I guess Batman can’t be blamed for gun violence by the NRA…..
With that said, it is extraordinary how repressed and fearful American society was even up till the 1950s.
This is a paradox for me in my understanding. The USA being as free as any nation has ever been in terms of expression is also more repressed than other nations when it comes to sexual taboos and also more fearful (Satanic panics of the 1980s and early 90s, the teen delinquency scare of the 1950s, etc). How can a free society be so afraid of freedom?
