In Batman Begins they were.

Hence their hatred of one of the most prominent cities in the world (Gotham), and why they didn't see Gotham as being "fixed" due to the Dent Act. To them, no city could ever possibly be "fixed", they disagree with the mere concept of a city to begin with.
Ehhh no they never said any of that. They had nothing against cities and organizations. They just helped restore them to balance when things got out of control. They said they were a check against human corruption for thousands of years.

It helps that Nolan expositions the hell out of his villains motives. It makes it easier to show how TDKR's LOS was wrong.

You realize all these things are cinematic translations of real things?
Yeah and all those things make sense. TDKR's didn't. Except for the Pit. The purpose of that was obvious.

The LOS in TDKR is not the LOS from BB.
Darn right. TDKR's LOS didn't make any sense and their plan was a bog contradiction.
