You know, what's lost in all this is that the entire "Star Wars" saga is probably mostly taken from the historical time period between where the Roman Republic became the Roman Empire. A lot of the institutions and outrage over the demise of the Republic is very reminiscient in this film, especially. And, like in Episode III here, the Roman Republic did fall, and the Roman Empire rose out of its ashes.

Comparisons to America would obviously be easy, since America is the "Roman Republic" of our day. The question ever since 9/11, I guess, is whether our republic would be subverted and turned into a dictatorial empire. Kind of a silly question, perhaps, but, as the saying goes, even Rome wasn't built in a day.

Of course, don't forget, we were all cheering for the "terrorists" in Star Wars, Empire and Jedi.
