Yes, very early on.. it was white until it turned black....... until some students started dragging their belts in the muck to 'turn them'

And, while I could claim I am the Supreme Uber Wanker of Wathknocka.... and perhaps even show 'proof' with a diploma or badge or award of some
sort.... I would think how one acts, thinks -- lives -- would show very rapidly the fact or fallacy of whether one was a 'master' or not.
Technically speaking, I do agree though... having 'levels' does tend to make teaching easier as all are 'learning the same thing'. However, I
guess my question becomes... does being able to split a board make one a 'superior' Jedi to one who is nailing roofs for a Habitat for Humanity home?
Does being able to recite a creed word for word make one a 'better Jedi' then someone who works at a homeless shelter serving food to those in need?
Does having a title make one a 'better Jedi' then someone who helps the adult illiterate read?
"We" need to get beyond talking the talk and start walking the walk so to speak.

Where in Star Wars were Jedi considered a military organization?
I think the entire idea of "rank" - and possibly it is the word itself - is what skews what is the actually promotion system in the Jedi of Star
Younglings were young children. Padawans were pre-teens/teens. Padawans had to find a master to move forward for the Master was one who was thought capable
of taking the Padawan along with him/her in their duties. A knight was usually a Padawan who the Master felt had completed his training.
It was an apprenticeship program. It was not militaristic. It was not social. It was WORK and DUTIES of a variety of ways including agriculture, healing,
archivist, ambassadorial, sentry, and of course scholarly work. It was a well-rounded education through the Master, and the Master's specialty most often
became the Padawan's - and likely these shared interests were part of the choice of Padawan to Master.
The "ranks" discussed in the Jedi Community are not "Jedi" at all. They are militaristic or school-based.
We all see the Jedi through our own eyes, experiences, desires.
Perhaps we should go back to the SOURCE - the classic Jedi that inspired all of us - and look at what they really did, thought, lived?
