The idea for this thread came to me, because of the few words between @Patrick_Hermawan and me in here and I didn’t want to let it slip completely into off-topic, but still continue the discussion and include some more! The CMs can feel free to move the respective comments here, if they think it fits better
So, the general idea in here is to name your personal modern day hero of any kind. Doesn’t have to be from the internet, it’s rather an example. It can be a politician, a freedom fighter, a milkshake or all the boys it brought to the yard! No need to be serious either!
And everyone should feel free to contribute or criticize or question these modern idols that feel rarer and rarer these days due to constant scrutiny from all sides, but are important nonetheless. Let’s start, but stay open-minded and polite!
Continuation of my previous discussion
So, to continue with @Patrick_Hermawan : To me Edward Snowden is by far the bigger hero since he’s a small guy, who’s seen his government abuse the system and informed the public about it while on the same time risking his whole life.
Kim Dotcom is some hacker, who imo thinks he’s above the law. He basically obtained his whole money at least semi-illegally or by questionable methods and doing something for the general public by providing encrypted services is good indeed, but it doesn’t rectify his deeds from before in my eyes.
