Modern culture loves to celebrate the visible strength of the hugely successful. We look up to them as heroes. We want to emulate them. We want to reproduce that success because it looks shiny and it gets admired a lot. At award ceremonies, we see the breathtaking performances, and the triumph of winning. At the Queen’s jubilee, we see the influence and the majesty surrounding decades of faithful service. On Instagram, we see the carefully and artistically curated filters and layouts of the tidy desk and the perfect selfie, and the thousands of followers. And this is what we want.
