You're right, Ras Al Ghul basically were believers in creative destruction. They were like a suicide cult, but terrorists also. So kind of like Aum Shinrikyo, or Al Queda. But since Gotham was enjoying peace time before the appearance of Bane, I don't see how they can justify their claim that Gotham was corrupt and in need of being made over. One of the shortfalls of the film was making that point palpable. So it really just appears as though Bane and his henchmen are power-seeking thugs. But there definitely was an overt attempt to make him appear as a kind of revolutionary/robin hood character.
