The Sith Return

One lunar cycle has passed. The Sith slept deeply. Engulfed in Sith work they were, concentrating on the domination of the systems in the outer rim, and the imbibing of much amber liquid they have been. Assisted they did, in the visit of the Jedi Saint Ignucious and his blessing of all things OSS in Malaysia. As predicted, the Sith are fond of VI VI VI, the mark of the beast as an editor and not the infernal flames of Emacs.

Interestingly too, the Sith known as Darth Perfidious hath made his audio media appearance. Invited he was by the wookie Dzof Azmi for a guest spot on the PPS Review Podcast. Created much havoc and very little content he did, in Episode 3 - Revenge of the Sith on the Wookie. Much fun the Sith had, for it returned memories of a past existence when his voice was sent out thru the ether of the systems and remembered even in the remotest planets among the outer rim of the galaxy.

Celebrate its 48th Independence Day does the Federation of Malaysia. Much statements do its leaders make on perpaduan and Bangsa Malaysia. Much irony this is too, for barely two lunar cycles past, the younglings of the UMNO Alliance brandished a keris sabre and demanded the NEP be reinstated. Fly this does in the face of logic and sincerity. Speak thus of perpaduan and Bangsa Malaysia, while noble, but ring of insincerity it does. Achieve not perpaduan they can, if insist on affirmative action policies they will. Much discontent this has sowed, and a mockery of the goals of the Federation this has made. The Sith chortle in glee at the chaos this has caused.

The Federation is in not better nor worse a state it was in when the Sith slumbered over the last lunar cycle. The humans of the planet Earth have a ditty for this, same shit, different day.

The Sith yawn.

Of the Jedi, we share this wisdom:

Supreme Chancellor: Remember back to your early teachings. "All who gain power are afraid to lose it." Even the Jedi.

Anakin Skywalker: The Jedi use their power for good.

Supreme Chancellor: Good is a point of view, Anakin. The Sith and the Jedi are similar in almost every way, including their quest for greater power.

Quest for power almost always becomes all-consuming, eventually corrupting the seeker. Damned if you're Jedi, damned if you're not :)

Fascinating to watch was the adulation of Stallman, moreso than watching him speak.
