If you are really a good and heroic figure, can almost all of your actions be seen as evil by decent human beings?

Like in a movie for example, can we watch the guy that is doing all kinds of nasty stuff seems to be a psychopath, lies all the time, is extremely cruel and lacking of empathy, is extremely selfish etc....be said to be the good guy by most everyone who watches that movie? or is it more, if you are the hero, it should not really be that hard to see that you are the one who pretty much is the opposite of all the things I just mentioned above. Sure in some books or movies the hero sometimes has to do some bad things to the obviously even obvious horrible bad guys, the bad guys always do horrible or bad or criminal things while the good guy or guys usually do good and decent things. So, again, the question is.....if you are consistently seen as a depraved immoral unethical, corrupt, psychopath who ever sentence uttered is a lie and only care about yourself, how can you stand for good and be the hero? Take Donald Trump for instance? Politics and government

Aristotle once said, "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." Listening to others' ideas may not be easy, but it could be an valuable way to learn something new or change your perspective on life. “You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.” — Albert Camus one man's meat is another man's poison - said to emphasize that people like different things http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/one-man-s-meat-is-another-man-s-poison?a=british https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/us/one_man's_meat_is_another_man's_poison


no, i was reading the sad tragedy of othello. he was betrayed by someone he trusted, lost everything of value to himself, and died miserably. he lost to iago, the evil friend, even though othello was the stronger person. he trusted iago and iago undermined him and ruined him. what was the incentives which formed the motivations for iago's betrayal, hatred, and jealously? othello saw iago as truly wise and virtuous, and from this position of trust, poisoned othello life. maybe, it was wealth, social prestige, and political power, iago was after, or it quite possibly was the success of his "hate" for othello?
