|From Anarcha Perspective
The Dark Knight: Forecast & Weather Patterns (an @nalysis)
This movie starts out with the cover up of Harvey Dent. (Bear with me I’m using a plot summary to help speed this up). Harvey Dent is the socially acceptable version of Batman. He thinks he’s fighting for justice but while fighting with his last breath, it corrupts him. Then, via Joker, becomes Two-Face (in case you didn’t see the film before this one). Why two-faced? On one side he is the hero Harvey Dent, on the other he is the very thing that he hates, corruption and crime. Batman is similar because although he has very clear cut morals, he is still going against the law to do what he feels is right. Essentially Batman is a criminal, which is how the government and majority of Gotham feels; he has alot in common with Harvey. So Harvey Dent’s character is paralleled with Batman. (i.e. what is socially acceptable, what is not? what are morals? is the law ethical?) This is why I dissected this movie on anarchist principals – aren’t anarchists the ones who essentially fight for justice while simultaneously opposing the law?
