Anonymous asked: In response to your shooting thoughts, I think the difference is that in the movie it was just that, a movie. They didn't actually murder people to make the movie. But people really did get murdered in the shooting. So there's your difference: fictional vs. reality. I'm not saying that the Joker wasn't demented for doing that, but it was just a fictional movie. Like I said, fictional vs. reality. :)
I understand the line between the two. But what I’m discussing is the fascination people have with such things an dhow quickly their minds can change. Yes it is a movie. But it is also a movie simulating death. It isn’t so shocking because it isn’t real I know. But Think about why people think the jokers character was so cool. Those characteristics could be linked with many murderers that ARE real. What’s the difference between being fascinated with the simulator and the real thing at that point?
