Even though Winston Churchill is viewed as a great man and leader to many because of his successes, his decisions and actions to achieve that goal and get him to that position were not always ethical. Churchill’s leadership might have resulted in a victory, but to quote historian Jörg Friedrich, “this was no heroic victory” and therefore great men are never good
The poem of Beowulf focuses on the ideal Anglo-Saxon hero of Beowulf and explores the meaning of heroism. Throughout time, it is clear the definition of a hero has changed, there have been significant modification in what a hero’s morals are as well as their true intentions. Beliefs in today’s society pursue the idea that Beowulf would not be in the parameters of what we may consider a heroic individual. The perfect hero in today’s standards would be an unselfish individual, one who would not worry about materialistic things such as wealth but instead their focus would be on others, in different ways they can assist people and or change their lives for the better. In the Anglo-Saxon time period the idea of lof, fame after death, and wealth were goals of people who wanted
Though Winston Churchill may be well known, his heroic qualities that made him famous are not. It was Churchill's ability to think about the world, it was his stark realism, and his leadership and humanity that made him such a great hero.
What values might Odysseus have represented? Does Telemachus possess the same ones so far? In book nine line 500 it shows how Odysseus values are “great hearted spirit” Odysseus also goes to say that he is an angry heart shows shameful values. However, in book nine line 505 it goes to say that Telemachus is a “good man” and that his values are “soothsaying” therefore I don’t believe that there values are the same so far. What is the discrepancy between these two meanings of the word, hero?

His motive are more narcissistic than most, wanting only to be liked, makes him a manipulative liar. Trump also using artifice to draw attention from one area he lacks to another that makes him look worthy of his presidential status. While everyone's intentions are different whilst using artifice, the results tend to be completely different. Even if the developments are good, artifice is still used by self-indulgent people, and that is why it is a terrible
As Creon expresses that Choragus is wrong at all costs, Creon shows the attribute of hubrus, to have overbearing self pride, saying he has the only right answer. Although he may be the ruler of the city and what he says is expected to be respected, his word is not necessarily morally right. In result of his own overbearing pride, he was blind to right decision he should have
“My view is that it is desirable to be both loved and feared; but it is difficult to achieve both and, if one of them has to be lacking, it is much safer to be feared than loved”. A ruler who has relied most of his energy towards forming friendships and confiding in other men 's promises, and neglected to prepare other defences, will be ruined. A friendship that is acquired through monetary values, and not through greatness, are within themselves unreliable when they are needed. When it comes to the military approach, it is best not to consider the harshness because armies are not kept united and prepared for action unless their leader is harsh. In these
In the beginning of Things Fall Apart, Okonkwo is understood as a highly respected and successful man, but ultimately his innate traits overcome his success and lead to his demise. Similarly, Okonkwo’s misogyny is exceedingly apparent and eventually Okonkwo’s masculinity becomes a defensive resource, therefore, his adherence to a masculine philosophy will order his world (Osei-Nyame 3).

If an auditor is, in fact, autonomous, but some factors imply the opposite, this might possibly lead to an assumption that the audit is biased and unfair.
