Default Re: Is Batman going to become a fascist conservative in the Dark Knight Rises?

Batman isn't a conservative, but psychologically he is a fascist in the same measure that the league is fascist. This is only to say that Batman imposes his brand of justice and law on society without much care about due process or other rights. TDK makes this point when Batman stops the men in hockey pads at the beginning of the film. Only his brand no one elses.

There is a very ironic point in TDKR when Gordon questions crane saying that thier court is a false one because it lack no due process, Gordon being of course one of the architects of the dent act comes off very hypocritical in this moment. Regardless of his good intentions.
