Darth Vader wasn't evil, he was just misunderstood

Don't blame it on the Dark Side. Anakin Skywalker's epic transformation into the evil Darth Vader may have been a result of mental illness, according to a group of French psychiatrists and psychologists.

In a paper published in the journal Psychiatry Research, Eric Bui and his colleagues at Toulouse University Hospital have given new meaning to the term "Jedi mind tricks" with their psychoanalysis of why the tragic "Star Wars" hero fell from Jedi grace. Apparently, he had borderline personality disorder.

As he came of age, Skywalker showed problems with impulsivity, violent outburs

And this is why the field of psychology fails......"personality disorders" are a joke to begin with.

Seriously though, google personality disorders...they are utterly retarded and they're nothing more than an excuse of psychs to bill insurance companies when they can't figure out a real disorder.

Darth Vader was the ultimate pro-order, "conservative", pro-justice civil servant!

Please also be reminded, it took Darth Vader to bring-down the Emperor!

I believe 'Absolute power corrupts absolutely' was the central theme to Vader's role. That doctor should be put in the stocks.

This was a fictional character.

You all remember this was a fictional character right?

Okaaaaay, lie back and relax.......

Darth Vader is not a real person!!! OK, shrinks, relax.

Shrinks should be shrinked because they are all nuts, and they are creating new mental disorders on a daily basis.

I think psychologists can be helpful, but psychiatrists all started off loony - which is why they are in that field - and they send their patients even loonier.

How right you are , not quite " breaking news " .

Perhaps it would be better suited for the Psychology, Philosophy & Metaphysics forum ?

But sense we are talking about it , Darth Vader has to be one of the coolest bad guys of all time


And so what if he was crazy , I would be too if I was surrounded by a bunch of mindless storm troopers always messing things up .

Well, that's the Liberal MSM's point-of-view, but ...
... how can we be sure he was only fictional?

There are many posts on ATS about star-empires that pre-date our "history" ... maybe it's just Lucas tapping-into a genetic memory of some kind!

yeah, maybe you are right.

Can a mod move this to the Psychology, Philosophy & Metaphysics forum?

I was thinking the same exact thing. What the hell is going on around here?

It's good to know that such a highly skilled and intelligent group of minds are using time and money in such a productive way.. this is almost as bad as the english council who spent tens of thousands on art pieces to lock them away from public view.

Seriously, is it something about the more intelligence you gain, it shoves common sense out of the other ear?

He was separated from his mother at a very young age. Your honour, he really can't be held responsible for any of his crimes...

I would have loved to have heard these guys discuss their arguments during this study...

"Luke, I'm your father"

I wonder if they dressed the part?

Helps him glue his head back togeather with a grin.
I can't believe a bunch of head shrinkers actualy got funding to do this on a fictional charecter that was thought up by the impressive mind of george lucas.

I own some swamp land they can buy from me, and oh darn its covered in red gooy oil...so sorry guess I can't even get rid of that anymore...darn..

a VERY good point, the man made out to be the anti-christ of this script was in the end a saviour, sure its just a film but a good one. there are still lessons to be learned in films no matter how unreal they are. in this one its quite clear, love conquered evil.

You guys just don't get it, do you? This is the most important study of all time!!!
Let me give you a hint to the next Star Wars movie sequel episode 7!

Vadar (in spirit form): Luke! remember to take your meds.

Luke: What?

Vadar: I was mentally ill, you have my Genes, which means that you may have the same problem that I had, or it may skip you and be passed on to your children... Oh, by the way, tell Leia to take meds too, just in case.

Luke: Nooooooooooo!!!!!!!! (same cry when he found out Vadar was his father in "The Empire Strikes Back")

:laugh:
