The Figured Icon

What is it that truly determines the integrity of a public icon, is it his or her diction, visual appeal, accomplishments, or standing in society? To become "iconic" is to become an important symbol in a variety of both marketable, and influential ways, creating a long list of beneficial possibilities. A question remains yet still to whom or what these benefits directly effect, and of what true purpose this figure poses.

Through out history the greatest feats of man kind were influenced by such men and women of iconic standing, and with their popularity and leverage over society made these their goals fact. As time passes by more take the role as an icon and use this power to continue the growth of history, yet the question still remains as to what truly determines the integrity of a public icon?

In the past hundred years there have been countless individuals who have captured the support of the majority and their hearts as well, but most importantly their conscious. It is that throughout momentous occasions in history people will cast their loyalties towards the side with the most support and visual advertisements, yet another question remains as to the influences of those left unheard and unseen. What exactly are the pieces of enlightenment and direction missing from our world?, we will never know as long as we refuse to look beyond the attractive.

A true iconic figure lives within an individual with a voice and mind, both working together to accomplish the goals of aiding the many and exploiting the unseen and the untold. An icon can not exist through deception and trickery, for this abandons the growth of unity and true resolution. As long as a single individual remains unaffected positively by such iconic influence, then it is to remain understood that such an icon has never existed.

We as people must keep our wits about us when it comes to quickly believing what we are told regardless of what we are shown in the process, for it is our responsibility as "We The People" to challenge all forms of information consumed and those providing such things. It is to be remembers that it is the so called "insignificant" people of the nations who truly keep the home countries alive and thriving, for we are the sector in which most of all revenue flows from.

Understanding these concepts we must realize that our efforts towards our homelands have been overlooked and belittled to a point of disrespect, and yet to another point of keeping us close to further benefit. It is time and always has been the time to demand the credit for the progress we provide for all of which live within our nations, and if not given fight for it.

To end this article, better yet to end the message I say to you that there is no individual iconic figure for all whom inhabit this Earth hold such a title and should be treated as such. With the power we were born with, and with the potential influences that live within all of us we must move the emotions of those neighboring us to help in the struggle for equality.
