I think I like the title of this article. And maybe the author is right.
If you want to have a hero, choose a dead one.Mak
And that is only if you must have a hero or icon. Once they are dead, it is unlikely they can create new scandals and all. And you are likely aware of all the shit that or most of the not politically correct things they said about a certain class of human beings. Living heroes or those who have such icons will be left always disappointed that their icons can be racist, sexist, dumb or something gross and it is so with the fellows in the article linked above.
What are you thoughts on the article.
