A lot of Western fiction goes along the lines of:
the world’s in danger and since you’re God’s chosen person, only you can save the world. You don’t require that much assistance from anybody else because you pulled yourself up by your own bootstraps
Even if it involves a team, it’s like a team off like 10 people, that the protagonist had to pull together in some way shape or form due to their personal charisma or something.
In real life, to take down the evil dictator or whatever it needs a lot more than 10 people, and since you’re not God’s chosen person, you could even die.
Additionally a lot of Western fiction places big emphasis on money. The protagonist will have access to very expensive equipment frequently.
The evil dictator is basically straight out of a psych ward, which I guess is not offend conservatives, but It’s rare that the evil dictator is even racist. Like Trump would make a great villain.
This is kind of a follow-up to my personal branding question. But basically protagonists have done a great job with personal branding.
I think it would help our cause a lot if there was fiction that emphasized basically the opposite of what I listed above. And it should go mainstream.
Any examples of good fiction? Especially if it’s free and visual
Are you an Anarchist? The answer might surprise you!
even if he’s not the chosen one, shevek is basically the only and main one of the story.
