“there is nothing really right or wrong. only people on different standpoints.”
I’m not a hero. nor did I ever be, nor do I want to be.
because it’s pathetic. about how people contradicting themselves, and how people would want to act so-high-and-almighty to be ‘righteous’. and how people could be really driven about such. and how people could end up fighting and quarreling about the ‘right’ and ‘wrong’.
of course, we have law and orders. we suggest that they represent justice and equality and so on.
…but there are also things that are not being covered in that so-called law (and orders). it is there, and too much. and what constitutes right or wrong about such matters then?
and given such, we then could not really define what is ‘right’ and what is ‘wrong’. and do we really need that kind of hero in such circumstances — hereafter referred as ‘hero’?
I never want to be a hero. not really, not a chance.
by being a hero, you have the privilege to judge the right and wrong. you get sore to situations, and you take actions accordingly. you see something you feel ‘not right’, and then acting on your own to fix and ‘make it right’.
…but how do you know that what you are doing is righteous?
unfortunately, there is no answer to that. should it be written in law or code of conduct, then we might be able to judge — truth is, it is not. for such things not constrained by law, how can one says something is ‘wrong’ while not having privilege to say something as right?
by self-acceptance? ego? praises and thanks?
being a hero means saving someone else. but saving someone else means not to save another people. and so it goes, again and again.
I was never interested to say what is right or what is wrong, when it comes outside laws and code of conducts. there is not really right or wrong in such circumstances; only people getting hurt and people getting advantages, if any.
you can say that robbery is wrong. it is there in the law that controls society. you can also say that killing is wrong. it is also there in the law, thus people have to obey.
but you can’t say that cheating on girlfriend is entirely wrong — or right. you can’t say that lying to someone is absolutely wrong — unless when it comes to be fraud. you can’t also say that anything is wrong only because you disagree to such.
by choosing to be a hero, you are prepared to have enemies. sometimes it’s worth. sometimes it’s not. you are probably prepared for the name of law and justice. if it’s not for such? that would be your call then.
in the end, it’s just pathetic. people are only contradicting themselves. they want a hero, obliviously. they never need a hero for such reasons — only the ones supporting them of what they are doing. ensuring that they are on the right side. thus given the praises and thanks and boastful ego, so can anyone be a hero.
…or maybe not. there is nothing really right or wrong outside those defined in that so-called law to begin with.
is it okay to hurt our own comrades? is it okay to break someone’s heartful trust? is it okay to betray people? is it okay to hate someone else? is it okay to deceive someone’s feeling? is it okay to lie to a friend? is it okay to badmouth people? is it okay to leave someone behind? is it okay to hurt our so-called friend?
unfortunately, there is no answer to that. even if there is, it’s only baseless; how do you know that something is right? and what if it is obliviously wrong?
because by being a hero who (is supposedly) does the ‘righteous’ thing, you decided to fight what is ‘wrong’. you have your enemies then, but then come the questions: is it worth doing? or is it only that you are fighting those who are not on your side?
in the end, it’s just people quarreling and fighting over what they think is ‘righteous’. oblivious as it is, and they start hating then fighting whatsoever. baseless assumption. baseless righteousness. baseless acts.
I’m not a hero.
but really, humans can be troublesome.

maybe it isn’t right or wrong that we are searching for….
maybe we are seeking the ‘truth’. and we do things that we assume right. There is only one true God, he is The Truth. we are searching and seeking Him with our own paths and ways. And people do bump and violate each other on the way. hehehe
you feel so attracted bout this hero thing, dont u? 😉
then i dunno why i still got lots of enemies though i’m not being a hero, and not interested to be one,.. or maybe i just dont realized that i’m a hero afterall? 🙄
i think its not the hero that u want to highlight on,rather the FAQ that is why people do hate and violate each other by thinking they are more righteous than another,its a human nature though.. CMIIW… 🙂
being a hero=enemies,
than what should we be?
btw, ralat. bukan banyak sih, tapi tetep aja pasti ada,kan?
Ini bukannya ada di lirik lagunya Enrique Iglesias? 😕
Um, ain’t it chaotic?
Well, at least having two or more comrades supporting me
Holy book(s)? 🙄
Hmm, some zealots said it must be wrong when you cannot be thankful to God for what you have done. Not by ‘extremist’ interpretation, for sure… 😉
cant U just do righteous thing and not going to fight what is wrong? 🙄
Sure. U are yud1
Ah ribet!! Ma ga ngerti basa inggris,,
Yah, ga mau jadi pahlawan? Tergantung definisi dari jadi pahlawan itu sendiri kalo kata Ma sih,,
Apa orang udah jadi pahlawan kalo nyelamatin hidup orang, atau kalo punya kemampuan super tertentu, atau dia udah jadi pahlawan bagi seseorang by being helpful,,
Tapi yang dibahas itu bener-salah-nya ya? Yah, Ma lumayan setuju juga sih kalo banyak hal yang bener bener relatif, ga sepenuhnya salah, atau ga sepenuhnya bener,, Ga mesti satu orang yang salah, bisa jadi dua duanya bener, atau malah dua duanya salah,,
Emang pahlawan ngurusin semua masalah itu dan nentuin bener-salahnya ya? Cape banget ya mereka,, 😕
Bukannya pahlawan itu ngurusin yang gede2 aja? yang misalnya udah bener bener jahat tuh, kaya ada penjahat yang mau nguasain dunia, monster pemakan manusia,, *power ranger banget deh*
Sisanya bisa orang sendiri2 aja kali ya yang nyelesainnya,, Siapa tau bisa jadi pahlawan buat diri sendiri,, 😛
Tapi, kadang2 penjahat itu sendiri ngerasa kalo yang dia lakuin itu bener ya? dan monster itu mungkin cuma sekedar cari makan, kebetulan aja makanannya itu manusia,,
*mulai ga jelas*
Kenapa orang pengen punya pahlawan? Ga tau juga ya,, Ma sih punyanya idola,, Orang yang jadi panutan dan dicontoh,, 😛
*ga nyambung, dan tambah ga jelas*
Maap ya yud1, Ma ga bisa nulis serius,, 😛
It’s highly recommended for you to read one of Coelho’s writing on heroes. Anyway, may be the hero you had in mind differ from mine. You put a lot of thought on seeing hero and its relationship with other people. I, on the other hand, think we all can be our own hero and it is possible that the only thing we could save is our own private dreams…
the only hero in my life was my mom,.
how bout u Yud1?
