We look up to heroes. We see heroes fall. Heroes are mythical, tragic and epic. We identify ourselves with them and yet they seem so distant. We compare our actions with theirs and yet they stay so down-to-earth. We largely define our ideals by the heroes we choose, and our ideals largely define us and our behaviour. Therefore, according to philosopher Scott LaBarge, we all have a vested interest in having heroes and in the choice of heroes each of us makes. Roodkapje wonders what it says about our future when celebrities become our heroes?
