Why don’t you just give up. You know you’re gonna lose.
The bad guys win for most of the movie. Yeah, in the end, the good guys prevail, but look at the relative portions of joy v. angst. The last few seconds v. 2 hours? And how many good guys die in the process.

Sociologists have noted that attractive girls are drawn towards the baddest boys. Think cheerleaders & football players in high school/college. The “nerds” are left on the sidelines, in the band. It’s in the genes.
Bottom line is – good will win out – eventually. Meanwhile bad enjoys a hell of an opulent life style. The sad thing is, this has played out since, at least, the time of the Pharoahs.
99% serve, and die, for 1%.
Oh… and Romney clinches the Repuklican Abnomination with his “win” in Texas.
