Star Wars and Armenians

so what woudl Star Wars and Armenians have in common? I would say at least one analogy that comes to my mind is hte dialogue that two of hte characters have. Thus in a scene when the two characters are about to have their culmianting fight the follwoing conversation goes on:

Anakin Skywalker: If you're not with me, then you're my enemy.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Only a Sith deals in absolutes.

this reminds me of the overall absolutism that Armenian life is blanketed in. and the whoel protocol thing just highlighted this absolutims even more when people (both pro and anti protocls) used "sith" like methods to draw lines and to exclude anyeoen who did not agree with them.

in an environment such as that it is quite possibel for people to keep listening and hearing what they want to hear and hence the chances of an intra-Armenian dialogue have actually diminished even more.

this fear of factionalism might be a manifestation of Armenian male insecurity complexes where leaders of various organizations and groups in Armenian life (and in Armenia for that matter) would love to be surrounded by "yes sir" and "yes sir, yes" people rather than exposing themselves to alternative ideas and concepts.

this whole situation leads most experts and almost all of the "experts" on history and politics to articulate ideas and concepts that they think the public wants to hear rather than what the public SHOULD hear.

this in turn makes one wonder, should the leadership follow the public by repeating what appeases them or should lead the public by educating and informing them?

I think at the end of the day, the lack of democracy in Armenian world makes the leadership of Armenian organizations throughout the world non-representative of the people they claim to represent and hence increase the divide between the people and those who "represent" them!
