I’ve been inspired

What does Obi-Wan mean by
What does Obi-Wan mean by "only a Sith deals in absolutes"? That statement itself is an absolute! Is he a hypocrite?

I don't necessarily agree with your analysis but i appreciate the effort
I am not a hypocrite.
A Star Wars theology apologist? God, help us.
Obi Wan isn't saying "Only a Sith says absolute statements". Anakin first said "If you are not with me, then you are my enemy". Obi Wan replies that only a Sith DEALS in absolutes. DEAL is the key word. A DEAL is an agreement entered into by two or more parties. DEALING is not simply talking or saying things. He's saying only a Sith makes deals with absolute terms. "Agree with me or die" would be dealing in absolutes.
I'm not pointing any fingers here but "Only a Sith deals in absolutes" is in itself an absolute.
