This is the continuation of the previous article:
After many years I have started to look at it from different perspective. Before it was pretty and beautiful because I have created this idea in my mind and in the fantasy world on the mind everything can be beautiful and easy. But then I started to look at it from the perspective of physical reality.
And this is what I see:
1. We have also heroes in the real life but it is not so easy as in the film. The heroes of 21 century have to go to work to earn money and quite often they struggle to earn them. And apart from work - in their free time and using their hard earned money they do other things which ( in the film or in the book ) would be qualified as an act of hero. The difference between them and the heroes from the movie is that usually very few people know about them and they are generally unnoticed.
2. The heroes are usually not welcomed by the government because they are promoting the ideas which would make people's life easier and better and this is not always the interest of the governments. Thus the hero is usually an enemy of the government which in clever but "legal" ways make the life of the hero as difficult as possible. And of course the hero is usually presented by media controlled by the government and those who are in power in such a way that the majority of the people think that this hero is crazy, insane, dangerous etc. And instead of having support of the people in who's interest he is standing up, he has to face at least sour looks, ignorance and lack of respect of those people. And of course if the hero becomes too much of a threat for the government ( e.g. he is gaining too much support of the people ) then he may miraculously end up in the jail or if that is not enough he will leave this world with the help of others.
3. Standing up against governments is probably not as difficult as standing up against the beliefs of the majority of people ( although this is very closely connected ) and this is also part of the life of the heroes. There are many examples of if in the history of the humanity - e.g. Galileo, anybody questioning religious beliefs including Jesus. This type of heroes usually ends up being murdered.
4. There are 2 main types of heroes. Those who operate within the rules of the current system, supporting it and promoting it, become heroes relatively quickly, they become very rich and almost everybody knows at least something about them. Those who stand up against the system ( even though they promote real values and ideas which would help everybody and make their life better and easier ) have very small chance of becoming popular in their life time. Usually people start to talk about them after their death and sometimes even decades of not centuries later. During their life they are either unnoticed or as I said before they are public enemy and have to face all of the consequences of it.
