I know it's not really the same issue, but I have similar feelings toward Jusik as I do toward American soldiers, who volunteered for service to their country, and then deserted to hide in Canada to avoid doing their sworn duty.
People can try to rationalize and justify it to the n'th degree, but in the end I can't get over the idea of breaking a sworn oath and desertion in a time of war, when one is needed the most. And they get lots of support from people here in Canada, just like Jusik get lots of support from RC readers.
I didn't think Jedi volunteered for anything most of the time they were brought into the academy as a baby?
Honestly, he didn't quite desert as decided that the Jedi way was not for him. He formally left didn't he, he didn't just up and leave without telling anyone.
Also, didn't Kal adopt him and give him the armor?
Though I think you would end up hating me, because I would do the same thing. Swearing an oath to be a protector and peacekeeper of the galaxy, but at the same time be main reason for starting several wars over the millennia. Then also pretty much enslaving a sentient beings who had no choice in the matter but to fight my war for me...
But you are right, you can't really justify leaving during a galactic war after swearing an oath.
just like Jusik get lots of support from RC readers.
Goshdangit I just proved you point..... >.<
Actually now i want to know what the actual Jedi Oath says?
