Marvel Daredevil Season 1 Episode 4- In The Blood

Benny who is trying to save Karen from getting involved with his story.  Karen tries to convince Benny she can be a good source.  But he remembers the pain and death his former sources went through and he does not want Karen to go through that.  Benny, "My sources underestimated what people in power will do to stay in power."  

Maybe I am too negative but I agree with Benny. I watch our news, our politics, and see people in power doing terrible things to stay in power.  Even the ones you voted for.  I never underestimate them, even the ones who have a Jesus fish on the back of their campaign bus.

Wilson Fisk on his date with Vanessa gives her his reasoning why he is the man he is.  Fisk, "I am just trying to make my city a better place."  That is why he kills and strong arms people, to save the city.  In his twisted way he sees what he is doing as best for the city.  At the end of the episode we see Fisk kill one of his Russian mobster cohorts brutally with his bare hands.  His second in command, Wesley,  advices Fisk that this will start a war.  Fisk, "I am counting on it."  

No man sees the good they are doing as evil, even it can be clearly seen by others.  When man is their own standard they can call the evil they do, good.

Matt, in his black mask, tells Claire the reasoning behind the things that he does.  Matt "I just want to make my city a better place."  He says the same thing Fisk has said.  His reason is the same, his tactics are different.  Matt has an inter struggle with his tactics.  His priest represents his standard of goodness.  Whether he lives up to that standard is a different story.  And Matt fails many times to live up to that standard from day to day.  But many times he succeeds, depending on the situation and feelings toward the situation.

This blood war has only just begun.
