After Palpatine declared himself Empire, fooling much of the galaxy by playing both Separatist and Republic against each other, he destroyed the Jedi. People who feared the Separatists now were eager for a strong leader. Those who saw what was coming were seen as just new Separatists.

But those who were aware of what befell the Jedi and those who saw the growing atrocities began to resist. In small groups, scattered and uncoordinated, to large ones, until finally a full fledge official Rebellion was formed.

The Empire which had toppled an ancient Republic only lasted the time it took a baby to grow into a young man.
