The Electric Commentary

Have I mentioned lately that Marginal Revolution cool?

Well, I'm doing it again. Just check out this spoiler free Straussian Review of the new Star Wars movie, by Tyler Cowen:

6. The prophecy was that Anakin (Darth) will restore order to the force. How true this turns out to be. But none of the Jedi can begin to understand what this means. Yes, you have to get rid of the bad guys. But you also have to get rid of the Jedi. The Jedi are, after all, the primary supply source and training ground for the bad guys. Anakin/Darth manages to get rid of both, so he really is the hero of the story. (It is also interesting which group of "Jedi" Darth kills first, but that would be telling.)

Then, if you're really, really, really bored (really) check out this quiz by Jim Propp, courtesy of Alex Tabarrok. Here's the first question:

1. The first question whose answer is B is question
(A) 1
(B) 2
(C) 3
