Ras didn't wanna destroy Gotham to rid it of crime, that's ridiculous. It was to strike a killing blow to American Imperialism. These people think global.
Actually, the League of Shadows under Ra's DID want to destroy Gotham because of its decadence and corruption; Ra's blatantly says so, and talks about the League also having been responsible for the destruction or downfall of other decadent and corrupt locations/societies, such as Rome.
I guess I'll have to take a look at BB again, but as far as I know, decadence is the lifestyle of rich people, and corruption is the job description of politicians. Most often, what with the circle-jerk between the two, neither is technically crime.
