Kidnap survivors and heroes

A person who has been kidnapped ("arrested") for breaking a counterfeit rule isn't necessarily a hero. Even though they didn't initiate force or violate property while committing their "crime".

A hero is someone who goes through that without giving in to the temptation to do the wrong thing, and comes out stronger and even more principled than before.

At least, that is the person I see as heroic.
