A villain is generally accepted to be the antagonist in any story or scenario.
Can one define light without darkness? or Good without evil?
I know this is not a new argument and neither am I trying to invent one at this stage.
However, we evaluate most things around us in relative terms. And such aspects as goodness and greatness are no exception.
(Before I go any further, do note that I expect exceptions in all and every category, however I am only focusing on a general and common trend) 🙂
Is a Hero really a hero without an adversary? Would we really accept political messages from one party if they were not opposed to another? “Comparison” ?
Absolute’s are relative. Debatable indeed, however go along with this thought.
I will not get in to the religious sentiment and rather on purpose stick to HR.
While we used to interview a batch of candidates, we would mostly end up hiring the best out of the batch, who may often not be out first choice if the person was placed in a different batch.
Overall the quality of our heroes enhances or deteriorates in direct proportion to the adversary 🙂
Enough for now. Would love to read your thoughts.
