This automatically tends to be associated with benevolence, which is an important aspect of a credible ethos. It is his personality and it is his life style that inspired people, brought him popularity, and let people be persuaded by him. For a speaker with a credible visual ethos it is also important to have, besides intelligence and good will, an upright character. A person with an upright character is simply a person with a positive character, which means that that person has a satisfied conscience and is calm in nature.
According to her the only way to end war is unmaking masculinity. She further adds that this kind of change is already in process through the men who oppose and say no to combat and transform their lives into a new kind of humanity.
