2016’s highest grossing film drove liberals nuts. Here’s why, according to Miss Liberty.

… in the course of the Avengers’ heroic derring-do, innocents have inadvertently been killed and property damaged. Now the UN wants to “oversee” Avenger activities, because it goes without saying that being under the control of a committee chaired by, say, Saudi Arabia is sure to make things better.

Tony Stark thinks oversight is a necessary concession, and wants the Avengers to submit. But Captain America (a.k.a., Steve Rogers) disagrees, and he expresses that dissent in words that could eloquently sum up libertarianism itself: “We may not be perfect, but the safest hands are still our own.”

As a proponent of self-governance, I love that sentence:

“We may not be perfect, but the safest hands are still our own.”

As Miss Liberty explains, this is also the sentence that put libs over the edge:

They had assumed Steve Rogers was a New Dealer returned from the dead to teach the world the glories of that liberal high water-mark. But instead (horror!), he’s someone who is deeply suspicious of concentrated power, even to the point that he would use his red, white, and blue shield to shove back at it. One almost gets the impression that it’s, well, patriotic to question state control.

Even though many liberals disliked the film — The Economist said, “The Avengers should agree to be placed under UN supervision” — I think this is a must-see for all Americans.
