For Mother’s Day, my wife wanted to go see “Captain America – Civil War.”
She’s a fan of Iron Man (which probably says something about me).
I just went to watch the movie.
Afterward, I concluded that Captain America is a lot like Donald Trump.
The plot has the United Nations trying to impose restraints on the Avengers.
Too many people get killed and maimed when they go to solve a problem, the UN Delegates concluded.
Require that a UN committee approve any action by the superheroes.
Led by Iron Man, a number of the Avengers agree to be bound by such restrictions.
But, not Captain America.
He and some colleagues are going to follow their own consciences.
Eventually, Iron Man and the others come around to Captain America’s point of view.
I can’t imagine Donald Trump ever allowing the UN to control any part of American policy.
