Preferring to be grass instead of an elephant

“A writer whines:http://www.motherjones.com/commentary/tomdispatch/2008/05/the-air-force-above-all.html in Mother Jones about the USAF seeking to dominate any future conflict (or, by dominating, prevent conflict). He cites the theme from Spiderman, “with great power comes great responsibility”. The gist of the article is elegantly summed up by this quote —

It’s very simple: “with great power comes great responsibility…” And he doesn’t want the responsibility, so he tries to get rid of the power.

Isn’t that the plot of Spiderman 2?


And Superman 2 as well, but apparently the lessons of those movies didn’t penetrate.
