"These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For"

Should Obi Wan Kenobi have told the "truth" to the imperial stormtroopers?

At the very least, it wouldn't have made for much of a movie.

By the way, in case you're REALLY struggling with this "moral conundrum", the actual correct answer is HELL NO, HE SHOULDN'T HAVE TOLD THE SCIENCE FICTION EQUIVALENT OF THE SS THE TRUTH!

I get your point, Jay, but the Jedi's are nothing but moral relativists anyway. With cool powers, sure, but relativists nonetheless.

Seriously though, there is some effort being expended to say that there were no lies told in hiding Jews from the Nazis. Makes it easier to hold the position that all deception is immoral.
