OK, we all know Anakin is the chosen one and that he is to bring balance to the force. According to Obi Wan at the end of Ep3, that doesn't mean becoming a Sith.
Or does it?
The will of the Force was that a balance needed to be made. Not necessarily the Sith be destroyed. Their are only two sith and thousands of Jedi. So in that sense, it was unbalanced. Just because the Jedi aregood doesn't mean that they balanced.
Could the Jedi Councils view on the matter be skewed? Perhaps the will of the force was Anakin doing what he did. When it was all over, there were only two Jedi and two Sith. Sounds like balance to me.
The power of the Force is insignificant to the power of the Fans
I agree with that. Thousands of Jedi and 2 Sith, there is no balance. Good outweighs evil at the moment. Then bring Anakin in the picture, he is to restore balance to the force, when he brings balance there are 2 Jedi ( Obi-Wan and Yoda ) and 2 Sith (Vader and Palpatine ). In one of the Star Wars Tales books, there is a story of Mace and Yoda eating at a Cafe in Coruscant and Yoda brings that situation up when Mace tells him the boy will be trained. Yoda uses salt as an example. He makes a pile of salt which represents the Jedi and then next to it is 2 grains of salt for the Sith. Then he brings balance by blowing away the pile of salt so only 2 remain.

It all depends on your point of view ... In Western philosophy Good is greater than Evil. Thus, No Evil = Balance. In Eastern philosophy Good and Evil both need to be present to be balanced. One is not greater than the other.
