Opinion: Five Arguments In Defense of Stormtroopers

By: Dom Richards

Hello there, and welcome back to all you slimy, double-crossing no-good swindlers. It is that time again when I pluck some random Star Wars subjects from this incoherent, slightly bizarre, brain of mine and attempt to make it legible. This week I would like to take the time to defend a group that gets a lot of slack around this here internet. Are they perfect? Of course, they're not but, they are not half as bad as people perceive them to be. I am, naturally, referring to the symbol of the Galactic Empire. The legions of men and women from the army which enforces Emporer Palpatine's rule across the Galaxy. The Imperial Stormtroopers.
