Why Do Both the Left and the Right Blame Anyone/Anything Except James Holmes for the Aurora Massacre? “The Dark Knight Rises” Discussion, Part 2, today at 5 p.m. PDT

Planned topics for today’s show: Why do both the left and the right seem eager to blame anyone/anything except James Holmes for the Aurora massacre? Also, now that more of you have seen “The Dark Knight Rises,” and also, hopefully, listened to last week’s spoiler-filled analysis of the movie, we take more of your calls/contributions in the chatroom about it.

Today’s live show, and then later the archive recording, can be accessed here.

    “On the Thomas Jefferson Street blog Monday, Robert Schlesinger … characterized the film’s protagonist as an “anti-libertarian.” According to Schlesinger, Bruce Wayne represents a “repudiation of Ayn Rand’s everyone-for-themself philosophy, where wealth equates to virtue.” But this reading of the man behind the Bat mask fails to hit the mark. Wayne’s character may well be antithetical to Rand’s objectivist philosophy—but there is nothing anti-libertarian about that.”

    because people are preoccupied with “root causes”, which is all well and fine, except that it doesn’t absolve people of responsibility, unless you believe people are determined by there environment, in which there is nothing other that root causes
