Re: Doyle is a Cunt.

The criticism that the occupy movement is unfocused and lacks a plausible manifesto has been levelled against it worldwide (particularly by fox news/cnn), not just here, and is sort of missing the point.

I kind of like Rushkoff's perspective: http://www.rushkoff.com/blog/2011/10/26 ... otype.html

No empire or clones. It's set in the republic (hence the title "The Old Republic"), which was what the empire replaced in the second trilogy. There are complex rules as to what is defined as "canon" in star wars. I can't be bothered explaining, so take a look here: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Canon
