    1. The lone citizen who triumphs in spite of, or against, the government and society only does so because he/she has extraordinary or superhuman powers.
    2. The rest of society depends on that individual for salvation.
    3. It’s fiction and it’s religion combined.

    Let me help resolve your conflicts. The Marvel ones are pretty good, the DC ones (except for Dark Knight) aren’t; the Transformers are just TOO DAMN LOUD and obnoxious.

    Does everything have to have a political slant? How about just fun for the sake of fun.

    Politics IS fun and way more interesting than sports. You got your teams, your playoffs, your refs, your end runs, your “we wuz robbed” moments. It’s wonderful.

    In this case it is fun because the fellow who seeks hidden messages in everything is conflicted on which message to find.

    Whereas, the Lemont comment is not dissimilar to the statement, “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.”

    It helps folks believe they matter.

    The truth is that they do. Not in a vacuum without interaction with others, but still each person can contribute to the betterment of Mankind or the harm of Mankind.

    When President Reagan called the Berlin Wall a monument to the failure of Communism, he changed the way others viewed it. Up to that time they had considered it a symbol of the power of the state. After that, they viewed it as a cage needed to force people to comply other than they would have normally done.
    -
    Reagan’s words had power in their effect on the minds of millions even as they mocked him for other things.
    -
    “I have a dream” reminds people they don’t have to accept the injustices of the present but can work toward something better, the fulfillment of our dreams. The Reverand Doctor Martin Luther King Jr inspired millions to share his dream.

    We depend on the individual and on the masses and it is well.
