Re: Batman as a Vehicle for the Surveillance State
The funny thing about right wing vs left wing means different things to different people. It mostly depends of what political party holds your loyalties.
The reality is all people should fear those we choose to give power too, choose to abuse it. Both political parties enjoy giving power to leaders that we believe hold are believes but hate it when others are given power when they don't hold it. In the Nolanverse Batman is a symbol that corruption of power can't control us, he is not left or right winged. He is the truth that people should be responsible as well being respectful of what power we are given over others. Anyone choosing Batman as the proponent of an authoritarian state doesn't get the character depicted in the Nolanverse in my humble opinion.
