what I have come to suspect.

The Jedi Council want

control of the Republic.

They're planning to betray me.

- I don't think that-

- Anakin.

Search your feelings.

You know, don't you?

I know they don't trust you.

Or the senate.

Or the Republic.

Or democracy, for that matter.

I have to admit,

my trust in them has been shaken.


They asked you to do something that

made you feel dishonest, didn't they?

They asked you to spy on me,

didn't they?

I don't know what to say.

Remember back

to your early teachings.

All who gain power

are afraid to lose it.

- Even the Jedi.

- The Jedi use their power for good.

Good is a point of view, Anakin.

The Sith and the Jedi

are similar in almost every way...

including their quest

for greater power.

The Sith rely on their passion

for their strength.

They think inwards-

only about themselves.

And the Jedi don't?

The Jedi are selfless.

They only care about others.

Did you ever hear the tragedy

of Darth Plagueis the Wise?

I thought not. It's not a story

the Jedi would tell you.

It's a Sith legend.

Darth Plagueis was

a dark lord of the Sith...

Darth Plagueis was

a dark lord of the Sith...

so powerful and so wise...

he could use the Force to

influence the midi-chlorians...

to create... life.

He had such a knowledge

of the dark side...

he could even keep

the ones he cared about...

from dying.

He could actually...

save people from death?

The dark side of the Force is

a pathway to many abilities...

some consider to be unnatural.

What happened to him?

He became so powerful...

the only thing he was afraid of was...

Iosing his power.

Which eventually, of course, he did.

Unfortunately, he taught

his apprentice everything he knew.

Then his apprentice

killed him in his sleep.

It's ironic.
