Western Movies and Ethical Courage

from Conversations with Žižek, by Žižek and Daly,

page 108:

“This is the central concern of Westerns generally -- at what crucial point do you gather the courage to risk life itself? So I think that in no way should one dismiss the Western as some kind of American ideological fundamentalism. On the contrary, I think that we need this heroic attitude more and more.”
