Who Wants To Be A Jedi?

Orson Scott Card has some interesting thoughts about the Jedi order, using as a jumping off point those who put "Jedi" as their religion on census forms. I remember playing Star Wars a lot when I was a kid, with a friend who really liked the Ewoks, but I don't recall if I ever really pretended to be a Jedi. My favorite toys were the Millennium Falcon, the AT-AT, and the Rancor Monster, so I'm thinking the Jedi were a little down the list. On the other hand, I've always thought that Jedi mind control would be really cool: "You will take me to Jabba," "These aren't the droids you are looking for," "You will buy me that action figure," etc.
