Not every act we define as heroic is in fact heroic. Subsequently, those we consider our heroes are sometimes nothing but rogue mad men. In fact, with a few exceptions of true heroes, most rebels are unstable individuals expressing their anger and sense of failure outward. Those are the ones who cause chaos and complicate situations rather than find solutions. You cannot expect peace to ever take hold as long as they are in control.
The mad men are getting the upper hand because we let them win for a long time. We were quiet under the pretense of nationalism, patriotism, religion, secularism, feminism, freedom, and many other slogansOctavia Nasr
