Post 471 : Why so serious, son?

Saw the Dark Knight twice in the last week. Its dark, but its heart is in the right place.

The irony of the (similarity between the war in Gotham and the ) ongoing attack on Mumbai was not lost on me. It was interesting to see Batman refusing to kill the joker inspite of the evil he perpetrates.

There is a story there..
Of good versus evil, of what drives rage and rampage, of how behind every terror is a man(woman) who has lost the ability to think rationally and who sees apocalypse as a philosophical constituency.

There is a lesson there...
The innate goodness of living beings (humans and animals) cannot be overshadowed by a few freaking nutcases. Balls to them, screw the defective pieces, the rest of mankind wants to be good.

There is a big question there...
When we look at evil in the eye, do we give in, do we for purposes of waging a war, reduce ourselves to ranks of the evil muppets?

I know my answer, and will stick to my rules. You, on the other hand, can choose to be Harvey Dent, if that is what it is going to come down to.
