You are all looking at the wrong image in the mirror because, the representation of who you are and how you ought to be is based on a counterfeit of your original being.
The death effect on an artist is a near-immediate upswing in prices of his masterpiece. The death effect of your hope is a near-immediate seizure of your dreams by counterfeiters: The vultures in your life. They are all over you. They watch your every effort of bravery gone un-praised. Travailing in your desert of lost identity. They lurk in the dark and wait for your last hour. They have wings but they won’t lift you up. They know where the closest pool is, but you’ll die of taste. They know where you can find Prickly Pear but you will staff to death. They know the shortest way forward, Yet you’ll remain millions of miles away from home. They wait and when you finally give up the ghost even those afar will come with tributes. Yes they can feel your sting and they have come for the feast.
How does these things do survive in such an arid Desert? They live on your flesh.
They are watching you, someone is waiting for your last hour.
A hero or heroine is a person or character in literature who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, displays courage or self-sacrifice—that is, heroism—for some greater good. Historically, the first heros displayed courage or excellence as warriors. The word’s meaning was later extended to include moral excellence. This definition has nothing in common with drama.
The definition of the modern fictional hero Stands in great conflict with the superhuman expectations of heroism. William Makepeace Thackeray gave Vanity Fair the subtitle A Novel without a Hero. The larger-than-life hero is a more common feature of fantasy than more realist works. Just as I wrote in “ Vampires and the lost value of originality” This unscrupulous media vultures have derailed your appreciation of reality and your hopes are all based on an un attainable world of fantasy. A world they have illusively built for themselves. Fashioning your desires unattained to perceive them as superhumans. Then you start to pose questions and doubts about your self. You fall into a state of inferiority complex because you want to look like the girl on Life Magazine or the boy on Askmen with broad shoulders and six pack abs. A standard you might never attain. So you are compelled to look on to those on the big screen as a gods or goddesses.
Do you know of a man called Frank Abagnale Jr. certainly not. But you all know Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks and you most have watched “Catch Me if You Can”. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks are major characters in this story based on the life of Frank Abagnale Jr. But we now liken ‘Catch Me if You Can’ to Leonardo DiCaprio as if this was his life . Alas! He is not the hero. Frank Abagnale Jr is is the hero (if that’s how you evaluates his stunts). Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks are the vultures. Unfortunately for you, trapped in their world of fantasy, you start attributing the wits of Frank Abagnale Jr to Leonardo DiCaprio. You add it up to his profile and they goes your FAKE HERO.
Abaganale receives a twelve year sentence for embezzlement, check forgery, and other charges. While someone told his story and was gaining all the awards and nominations at the: Academy Awards USA 2003, Nominated Oscar awards, Nominated Golden Globe, BAFTA Awards 2003,Won BAFTA Film Award, just to name a few.
Post-modern fictional works have fomented the increased popularity of the antihero, who does not follow common conceptions of heroism.
In classical antiquity, cults venerated deified heroes such as Heracles, Perseus, and Achilles who played an important role in Ancient Greek religion. And employed hero worship for their own apotheosis (i.e., cult of personality). Today, it is a different ball game. The vultures or counterfeiters are the most venerated. No one ever knows or hear about the true hero behind the story. They stand out as the heroes and stop you from believing in your selves because the exaggerated sequence of events becomes almost impossible to translate back to everyday life.
Do you know of a lady called Erin Brockovich. Certainly NO!!!! What about Julia Robert? Oh Yeah!!!!. Julia Roberts plays Erin Brockovich in this film. A true story about a small town lawyer and her fight with a huge corporation to bring community justice.
Erin Brockovich is our hero. Julia Roberts is just the Vulture, the counterfeiter which through the persuasive arts of the actor lures you, the audience to see her in the eyes of the heroine that is, Erin Brockovich which you don’t know.
« Heroes represent the best of ourselves, respecting that we are human beings. A hero can be anyone from Gandhi to your classroom teacher, anyone who can show courage when faced with a problem. A hero is someone who is willing to help others in his or her best capacity”. Ricky Martin
You are a Hero, Believe in your self, You don’t need those over-emphasize moves to make the point. Be your self. The guy on the big screen is just a drama of your reality. Do you see the lady across the streets? If she had such beautiful legs as yours she won’t be putting on such expensive heels to persuade the love of the guy standing next to him. She is a drama of your perfection.
