Light and Dark are not absolutes. War has deepened the dark and dimmed the light. The beacons of the Jedi are as stark against the darkness as ever - perhaps more so- but they are a matchstick's dwindling flame that casts a shadow on the sunny day of their past and with no greater light to illuminate it, the dimming cannot be seen.

The light orders millions of lives to their deaths. The dark oils its machines and prints its circuits. In defence of life and light death and darkness overwhelm the galaxy.

Matchsticks smoke as their light goes out.
