Here's the thing. I'm somewhat interested in watching the clip so I can participate in discussion, but I DEFINITELY don't want to be giving this guy unearned views.

So... no.

>I realized that I didn't make a mistake. I was made of mistakes. People are made of mistakes. This is what people are made of. Remember that people are made up of stars, our own celestial bodies, what comprises others incredibly out of reach yet twinkling in the distance, preconceived and premature, and yet we ourselves are made of the same cosmic dust-to-dust. Always remember, also, the universe was made by accident. And it all makes sense, because she is my sunbeam.

Technically I guess he's not wrong that crime comes more out of poverty but... Batman isn't about real criminals. What, does he want a comic where Bruce Wayne just signs checks all day?

But Batman does suck.
>>
>>79691874
I agreed with him, without even watching the video.
>>
>>79691483
Even in the movies he's wrong. Shit, especially in the movies he's wrong.

The whole plot of the second movie was to put the good people of gotham into a position where they could make batman obsolete, and in all the movies it's clear the extent to which bruce is supporting cops, attorneys, judges and legislators to help clean up gotham, not to mention all the other charities and work prjects, like the fact that he's supporting every orphan in the whole city.

This guy's whining about shit he didn't even bother to think about or verify, he's wrong coming and going.

Well stop arguing as the solution is only a carbon tax. Think in a business way. Too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere? Set up carbon collectors to scoop up the excess, and latch onto factories a need to have one. That's not another pump into big government, that's technology built to fix a problem.

Taxes don't make people stop doing things, it just makes their already nickel and dimed lives harder. Saying a carbon tax will make people buy new energy-efficent homes or tech implies they have the money to spend on that shit. It's an entirely regressive tax and latches the poor further into wage slavery.

This isn't a new opinion. It comes up pretty frequently around here. Hell, even Batman stories have posed the question. It's usually accompanied with "Why doesn't Batman kill the Joker?" or "Batman doesn't make Gotham any better or worse, but maintains a status quo through simultaneously nurturing and containing villains."

If you had a billion dollars, then gave away 90% to charity, you would have 100m dollars.

Trust me, the heads of some charities are downright abominable when it comes to covering shit up. There's no such thing as truly pure intentions in this world, not when you involve other people.

def true. I would hope anyone with that kind of money would be smart enough when saying, "give it to charity", means, "form my own charity foundation, and put the money directly where it needs to go."
>>
>>79693308
Like what Bruce Wayne does? :^)
>>
>>79693273
Even without corruption, charities are often useless in that they usually throw money at problems to treat the symptoms and not fix the problem itself.
>>
>>79693176
Seriously, it's fine not to like Batman, but not for retarded reasons that only matter in the real world. And he was completely wrong about a lot of aspects of the character. Bruce does give a lot to charity, and he hates bats. And he's fucking crazy and his parents died, which is the reason he fights crime as Batman
>>
>>79693176
Probably comes from comics trying to venture into more "mature" realms of storytelling? Which has been a thing for decades.

>>79693186
He does, but that often comes across more as side-projects, whereas Batman is his full-time job and focus. It's not unreasonable to think that Bruce could do a lot more with philanthropy programs if he pulled his funds and time away from vigilantism.

Of course, that doesn't make for nearly as entertaining storytelling. Watching Bruce donate to school programs or open youth recreational centers lacks the emotional impact of watching Batman break a villain's jaw to stop a robbery.
>>
>>79693273
It's true that there are a lot of charities out there that are ineffective, if not outright corrupt. However, you're painting with a very broad brush to suggest there's no such things as programs intended to help people that genuinely work.

>>79693367
Treating the symptom of a problem can at the very least prevent a problem from dramatically escalating. It's not the best solution, but it's far better than nothing.
>>
>>79693273
Isn't John Green already rich? His net worth is 17 million.
>>
>>79691483
What canon is he even talking about?
Assuming he's talking about the Nolan Bats then he's wrong on almost every front
>>
His point is moot, Batman spends half his day as Bruce Wayne setting up charities and keeping Gotham on lifesupport, then during the night he bashes supervillains and saves the day. At no point, in any of the movies or comics, does he go to the hood and beat up black people selling weed.
>>
Ok I dont want to give this guy a view if hes an annoying moron so could someone give me a quick rundown on what nonsense hes saying?
>>
Why should I care about what this hack thinks

Literally every character he writes just talks like he does
>>
>>79694090
Your view is not going to influence John Green's life or career in the slightest. Just watch the video if you're interested.

He's more or less saying Batman should put more of his time and money into making Gotham better through humanitarian projects that stimulate the economy and lessen the motivators for crime.
>>
>>79694090
Basically what every other person who doesn't read comics says when they try to criticize Batman.
>Why doesn't he put his money into charity?
>He doesn't actually help Gotham by fighting crime
>But he has flaws :(
He basically wants Batman's character to not be based on flaws. It's like he want only Mary Sues with no depth. And he also has a deep misunderstanding of the character and states a lot of "facts" that simply aren't true

>If I where a billionaire I'd donate 90% to charity

>>
>>79691483
haha wow this is bad. he clearly is basing his whole knowledge on the movies. not even the batman animated show mixed in with that, but solely the movies.

bruce is constantly said to be donating his money to charities and grants to foundations through his company. it's not like he all this money and only uses it for batman, he's well known in the comics for being a generous benefactor to many causes in the city and his philanthropy is mentioned throughout BTAS as well.

of course the movies aren't going to have whole scenes devoted to showing bruce wayne being charitable to the city because nobody wants to see a movie about that.

>under-funded city like gotham

hahaha no. gotham isn't detroit, it's new york. it cares about the wealthy and shits on the poor.

i feel like new york is the more obvious allegory since it's said to be right on the east coast, but chicago works fine too. point is it's a big city with plenty of wealth, but the rich control the majority of the wealth and are often corrupt.

>>79691483
This dude is really very rich for a mediocre writer.
If he wanted to give away 90% of his money he could do that and make a pretty huge impact.
Saying something like "I would give away most of my money if I were a billionaire" when you're already a fucking multi-millionaire is pretty retarded.

Also Bruce Wayne does give a lot of money to charity, it's even in the fucking movies.
>>
>>79695262
I think Metropolis is supposed to be Chicago and Gotham New York

>>
>>79691825

But Bruce Wayne funds infrastructure in Gotham, schools, and low income housing as well as mental health facilities.

But John Green doesn't read shit about Batman. He bases his entire knowledge of a small fraction of information and calls himself an expert.

Also, his comparision with Tony Stark is incredibly retarded, especially as John Green considers himself a "leftist".

Does he understand that Tony Stark is a Randian Superhero while Batman actually stands for civic virture and helping the less fortunate? Nope, John Green doesn't know this cause he's a fucking retard!

>the sister channels with animated history lessons and stuff aren't too bad actually
His history series is actually riddled with errors and gets a lot of historians pretty peeved. He oversimplifies stuff to the point where the entire idea is skewed, sometimes to fit an agenda, sometimes because he's just ignorant.
