Darth Vader was in fact a brilliant Marxist-Leninist leading the dialectical practice of Marxism-Leninism-Vaderism which would eventually be adapted into Marxism-Leninism-Vaderism-Skywalkerism
Seriously, if you watch the film from Vader's perspective rather than the theocratic religious Jedi Order's or the bourgeois liberal Republic's you realize that Darth Vader basically found the dialectical synthesis for creating proletarian revolution in the Star Wars Galaxy
See, it makes sense if you approach it dialectically as a Marxist, basically everything Darth Vader does in that film is furthering the cause of communism up until the point that Obi-Wan cripples him and ruins his long-term plan. Consider this, in destroying the Jedi, Anakin destroys the main defenders of the Republic. In centralizing and destroying the Republic, bringing the Senate to heel, yet still keeping some bourgeois democratic apparatus opens up a window for working class organization and demonstration as demonstrated by the Rebellion. Anakin had realized that Palpatine's plan, though risky, was the best shot at wiping out the majority of the proletariat's enemies so he went along with. He also slaughtered the capitalist leaders of the Separatists, allowing for the bourgeois rebellion of planetary systems to take on a revolutionary communist character. Vader's own plan was not to be the Emperor's puppet, originally in Episode III he recognizes the threat of the fascist Emperor and conspires to immediately kill him once all the business is cleared up. The problem started when his civilian wife entered the fray with the counterrevolutionary "Kenobi", in the Kenobist White Terror Kenobi brutally crippled Vader, leaving him a paraplegic, Kenobi also forced him to endure severe 3rd degree burns all over the body, permanently damaging his lungs, his eye sight, his sexual organs, his hearing, permanently scarring his skin, etc. Vader would never be able to destroy the Emperor and the 20 BBY Marxist-Vaderist Revolution was defeated. Why would Vader even want this? Why would I assume his goals? Simple, the film told me. Vader never fit in with the Jedi because he was born a prole, he experienced a prole's hardships and a prole's emotional bonds, he was devoted to the people rather than to the Jedi or even the Republic; even in the Clone War Vader sympathized most with the slaves, the besieged worlds, and the proletarian troops forced to die. Even his mother died as a peasant. You can argue that even in the original trilogy had Vader destroyed the bourgeois Rebellion leadership at Yavin the Liberal New Republic would never have been created and instead the proletarian revolutionary leadership would have created the Union of Socialist Systems.
Long live the immortal science of Marxism-Vaderism, the Red Star of the proletarian peoples of the Galaxy!!!
