A thread for people to post about their heroes or what is heroic.
Some of mine:
Eric Fromm, I kind of think he's a big deal, really like his theories and perspective on life. An atheist but so different from what most people understand by that, including atheists themselves for the most part.
Orwell, I've probably read everything he ever wrote, most people are only familiar with his CIA or MI6 sponsored material. He was a more complex character than that, Winston Smith IS meant to be Orwell, he imagined himself a wimp who betrays himself in the final instance. His highly conflicted affiliation to socialism is more interesting than any of his novels.
Judge Dredd, last of the "hero cops", possibly Stallone's Cobra is in the same category and they'll only make any sense as heroes to anyone who grew up in the eighties before the on set of "libertarian chic" or "anti-authoritarian cool".
Jesus! He tha man! Here he is depicted riding a dinosaur because the question really should be "What wouldnt Jesus do?"
God. Jesus +
That's it for now, I'll keep thinking of more. Or more things to say about the ones I mentioned, I dont know. I'm looking forward to hearing other peoples and how recent or old they are.
