Let's start with the closing scene.
There is a post-credits scene, which validates everything else being said previously in the film, but first we will do the last, proper scene, then the post-credits scene. John Reid, aka “The Lone Ranger” (Armie Hammer), is on the white horse “Silver,” and Silver stands on his hind legs, kicking his front legs in the air as Reid says, “Hi, ho, Silver, away!” in the iconic fashion of the Lone Ranger; Tonto (Johnny Depp) sees him doing this and says disapprovingly, “Never do that again.” Why? Socialists hate icons, and that moment—as well as the William Tell Overture played during the corniest part of the film—is intentionally meant to mock and invalidate the Lone Ranger and everything he stands for. Now, the post-credits scene: we see Tonto's back, an old man wearing the suit John Reid wore on the train into Colby, Texas, and walking into the desolate, wilderness landscape; why? To “undo” the progress that has been done in this country, to go back to a “native lifestyle,” to lead a generation of “suit” wearing Americans into a tribal life where there is no money, only trade. The Lone Ranger is one, really long lesson in how terrible white people are and how evil and cursed money is, and anything protecting and promoting white people and money, including the Constitution, dreams and travel.
Why a little boy?
Children always symbolize the future, and while women symbolize the “motherland,” so a little boy symbolizes the “future of the economy” because men symbolize the active principle of production. Tonto is instructing the little boy (us, the audience, because socialists believe that anyone but themselves are impossibly stupid and have to be educated, although even that isn't going to help people like myself) on how evil white people (like myself) are. Two points: the wendigo evil spirit Tonto claims has possessed Butch, Tonto realizes is what being a white man is all about: eating other people. That's twofold itself, because Butch eating the flesh of other people relates him to zombies (World War Z and Warm Bodies support this) and we see the film substantiating this interpretation with the rabbits.
Reid and Tonto cook a rabbit at a camp fire when rabbits suddenly appear, supposedly smelling the dead rabbit; Tonto takes a piece of the cooked rabbit, tosses it to the gathered rabbits and they develop sharp teeth like vampires and attack each other to get the piece of cooked rabbit meat; what's the purpose of this cannibalism? That's how socialists see capitalists (vampires, as in Dark Shadows, Hotel Transylvania and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter) and if you own a business or participate in the capitalist system, you are eating your own kind, just like the wendigo Butch. So, what about Silver eating the scorpions?
The "massacre of the innocents," is mentioned in the film, but even as it happens, we have all ready seen this in Iron Man 3, when the Mandarin talks to the president about the Sand Creek Massacre, because this is what's being referenced. As if the film makers had read the script for The Lone Ranger, Iron Man 3 makes the point that this wasn't the work of the government, but of corrupt individuals. Why is this distinction important? Corrupt individuals will always exist in ANY SOCIETY, including capitalism, however, the whole system of socialism/communism is corrupt; it was the socialist government of Adolf Hitler that ORDERED the extermination of the Jews, it wasn't just a few corrupt guards, it was the wholesale policy of the government, like the Soviets killing millions and millions of their own citizens, and socialists will NEVER admit this, but we have to remember it when we are forced to argue with them. In short, do NOT bother to go see this film, I wanted to walk out after 45 mins, then again after 2 hours, but you don't have to put yourself through that.
