Hero， the elites of our human groups， are all time alive in any level of social stages. But， following the break-neck development of various fields of technology， a serial of problems accordingly come to bog us， one of them is the exclamation of the phenomenon-dilution of the concept “hero”。 As what is asserted at top line， heroes are not vacant at any time， so what's the root of this dramatic fact？ Media， the media； just as a result of this modern product exorcises the long inherited convention of hero idolization.
In our childhood， what we most like to hear about is the splendid experiences of our famous predecessors， like George Washington， the primary president of United States， who also contributes large amount out of assessment to the final independence of the nation. Almost hardly to remember how many times having acclaimed for this or that miracle in his war life， and the ambition illuminated from his encouraging stories， we still， however， remain the tepid admiration even until today. While， let us have a look at today's conditions， heroes have been drawn by huge piles of information garbage， and the real ones deserved our fervid accolade even finally loses his favor by the collision of fashionable value-evaluate trend， such as the currents of idolization towards those film stars.
No deniably， the unique price of hero is now decrying， which never can be evaluated at the same scale as ever before， owing to the overwhelming power to concoct crowds of meretricious “heroes” by media. Information， the fundamental source of people have to every day rely on， is the major products like other commodities of the media corporation； then as a result， the quality and reality extent is wholly mastered under the control of the media propaganda， so long as the publication is strong enough， even sun can someday legitimately rise from the west horizon. How can citizens tolerate such rules of operation to be compliant to these absurd tricks and consequently become their allegiant followers？
And taking the instance of those who really could be responsible for the entitled appellation of “hero”， due to the overexposure of nearly each dimension of their lives （such as privacy， ordinary schedule， the sum of his property， so on and so forth）， no singularity can he or she gives to us to enable us to respect them at all. Most of our primordial respects stems from the presumption of their particularity or characteristics， which always occluded to public as an abstruse mystery， but once the born of media and the authorization for it to freely reveal every corner of everything， the mysterious ages are destined to not drive back again. Just like awakening from a sweet dream， people will find the hero idolized so many years is merely a person too ordinary to be absolutely discriminated from we these similarly ordinary ones. And with the disappearance of these veiled dreams， “hero” eternally eludes into the history of past.
From the principles of natural laws， not a single type of species can be originated as personal will， nor with the extinction of certain phylum， while the media is trying their best to challenge against these “gold laws” to evince his revolutionary magic. Nevertheless， real hero will never miss his merited title of hero if he equips the quality， I always believe， no matter what is he under the embellishment of the magical media and how lonely he might taste. （572 words）
