Like many religions the Jedi faith considers itself a holistic
philosophy, covering all aspects of life on earth and indeed throughout
the universe. Inevitably therefore Jedi believers are involved in
politics, just like Jews, Christians, Moslems, Hindus and members
of other religions.
Ideally, for the Jedi, the world would be a single Jedi theocracy.
In this it would be similar to the early Christian Church, where the
Roman Emperor enjoyed dominion over the civilised world, and enforced
one particular strand of Christianity which happened to suit imperial
ideas. A later, though similar parallel would be the Medieval papacy
which claimed absolute spiritual and temporal power over the whole world,
later extended by Pope Innocent III to the whole universe (a claim that
has never been rescinded by the papacy). Another example would be the
Islamic Caliphate. Moslems still look forward to the Ummah - a world
governed by a single Islamic authority. Pakistan, Iran and the Arab
theocratic states are just small steps towards this dream.
In the short-term the Jedi must be content with influencing political
debate. While other religions concentrate on areas such as contraception,
abortion, fertility treatment, creation "science", euthanasia,
stem cell research, exposure of the human body, sex, and the preservation
of inequality, the Jedi concentrate on establishing a fair system, where
no-one can be discriminated against on the grounds of religion.
To this end the Jedi Democrats are seeking political recognition throughout
