Portraying Evil and then Destroying It

Flipping though the NY Times the other day, I came across this article about Hayao Miyazaki that featured this quote I liked quite a bit.

"The concept of portraying evil and then destroying it - I know this is considered mainstream, but I think it's rotten," he said. "This idea that whenever something evil happens someone particular can be blamed and punished for it, in life and in politics, it's hopeless."

I think that this quote highlights not only the problem with a large majority of American Movies, but also one of the major problems with American Foreign Policy.
