A very easy reading article published on http://elitedaily.com/life/villains-better-love-anti-hero/ excuses Hollywood’s obsession with criminal-minded self-centered debaucherous-liars cheats and thieves. With the brilliant deduction that
- It says we’re realistic; we understand the true fabric of what makes this country great, the flaws of the people and their selfish motives.
- that no one is perfect and watching someone perfect isn’t what we want to see.
- We love them because it’s cathartic to love them. They make us feel better about those lies we told and those acts of betrayal. We don’t feel so bad about our own mistakes and flaws when we see others doing the same.
Perhaps because it’s a truthful observation that makes this very story very unfulfilling. The employment of a “ridiculing evolution at a monkey trial” rationale; overweight people rather watch porn featuring fat people because they can better relate. Never mind that they are unhealthy and shortening lifespan, let’s further encourage their behavior by making a better spoon and fork. But perhaps what’s more detrimental is the forced psychological modification, of what should be recognized as socially acceptable and contributory.
Without an example of what is moral, ethical, humane, there is no ruler for those that see the world revolving around them as morons to measure. Nothing to strive towards other than to compete with who is fatter, nastier, crueler and more grotesque.
Scariest is the result of what we are faced with today. Everyone out for themselves, the very opposite definition of civility.
