If Wrong?

Heath Ledger's Joker in 'The Dark Knight' challenges the idea of the villain. His justifications aren't what would be expected. Like greed. Instead he burns the money. Morality isn't as clear as we would like to think. 'Batman v Superman' also shows the unintended consequences, even with the best intentions, of someone being an effective benevolent dictator. Giving the person you like power, means a person you don't like could have that power. Starting with protection against the possibility that you wrong, in a world where very smart, good, and hard working people see things very differently is a good base.
