Like any government, the Old Republic had rules, ancient laws which formed the basis for a civil society. Equally wise and confounding, specific and obscure, nobody is quite sure where these decrees originated — all we know for certain is that there are ten of them. Ten rules… ten laws… ten commandments.
And so, at the risk of some sorta heresy, here are:
The Top Ten Commandments of the Star Wars Galaxy
#10 —- Thou Shalt Not Use The Force In Vain.
#9 —- Thou Shalt Not Worship Protocol Droids, No Matter How Shiny.
#8 —- Remember The Death Star, And Keep It Holey.
#7 —- Thou Shalt Not Know Anger. Nor Hatred. Nor Love.
#6 —- Thou Shalt Not Kidnap… I’m Looking At You, Sand People!
#5 —- Honor Thy Mother And, If Applicable, Thy Father.
#4 —- Thou Shalt Not Shoot First.*
#3 —- Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighboring Planet’s Senator, Nor Thy Sister, You Perveth.
#2 —- Thou Shalt Not Bear False Wicket.
And the #1 Star Wars Commandment is —- Thou Shalt Not Applaud As Liberty Dies.
