What The Big Country can teach us about living in a time of big data

The heroism of Gregory Peck’s character in The Big Country is his integrity- how his virtuous vision isn’t compartmentalized or polluted by the crowd or loneliness. What matters isn’t just what the crowd sees, it’s your way of being- whether or not you are fulfilling your whole nature. The Internet is very much another frontier, much like that big Country filled with petty busybodies in that epic western and I can only hope to act as well as Gregory Peck’s role.
