Don't be too impatient. I eat young apprentices for breakfast.

That is the way of the Sith. One master to embody the power and one to crave it. An endless cycle.

@Olivier5,
That was the point of all of those Star Wars books, and their movies, mo one ever, "truly" won. It's an endless cycle of light and dark, then light again, and dark. You get my point.

@Cipherius,
That was a very accurate statement of Star Wars.

@Logicus,
Rule no 1 of serial novels: the vilain never dies, or the series would stop and the editor be very angry.

Tsk tsk tsk... There's no solidarity between the bad guys, they keep trying to cheat one another. Sad really.

@Olivier5,
It is. But it makes an interesting story. Perhaps you should read it not necessarily for educational purposes, but for entertainment. It is a rather good book, if you can past the genocide thing.

Sounds more like Ayn Rand to me than Nietzsche.

@joefromchicago,
I have never heard of Ayn Rand before. Maybe I should find out who this person is.

Oh yeah . . . you could study Ayn Rand's "philosophy," the underlying tenet of which is to think for yourself.

@Logicus,
Stay in school. Ayn Rand is an icon for some. (I'm not one of them.)

Yeah! That genocide thing. How distasteful.

@Logicus,
Enough genocides on this planet already, without looking for them on other planets, IMO.

Used to be some awesome rock concerts at the remnants of their former mansion, back in the 1980s.

@Logicus,
The extract you quoted raises a couple of interesting points for me, Logicus. DB and the Sith Code remind me very strongly of Nietzsche's ideas regarding herd morality and good and evil being unhelpful made-up constructs with the will to power (similar to DZ referring to the 'will' to the dark side being maximising your own power/potential?) - these two Sith lords here I think woud be eager subscribers to Nietzsche's ideas regarding morality.
But I think I've also spotted something interesting here.
DZ asserts that evil is a nonsensical concept, yet seems to exist in a universe governed by cosmic dualism - there is a light and dark side of the force which battle against each other for supremacy, and the universe is this battleground. Yet DZ seems to deny that this evil exists as the dark side as an objective force (or am I reading too much into this???)
