[rbticgnl] "lifetime of a hero" Mandela effect

"you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain."

it's amazing to me that this sentence is only as old as 2008 (The Dark Knight).

surely the sentiment must be older: each new generation must cancel the heroes of the previous generation to establish that they are in charge now, and to make room for their own heroes.

(Cancel Culture is also new.  is the concept older?)
