Video: Luke Won't Forgive Anakin

How exactly does Darth Vader, a.k.a. Anakin Skywalker, get to be a "force ghost" at the end of Return of the Jedi? Think about it. He killed children at the Jedi temple. He assisted in the mass extermination of the people of Alderaan. He tortured his daughter, cut off his son's hand, and murdered his Jedi mentor, Obi Wan Kenobi! How does killing the Emperor earn him a place in the Jedi after life, much less without any training whatsoever? I mean, the last line of the prequels would seem to indicate that Yoda and Obi Wan both underwent some form of mental exercises to prepare themselves to return as "force ghosts," so why does Vader transition seemingly without effort?

In the latest Dorkly video, Luke doesn't understand either, and he won't forgive him for all the terrible crap that he's done.
