Every time someone brings up Hilter I wonder what the World be like now had he not existed or been stopped later.
What do others think ?
Things aside, I think it's high time this 'Hero' thing needs to be knocked on the head. Too many people become heroes too easily nowadays because people forget that whatever we do & achieve always involves others whom we could not do without in our life.

To make heroes less necessary we would need to stop
building nuclear weapons and the sophisticated means
of delivering them. We would need to ensure that less
and less nations get control of these vile devices.
We need to reverse this process and divert our
unprecedented energy and resources to the real problems
that face us, including poverty, disease, overpopulation,
injustice, oppression, and the devastation of our natural
environment.

In other words we need to enhance the life on the bright
and lovely planet on which billions of us share our
adventure.

Not a big ask?

And those that will be able to achieve all of that will
surely be heroes?

"Not a big ask?"

You must be joking!

We can't even get our politicians to act in an honest and trustworthy manner towards the people they swear to serve.

"Not a big ask?" ............. Give us a break!

Dear Foxy,

Heroism is not determined by what is achieved,

The definition of heroism:

having the characteristics of a hero or heroine; admirably brave or determined.

If one is able to achieve a goal in an efficient, sober manner without bravery or determination regardless of the worthiness of the goal one is not a hero·

individual,

Have a look at Godwin's Law in Wikipedia:

"... when a Hitler comparison is made, the thread is finished and whoever made the comparison loses whatever debate is in progress"
