Society & Culture
We love heroes. We aspire to be like them. We adore what makes them great. And we want to be around them.
Yet, as much as we love heroes, we also have an adoration for anti-heroes too. You know, the lone wolves. The girls who diverge from conventional attitudes; the single-minded warriors. Anti-heroes have as much sway in our culture as the tried and true heroes.
But, why? What makes them attractive? If the anti-hero is not the standard of excellence, then why gravitate towards them?
In this episode, I take a deeper look at why we love both types of heroes. And even how the time of our life can be a big reason for it.
P.S. be sure to check out my Facebook live launch party with Dr. Robert Snyder and his book, Why Did Daddy Have to Leave? This book is a follow up to What Is A Veteran, Anyway? - a children's book detailing what veterans are and what those in the armed services do for the United States.
