How One Deleted Scene Turns Star Wars into a Struggle Against Socialism

A deleted Star Wars scene reveals that, at least in the 1970s, George Lucas understood that free markets make free people.

..."Deleted scenes included in the 2011 Star Wars Blu-Ray collection explicitly connects the evil Galactic Empire with the socialist economic policies of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union."

I wish they kept this scene...I would have appreciated Star Wars that much more.

    Thanks, me dino had no idea that scene existed.
    Me dino remembers seeing the first Star Wars when that one movie was just called Star Wars.
    Luke is fighting that final battle over the Death Star and saying, ":Where are you, Biggs?"
    I'm sitting there with my empty Coke cup and popcorn paper bag thinking, "Biggs? Who the heck is Biggs?"
    I got to see more of Biggs when George Lucas touched up his trilogy and reran them through the theaters. Biggs was shown among the rebel pilots just before the attack.
    Me dino was then thinking, "So there be Biggs. And that little bit is it?"
    Thanks to the deleted scene, Now Biggs is a bit better rounded out.
    Me dino is thinking Biggs must have been blown up by one of those enormous metal canyon blaster cannons early on.
    Wonder if that also got cut.
