"So this is how liberty dies. With thunderous applause." So goes the infamous line from Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, the culmination of a long, complicated, and very controversial political story built up throughout the Star Wars prequel trilogy. In their day, the prequel films, and especially their politics, were the subject of much ridicule and criticism. However, as more time has passed and the prequels become more and more relevant, the time has come to take a look at the politics and themes of these films and their accompanying show, The Clone Wars. Indeed, the time has come to ask the fateful question: how does liberty die?
