Nolan has the strangest affect on people. You know I think there's something very sad and little boy about him but at the same time the way he goes about everything is so awkward and obnoxious. He can never say the right thing you know? And I think if he just didn't try so hard and calmed down people might actually like him a bit more!
Since those who believe they need a hero/celebrity outnumber the actual heroes/celebrities people feel safe and comfortably justified in numbers committing egregious crimes in the name of the greater social ego. Ironically diminishing their own true hero-celebrity nature in the process.
