Ever since Christopher Nolan took over the Batman franchise in 2003, he has increasingly redefined the Dark Knight to the point where he is nothing more than Dick Cheney in a cape talking in a raspy voice and each and every villain has been demoted from super-natural cartoon caricatures to all-to-human obsessed terrorists with a grudge and WMDs.
We have put up with Nolan’s personal “war on terror” appeasement campaign and even allowed him to profit immensely from it, but now I say to you, enough is enough.

Let’s boycott the Batman.

Do you pay taxes? Are you not part of a Statist system? We are all consumed by it. I'm just saying if you don't come to understand this, or even care, the feeding will not end.

What does any of this have to do with TDKR or Chris Nolan?

Go preach somewhere else.

Read my OP. I was hoping to discuss Nolan's political implications, and how it may play out in TDKR. The immaturity that persists among most here has not allowed for any valid discussion.
