To have heroes, we need to have villains so that the heroes can look saintly and angelic in the eyes of public. Unfortunately for us all, some heroes created villains so that they can look heroic.
When it comes to history, how does one determine the real heroes and the real villain? And how does one determine if the villains that have been portrayed in the history books are genuine and not made believe figure or something that has been cooked up by ‘heroes’ to make themselves look good in the eyes of the world?
It is a sad thing isn’t it? One can’t possibly really tell the two apart. There is always two sides of the same story. And like history, same thing happens in life. You can’t always determine who is the good guy and who is the bad guy. There is always a predator in lamb’s clothing, and one must be careful not to be easily swayed and manipulated.
Here’s a rhetoric question from me. As of late, some people and ‘historians’ from certain political claimed that Malaya was never colonized by British. If so why did we still need to ask for independence from British back then? If that’s the case, why are we celebrating 31st August every year as our independence day?
Cleffairy: I wonder how far the undeserving heroes would go to convince the world that they are a true hero? And I wonder how far these people would go to take revenge on people who refused to believe in their claims and punish people who have absolutely different opinions about them?
