Accountability

Ep 101: Avenger Accountability

Cancel Culture Is Now Going After 'Captain America: Civil War'Who should Tony Stark answer to for Ultron? What about Scarlet Witch, for the events in Nigeria? Who should the Avengers be accountable to, and were the Sokovia accords reasonable? Paul and I discuss issues of accountability across many of the Avenger movies and wrestle with the age old question- Team Tony, or Team Cap.

Team Tony, American Foreign Policy, & the Danger of Believing You’re Right

Civil WarCompromise where you can. And where you can’t, don’t. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right, even if the whole world is telling you to move. It is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye and say, no. You move.” Sharon Carter (movie)/ Captain America (comics).

It’s a great speech, isn’t it? It’s the moral core of Captain America’s argument of why he refuses to go along with government regulation of the Avengers. I’ve heard many people quote it, and I can understand why.
