The "sordid mess" of Jedi spirituality

Steve Kellmeyer has written a thought-provoking essay on the spiritual bankruptcy of Star Wars: Episode III:

In short, the whole series is not the clear-cut clash of good against evil that attracted thousands in the 1970’s. Instead, it is transformed into a sordid mess, a series of stupid people doing stupid things for stupid reasons.

Mr. Kellmeyer takes a different approach than I did in my recent post on Star Wars, but I do think he's on to something.
