Your work features a lot of political commentary, which I think is great, especially in the era we are in right now, but I have been told by some that maybe I should not put too much of that in my work, because you may offend people who could hire me. Do you see some truth to that?
It’s true! You could cut your own foot off really easily. I mean, what I do is not for everyone. It is just like what your mom or dad told you… “Three things to never mention at the dinner table; religion, politics and your grandma’s weird hair!”
I remember this one time a guy got really offended with a piece that I did and it was a video I made criticizing the United States military and their role and destabilization in many regions. And he had served in Iraq. And I told him, “Look, I am not discounting your service, you are just working for the wrong people." I am not saying the other side is the right people, but war, in general, is chaos.
A lot of things you see today are very one-dimensional and it is geared that way on purpose. No one really wants you to see the system that controls everything, and things would not run as smoothly without it. Everyone knows that there is a system that controls it, and they want to completely bombard you with information until you go crazy. It’s like a good balanced diet; you have to balance the information you get. With social media, you get bombarded with so much information that you end sounding like Alex Jones! People listen to him and they forget that even if these conspiracy theories are true, how is that going to affect your day-to-day life? There is some giant weather machine that controls everything in the world, what are you going to do with that? The most important thing is to heal yourself, not kill yourself.
