Darth Vader as a Hero

A unique take on the Star Wars saga from Tyler Cowen. Try this sample:
By the way, did I mention that the Jedi are genetically superior supermen with "enhanced blood"? That the rebels' victory party in Episode IV borrows liberally from Leni Riefenstahl's "Triumph of the Will"? And that the much-maligned ewoks make perfect sense as an antidote to Jedi fascism?
No spoilers for the new movie, so read away.
