The Jedi are not to be trusted.

I've said all along that the Jedi are liars and deceivers. After all, that's where the bad guys come from.

The prophecy was that Anakin (Darth) will restore order and balance to the force. How true this turns out to be. But none of the Jedi can begin to understand what this means. Yes, you have to get rid of the bad guys. But you also have to get rid of the Jedi. The Jedi are, after all, the primary supply source and training ground for the bad guys. Anakin/Darth manages to get rid of both, so he really is the hero of the story.

My point is not that they were liars, just that they were optimistic. Consider that at the time of Anakin's birth, there were 2 Sith and a zillion (give or take) Jedi. At the end of the third movie, there were 2 Jedi (Obi-Wan and Yoda) and 2 Sith (Sidious and Vader). Seems balanced to me!
