The only reason Luke was able to beat Vader and defeat the Emperor. Evil, the Jedi are; a cult they are. Balance there must be.
What a coincidence! I was thinking about Star Wars. It like a quote from that.
If "strach" is "fear," is there also another word for fear that is related to the verb in "bać się?"
There's "bojaźń", but it's rather bookish, or used in religious context. Also, it's not exactly a synonym, it seems to be a rather different type of fear... but I'm afraid I don't know how to explain it.
Kind of disappointed that the sound of 'nienawiść' does not really come close to its meaning (at least according to my non-native ears and mind) like it does in English or even better German ('Hass' where the 's' sound resembles that of a snake wanting to scare you away). :D