For example, Karl Marx argued that history was determined by the massive social forces at play in “class struggles“, not by the individuals by whom these forces are played out. Watch out dear friend. After Marx, Herbert Spencer wrote at the end of the 19th century: “You must admit that the genesis of the great man depends on the long series of complex influences which has produced the race in which he appears, and the social state into which that race has slowly grown….Before he can remake his society, his society must make him. This is a real process that follows the laws of creation. It’s not a drama. Hollywood has explored the seemingly contradictory virtues of heroism and humility to their greedy advantage. Like the vulture waiting in the middle of the middle of the desert for our last drop of water to run out. They don’t want to know what you are passing through now. They don’t want you to tell your story. They want you to disappear so they can narrate the story.
Even in the eyes of God, their Movies and producers are not in the market to educate the masses on any religious concepts. They are in the market to make money through entertainment. Even God becomes like one of those boulders they toss in the fire to refine gold.
When Noah, starring Russell Crowe, hit theaters on Friday (March 28); The worst offense of the whole movie was the blatant misrepresentation of God, who he is, and how he interacts with His creation. Christians quoted the movie as awful, and denounced the film as “pro animal” and “strongly anti-human. This sentiment was not a coincident. Remember the motive of a counterfeiter is make profit. The tried to hypnotize your complete attention with Mysticism. Portraying Methuselah as a witch doctor( unscriptural). They forge a way to creat suspense by placing shem’s unborn baby on Noah’s death row. Making that suspense to drag into the movie. The awful sentiment you felt was not a coincident. The intention to make Russell Crowe a hero could not work without making God a lesser subject in the movie.
God is portrayed as a distant—unaware or uncaring—overseer who cares more about the animals than humans. Key decisions are not placed at God’s feet in the movie but on Noah’s shoulders. Yes here Russel Crowe’s portrait is amplified putting him in the position of a divine judge with emphasizes on his mental stability. That’s how paramount, fashion’s Russell Crowe for an Oscar and other awards in view.
The shameless lost value of originality. How the roots of human civilization is being confused by this unscrupulous money mongers.
The Bible does not tell us many details about the personality and mind of Noah. The most important trait the Bible reveals about him is his righteousness. a “preacher of righteousness”
“It often happens, nevertheless that when bags of money fall to the lot of aspiring genius, God departs and the devil walks in. Have you never heard that?”The Sorrows of Satan an 1895 Faustian novel by Marie Corelli.
First it was Vietnam now it is the war in Iraq , Afghanistan and somalia to name a few. The bravery of our soldiers has become hectares of diamond in which this counterfeiters bow as a source of their inspiration. When the true heroes travail through the hellish battles Battle of Huế( Vietnam 1968) Battle of Mogadishu (Somalia 1993)Movie Black hawk down, the battle of Falloujah( Iraq 2004), The Battle of Kamdesh (Afghanistan October 3, 2009), , This counterfeiters glitter and glow on the red carpets of manhattan feasting on the blood of a fallen soldier’s memoire.
You all know of the Lone survivor starring the well known Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster and Eric Bana. This was the tale of four SEALs: team leader Michael P. “Murph” Murphy; snipers Marcus Luttrell and Matthew “Axe” Axelson; and communications specialist Danny Dietz. During Operation Red Wings, (Afghanistan June 28, 2005) which most of you have never heard of .
We have heroes out there, risking all for us but, their bravery will all be consumed by some witty interpreter of events; the counterfeiter.
When Clint Eastwood’s Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ “American Sniper,” came out starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, It was more of a Bradley Cooper than a Chris Kyle show. How many people after watching the movie even knew a thing about Chris Kyle. Even if you did, you will bare with me that Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood stole the spotlight from the real protagonist.
It’s Cooper’s movie, and, although he has been good in pretty much everything, we’ve seen him in, there is a depth to this performance, we haven’t seen before. It’s a tricky balance: As the legend grows, the man diminishes. Cooper and Eastwood do an exceptionally good job of maintaining that.
Oscar heralds will no doubt dub it “The Hurt Locker” for snipers, but the fitting combo of Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper have created a thrilling Iraq war story that manages to both honour the necessities of heroism and ruminate on what heroism might cost a man.
Now the game is being played in your mind as an illusion? Isn’t it strange that the American sniper we all know today is Bradley Cooper. Everyone praises Clint Eastwood as the master creator of the masterpiece. How many people after watching the movie even know how Chris Kyle looks like? The counterfeiters have replaced the real time hero with and illusive fictional Character.
“Lions, wolves, and vultures don’t live together in herds, droves or flocks. Of all animals of prey, man is the only sociable one. Every one of us preys upon his neighbor, and yet we herd together.” John Gay quotes (English Poet and Dramatist, 1685-1732)
