Watchmen is a world of inaction.
Only two people actually do things, and its not the godlike manhattan, or spectre, or nite owl, or the comedian.
The only two who do anything are rorscharch and ozy.
Rosarch is the only one who realizes not only how insane ozy's plan is, but how easy it is to break. He is also the only one who even tries to stick to some measure of morality. Everyone else sacrifices thier morals, thier respect and the world's sense of actual justice to live in comfort. If that happened in our world, you'd just brush off george floyd's killers and suck some police knob for comfort.
He's not a good person, but rorsarch is the only person in diametric opposition to our villain (yes villain) ozymandias. He is pure justice, without order. He is the mob that you've spent the last two weeks slobbering your knob over.
Because if he isnt the hero, i guess you arent either.
