So? You are being fucking stupid.
I guess this is where I'm suppose to insult you back, but instead I'm just going to photo-copy my hand flipping you the bird.
What's the difference retard?
OK, fine 7 weeks. Do you honestly think that challenges my point at all.
And prove that it has been erased from memory, and it's not just that people are terrified to speak about it, as you yourself point out.
It has been erased from memory, because the younger generation don't know it ever happened. Absence of knowledge, aka erased
. How do I know? Because I deal with foreign exchange students from China all the time at my local university. I ask them if they recognize the term, and so far 100% of them (several hundreds over the course of a decade) have said they don't know what I mean by the "Tienanmen Square Massacre".
So your definition of "erased" is "no longer taught"?
Nice anecdote you are using as "evidence" there too.
Sorry, but "erased" from memory, means ALL memory. Not just children haven't been told about it yet. And FUCKING AGAIN stupid ass, you are talking about ONE SINGLE INCIDENT in ONE COUNTRY on ONE PLANET. Last time I checked, the Jedi did manage to get around in their TEN THOUSAND YEARS OF EXISTENCE.
If the argument was "The Empire suppressed and erased all knowledge of the Jedi from the lower continent on planet Abacusisaretard." then your point, with all it's anecdotal evidence MIGHT hold water. Even then you have ZERO evidence, nor could you even ever provide it, that noone, not just children, which is your assertion in this thread, in China remembers or knows about TS.
I'm a minimalist? I site 10,000 generations of history in an entire populated galaxy vs your 7 weeks on one planet.
And you are ascertaining that the GE could in 30 years, undue thousands of years of history, not just history, but glorified history... someone should be accused of something, but it ain't minimalism, and it ain't me.
"10,000 Generations of history in an entire populated galaxy"? You somehow assume that Jedi traveled to every fucking planet in the SW galaxy? That every little kid grew up thinking that if something bad happened, the Jedi would save them? To use a parallel analogy, I'll quote the following:
Wow what a leap of fucking logic that just was. Point out where I ever even insinuated that you dishonest piece of shit?
"I encounter civilians like you all the time. You believe the Empire is continually plotting to do harm. Let me tell you, your view of the Empire is far too dramatic. The Empire is a government. It keeps billions of beings fed and clothed. Day after day, year after year, on thousands of worlds, people live their lives under Imperial rule without seeing a stormtrooper or hearing a TIE fighter scream overhead."
―Captain Thrawn, to Tash Arranda
Thrawn quotes shocking.
Again dill fucking hole. Jedi were dispatched at the behest of the fucking Chancellor of the galaxy. Not knowing about Jedi, regardless of what you believed about their abilities, is akin to not knowing about the Chancellor of the Galactic Senate.
People throughout the entire galaxy would not ALL have heard about the Jedi, and less than 1% of those worlds ever had a Jedi step onto their terra firma. Also, throughout the course of those 10,000 years you mention, a lot of knowledge will have been lost. People that lived during the Clone Wars wouldn't have known who the fuck Darth Revan was or who Lord Hoth was, etc. The only place you might find such ancient and long-term information would be the Jedi Archives, which was fucking restricted to members of the Jedi Order.
Your are right. Over 10,000 years, individual people and names might be forgotten. In 30 years the name of a group of people that were intertwined not only in the galactic politics of the previous government, but were KEY, PUBLIC players in the creation of the Empire that Palpatine ACKNOWLEDGES in his "FIRST GALACTIC EMPIRE!" speech would not be.
"Glorified" history? If you mean the media presentation of "sensationalism" in delivering their news, then you might have a point...oh wait, the next sensational story comes along and everyone forgets the last one. As if the world at large in "a galaxy far, far away" is no less afflicted to short-sightedness or short-term memory than our own is absurd. The sensational stories of the Clone Wars would have been supplanted by the story of the "Jedi Rebellion" and their attempt to overthrow the Senate and kill Palpatine (as he canonically spun it). By propaganda and authoritarian control, anything can happen.
Oh man, so the Star Wars galaxy must have our short attention spans, but can't possibly have, you know a million books, videos, websites, stories that talk about the Jedi like we would... oh wait... do.
I referred to this before, and since you want to invoke how our society acts and must be a direct representation and reflection of how theirs acts, then explain how they would NOT glorify the Jedi, the way every society and country on Earth glorifies our current and ancient warriors? i.e., Spartans, Samurai, Mongols, Marines, Aztecs, Vikings, Romans, French Foreign Legion... do I need to go on?
That's a nice link that says nothing about the effectiveness of the Purge. Try again.
You're obviously an obtuse, blind, G.E.D. type of fellow, so I won't attempt to point out how much of a bigger idiot you can become. It's obvious you've maxed out on those personality traits - sorry - flaws. It would seem that you are incapable of following another persons argument in any coherent fashion.
Oh what happened to Mr. I Am Above Insults.
Apparently you aren't above being a liar.
And please, that article talks about vague attempts and acts and says nothing about effectiveness outside of the physical purge of the Jedi, which according to your precious EU, the Empire couldn't even get right!
They couldn't even kill all the ACTUAL Jedi, yet you sit here and expect us to believe that they could wipe out all trace of memory, photographs, videos, stories, books, etc... you are such a fool.
Also, you've once again polluted another thread by going off topic. To paraphrase one of my favorite movie quotes of all time: "Mr. Havok, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
Man you are a fucking laugh riot. This may have been effective if more than like, one person agreed with you.
