The Entertainment Industry, the opiate of the masses, is betting that we don’t care.

I think we do care, and deeply—about our right to read reality, and see what’s actually happening—to know the truth, whether it’s beautiful or horrifying.

We need places that are safe space for unsafe conversations. Where you can go disagree, learn, have your life changed, have tough dialogue without anyone getting mean, aggressive, nasty, personal.

We all want an enlightened society. A happy, fair world. And we can all work toward that. Without information, without knowledge, without journalism or truth-seeking…we can’t see how to get there.
