These poems and epic tales that depict them as heroes, but whose values would make the world a better place today? Beowulf is selfless and believes in the greater good for the populous as a whole. Achilles is selfish and believes in what is best for him and the people that he cares about. Today’s society is massively larger in scale to societies depicted in these tales. While a common goal to achieve what is best for the whole is great for a government, it would be near impossible for the hero, or one person, to achieve this.
When people can’t stand up for themselves. People can be selfish,cruel, and rude but a hero is being who they are are being there self, “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. ”(Oscar Wilde). A hero is themself, because if they were not how would they be a hero. In my opinion, A hero is there true self and are happy for what they are doing.
Vonnegut is implying that individuals are powerful but that does not mean every individual deserves to have power. Accordingly nothing can change unless individuals force it, but that individuals too often lack courage and strength, even if one individual has everything needed, he might be corrupted when
Chappie faced many disappointments during his life, and yet he was still able to continue hoping that things would get better. This ability to hope for better redeems Chappie in the eyes of the reader. It is important to have this quality as Chappie starts off as a very unsympathetic character, but with his ability to continue moving forward, the reader is able to do the same with the character. The issue with categorizing Chappie as an anti-hero lies in the fact that he does not do anything that would make him a hero instead of the protagonist that he is. He isn't working for any goal or ideal at any point in the story.
But then again some people may not think that those traits are what a hero should or does have but that he should be a different brand of hero like a smart person who doesn't go on long war expeditions. But really hero’s could be anywhere and in any form they could be just people who save someone from dying and there could be nothing really special about them. But they still saved him and that is what is important not not being strong or good looking but just being a normal person helping someone that needed

The anti-hero is someone who is characterized by a lack of traditional heroic qualities such as Idealism, courage and moral goodness. A real hero is the person who possesses all the heroic qualities all of the time which is in real world seems to be untrue as there is no perfect human beings.

A modern clear example for an anti-hero is Breaking Bad the TV series.
It showed that people can defend their country simply by saving lives instead of killing and that it is possible to maintain a belief, not let others undermine your faith, and be an exceptional, courageous human being even under extreme peer pressure, which is a problem in today’s society. The way Desmond was treated and the military’s response to him being a “conscientious objector” infuriated me; he proved through his actions that conscientious objectors are just as beneficial as any other soldier, maybe even more in Desmond Ross’s case. I think that the term conscientious objector is very demeaning and should not be the term that describes Desmond or other men like him; I believe, like Desmond stated himself, that they should be designated as conscientious cooperators, because just because they hold certain beliefs they are not objecting to serve their country. I have not seen the movie Hacksaw

Howard Roark may be regarded as an unrealistic hero because he possesses too many qualities of an ideal man. He has prefered qualities such as individuality, emotional and mindful intelligence, integrity, moral stature and practicality. It is unrealistic for a man to possess all of these qualities at once.

Being a “Jack of all trades” is often perceived as a bad thing, and if you lack direction in life it certainly can be. But if you have direction, and know what you are doing, being a Jack means that you sacrifice being the master of only one thing, to become good at all things. I find it much more valuable to be good at many things than just being the best at one thing. Researching the quote “Jack of all trades, master of none”, I found that the it doesn’t actually end there. Instead the quote is actually: “Jack of all trades, master of none, though oftentimes better than master of one”.
Harrison may be a hero to some and may not be to others because everyone has a different point of view and witness the situation from different positions. However, in my point of view, he is a hero because he had an effort, was brave, and his goal was heroic. In most societies what he did would make him a hero.

Each person has positive and negative attributes. Heroism in one dimension doesn’t carry over to other dimensions. Therefore, there is no such thing as a perfect hero or an absolute monster. Under the right circumstances, each of us can be a hero and in some other circumstances behave like a
The definition of patriotism is the quality of being patriotic; vigorous support for one 's country. To me it is much more than just that.
