So this document has been out for a couple of weeks now, I'm proud to have helped with the inspiration behind its creation. If you have yet to give The Empire Statement a read through, please take time and do so when it's convenient. It's still evolving, is catching a good deal of attention across the greater community, and is expected to hit a final edit very soon. All comments and suggestions are welcome on their page as well as here, I simply ask everyone to keep it constructive...

I’ve read thru it and what exactly is it for ? Is there a group somewhere in New York using this or is it a statement open for anynone ?
Is this some other sites or another organizations mission statement?

Its sorta a blanket statement for all Jedi, that all Jedi can hold themselves to... at least on a base level. It leaves a lot of room for the personal aspect and personal interpretation, but the base rules are there that all Jedi should resonate with.

A discussion about a lack of accountability and camaraderie on my facebook apparently from what I'm told helped to inspire its creation. It is simply an effort to help encourage more of these two within the greater community. It is in no way meant to be enforced. Those of us who have read it, and support it simply are stating as such...

I, personally, cannot think of anything that this documents states as not being true to my understanding of the Jedi path. I feel like what you did was take something implicit and make it explicit. I feel like I felt that these values were part of my joining the Temple. Thank you for writing them out in this way, it reminds me of the path I have chosen for myself.

Out of curiosity, why is it called the Empire statement?

The original work can be found here , Alex Bird explains the reasoning behind the name at the beginning...

Also, i feel it should be added, I did not write, nor co-write this. It was simply my understanding that it was partially inspired from a discussion I started on my facebook page. I cannot take credit for this remarkable work, just grateful to have played a part in it's inception...
