No, the idea was to show the legacy of Ra's ended up being Bruce & not Bane.
Bane arrives in Gotham claiming he IS the League of Shadows. Alfred is concerned that might be true. But after Talia reveals herself we learn that Ra's heir wasn't Bane after all. Talia & Bane are terrorists. Their motivations like the Jihad are deluded. Its not about restoring peace through destruction. Its about making Ra's chosen son watch his people burn, helpless. Again, this is an insane agenda. To kill millions in the name of revenge & jealousy.
The LOS in TDKR isn't really the LOS. Its the bastard child of Ra's ideals (much like Bane).
