repeating itself, which just made it easy for the First Order to catch them with their pants down since the previous Republic operated the way it did for a reason even if their methods were eventually exploited and used against them.
All of the above are pretty big story points in Rey's and Kylo's trilogy.
Lol. The build up happened in the 30 years between the sequels. That’s like saying WW2 was pointless because the Cold War/a bunch of proxy wars still happened. The trio didn’t end war and defeat evil forever they just kept it at bay.
