The Avengers Is A Conservative Movie

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The conservatism we are talking about in Avengers, in Star Wars and in at least the original Star Trek is a larger kind of conservatism. It’s one that recognizes that there is good and evil, and that good is on the side of exceptional individuals rather than faceless masses of collectivist drones (like Imperial Stormtroopers, or all those interchangeable creatures the Avengers smash to bits). Government power is to be suspected and questioned – there’s often a conspiracy of bad guys embedded in the bureaucracy. The only difference between Hydra and our Deep State is that a looming doofus like James Comey who tweets pics of himself standing in cornfields inspires ridicule rather than fear.
