Honestly I am beginning to wonder if this is going to partially rehabilitate the prequels as well.
Nothing can rehabilitate the prequels ....

Ok so consider this.

Humans of the New Republic colonized Naboo, which was already occupied by a sentient species. Humans treated that species like shit and did not engage in respectful dialogue with them. Meanwhile, the Republic initiates a conflict with the shipping company which provides service in that part of the galaxy by imposing tarriffs on shipping (which I assume Naboo did not want to pay in raised prices of goods) and then sending an armed delegation to "resolve" the conflict. The shipping company responds by implementing a work action by blockading shipping to and from the planet and using armed force to deter scabs brought in by the Republic.

Rather than negotiate a peaceful settlement, the human government of Naboo (currently run by a semi-electoral child aristocracy....what?) ends up recruiting an incompetent member of the indigenous species (who may or may not have been a saboteur and who was an exile from his people because of that) and uses him to gain knowledge of the indigenous species's politics in order to manipulate them into marching en masse against the shipping company's military hardware, resulting in huge losses with no actual purpose, because the space battle was the only battle of any importance. The human colony then uses this "victory" to push this saboteur and nitwit into a position of power where he could "represent" the indigenous species while actually being completely under the thumb of the human politicians. Eventually, that relationship is exploited in order to justify the elimination of democratic rule in the Republic more generally.

In retrospect, the reason the prequel movies make little narrative sense is that the Republic and the Jedi Order are actually the villains.
See,
This is like watching Dune the Movie before reading Dune the books.

There is no way you would pick up the narrative by watching a sweaty Sting fight with a knife.

yeah but I am the Kwisatz Haderach.

I thought the sun was just going to go red giant and then collapse into a dwarf.  not massive enough to be a neutron star.

That asteroid was the best thing that ever happened to this dumb planet.

no, the best thing that will ever happen to this planet is the next asteroid

Honestly you are overlooking the collapse of the sun into a neutron star.

Chelsea Manning is a fucking whack job lunatic, an unqualified idiot, and a mentally unhinged asshat who gave away secrets in a bid for attention.  Anyone who votes for her is a fucking moron and should be rounded up and placed in a gulag for reeducation, preferably via tear gas and fire hose.

guys can I still change my position ITT?

one of em also seems to have a bit of a harelip.

I for one am excited to see another senator with the sort of good responsible judgement that leads one to hand over bulk uncensored diplomatic cables to a Russian agent, getting a number of people killed.

Because you don't have a background in investment banking.

If you were rich you might have a chance if you weren't a darker-skinned woman.

my guess is they're just priming the pump for P.I.S.S.T.A.P.E.

Also giving some serious consideration to the "from my point of view, the Jedi are evil" thing actually makes the overall Gone With the Wind thematic choices of Clones and Sith a lot more palatable.

This is C-3PO. He's a protocol droid to help Mom.

8 year old internalizes the lessons of slavery, particularly when the people who are supposed to be fighting on the side of good and justice see him as nothing but a pest. He vaguely understands that the purpose of a droid is to make slavery obsolete, so he's trying to help his mother by rebuilding a droid that will make it so his master doesn't need her anymore.

There is a sick logic to this and it really pulls Phantom Menace out of the quagmire of shit. It's still a bad film but it is not the utter heap of horse dung that it was otherwise.

Ok but we know that:

1) that won't actually work politically and will result in DACA being dead
2) lol Dems with anything close to a spine for something like that
3) Dems would get owned by the largely CHUD military

there are plenty of ways to fight a war that the US military would not succeed at.
