This (now deleted) "answer" came up in the first posts review. It attempts to answer the question why the Jedi would serve a corrupt republic by trying to draw parallels to the current situation in the USA, then dwells on that current situation and forgets to mention how this is relevant to the actual question. It's more a rant about US politics than anything else.
I flagged it as "Not an Answer" (NaA) either from review or from the question itself and left a comment for the answerer to please edit their post into an answer.
That flag was declined with the following comment (which I understand is likely to be a templated response).
declined - flags should not be used to indicate technical inaccuracies, or an altogether wrong answer
Esteemed user Dr. Dizzle flagged the same post as NaA and their flag was declined too.
I'd like to know how this was not "not an answer".
I've asked a similar question before. In that case the answer I had flagged wasn't a particularly good answer, but I had to admit it was indeed an answer.
However, this is in no way an answer. This is a rant, triggered by a question about Star Wars.
Here's the post in its entirety.
I have your answer. It is an easy answer for me. But it is complex. let me start by saying that the first three movies were made in a different time. back then we still had the pledge of allegiance to a republic every morning in school, in high school they banned it because of the word "God" in it. That's what they told us anyway. but the real reason was our oath to our once republic. Our forefather's did not want a democracy, they knew that democracies always ended violently and always killed themselves from the inside out. like cancer. A republic is the only form of government where you are truly free. when you get paid in "credits" these things can be printed off at any whim like fiat currency. when we had gold as money which the constitution says is the only thing that is "money". because Money holds is store of value inside itself. you hold that labor in your hands. but when you have a fiat system they steal your labor for credits for their buddies stores.. except the us has taken it to a new level and gone globally. think of this on a larger scale. there are 7 stages to an empire. look at the fall of rome. George Lucas took ideas and history and made a fictional universe to teach people the important things in a fun way, but years later.. you have a huge difference in what is acceptable content for television. And how do they indoctrinate our youth into accepting the world for what it is? television, music, internet, movies, it's everywhere.. So back to question, why would a Jedi serve a corrupt democracy? well why are our leaders doing the same thing in real life? because generations of subtle changes and eventually you will see the integrity of our system rot from the inside out like it is. if you need proof of any of this or have any questions please check it out for yourselves. Word play is also a powerful tool to keep people ignorant to the truth. Like when they use words that you don't quite know the meaning of.. citizen for one, it's not what you want to be. It means the opposite of of the ideals of the US Constitution. Like U.S. and U.S.A. there's a huge difference. we no longer have a USA America was done with a long time ago. the US corporation act of 1871 was the end of our republic. And that was the only thing the Civil War was fought over. But if you ask any American why the civil war was fought.. they'll tell you because of slavery. Yet Lincoln was as racist as they come... that's probably why he was assassinated.
