Soldiering On

Regarding the new Captain America movie, William Bradley considers the term “winter soldier,” used to describe someone who remains unwavering through difficult times, and how it applies to hero Steve Rogers who finds the “pervasive surveillance state and newfangled notions of preemptive justice” far from his liking:

“Will Cap be a “sunshine patriot” and summertime soldier who follows his values when it is convenient and slips away when the heavy cold weather comes? Or will he be the winter soldier who perseveres in his beliefs, no matter what he must go up against as a result? That’s the movie. Hence the title.”
