Siths and Separatists

It's a few days old now, but Julian Sanchez launched a discussion about the politics of Episode III by asking: "Are the Republic and the Jedi on the right side of the war? Or, put another way: Why are the Separatists wrong?"

The Separatists "are wrong"

The Separatists "are wrong" because, according to the story line from Episode Two, their "cause" was manufactured by the Sith conspirators specifically to foment a conflict that could be exploited by Palpatine to accumulate more power.

Of course, the Senate/Republic were similarly manipulated, so this is one of those cases where there is no "right or wrong" side, at least in the public sphere. The real good/evil split of Jedi/Sith was all behind the scenes.
