In this age the only way to be classified as a hero is to do something charitable, or standing up for your political beliefs. Our society no longer accepts the war aspect of being a hero. If someone were to single handedly defeat an army he would be given a medal, but be upstaged on the news by the person who donated a million dollars to a special fund.

change is because society thinks they are doing the right thing by making big deals out of little things. In Beowulf's times one had to earn the title of hero, now they slap it on anyone who does something nice just to better themselves. I am not saying that all people are these false heroes, because the people I mentioned earlier were not false. They really did earn the title of hero.
