THANK YOU NEWGROUNDS AUDIENCE for giving my short a try and maybe some thought too!

Though this animation satirizes real life social/political problems in a slightly exaggerated way, the problems themselves stay outrageous and relevant. I hope the animation brings this with some entertainment to your attention.

But don't just take my word for it.
Check out yourself some of the sources of inspiration for this animation:

My computer screen turned blue and I had to shut off my computer directly after the message at the end of the video, it scared me a bit.

People can talk about change and working within the system to achieve that, but unfortunately It's not you who changes the system. It's the system that will eventually change you. My point is there needs to be a revolution within, and no matter what differences we have we are all in the same boat and It's sinking while be have some boogie mother fuckers in the luxury liner laughing at us Proletariat. Whatever you might think and whatever they tell you in school such as "America would not be where it is right now if we didn't continue to take resources from third world countries" It's a lie, and the truth is we only get what is kicked down to us and It's the business giants, corperate CEOs, and White House executives that are making the real money. The only way to change this is Revolution. You must spread the word of Revolution within America and keep your eyes open, because if the Revolution begins you will NOT be informed since television is owned by the Government along with the news and media.


KiWiArts responds:

I agree there has to be change.
A revolution of consciousness.
Educated and informed people who are aware of their true power won't let things slide like that. Unfortunately so far we live in the illusion that our education system provides us with the proper "educated". Living in a nicely developed western country makes us comfortable and reinsures that believe that we are informed and in control, when we are not.
Though there has to be change, we got to be careful not to turn radical. Great battles have been won without blond force. Look at great people like Gandhi and Mandela.

It's time to wake up...

You're content was really good. After reading the several other reviews below, I don't think there's much more to be really said. Like Piper said, there's a great deal of people out here who watch this vid, and see all the facts presented to them in public, but then simply turn away. They expect someone else to solve the world's problems for them. They don't think that their voice will make a difference, and simply accept the False explanations for events that happen all around them, from corporations. I won't go into the politics and the exact details of it, seeing that you've already presented that.
It's just truly sad, that people don't think they can make a difference. You can. Look at history, the acts of a few have changed the world in several ways.
So, I really appreciate what you're trying to show man. Keep it up.

I really liked this when you first uploaded it. Made me grit my teeth to watch so many being flippant and rude in the comments, but , I get it. I used to be like that. It's why atrocities continue, because they're just so crazy that it's hard to believe. How could something so wrong be going on for so long, right? A lot of us mindlessly accept tradition and culture to be all that should continue. Critical thinking is one thing, but covering one's ears, going "La la la la!" or shielding oneself and averting one's eyes, doesn't make it go away. Most of us wouldn't be as brave enough to actually stand up against the stream, or to spread unpopular word of what we hold to be true. So I commend you.

Thank you very much for your kind words. This really makes it worthwhile :).
I agree with you. I was and still am shocked every time I see people just mindlessly closing their ears off to critical questions/ thoughts (based on facts, not just some random conspiracy theory) before even giving them some thought. It’s really hard to think freely and critically if you get fed the mainstream opinion the whole time. Sometimes even highly educated people fall for this behavior.
I’m just a simple artist, but all this just really pissed me off, to the point that I at least wanted try to make a difference through my art. Even if it slowly gets forgotten now, at least I hopefully could make 16k people think.

I hope this might motivate more people to at least ‘try’ instead of being hopeless and just complain. Every one of us got a certain talent he/she can use to stimulate people to think about those issues in our society. Even if you haven’t found your talent yet, you always have your voice.
Everyone can make a difference even if it’s just by waking up and start questioning the mainstream.

Sorry, got a bit carried away…
Again, thank you for your support!

I think people are entirely missing the point of this video. To me, it represented a purposely cynical view of society to comment on the fact that we don't question our lives. That being said, it could just be an homage to other propaganda for effect's sake. It had a grotesque punch to it that few can replicate, and I dig it.


KiWiArts responds:

Thank you. Glad that you get it.
I agree, everyone is entitled for their own opinion, but I but I draw a line when people can’t separate their preexisting biased opinion from looking at the short from a neutral perspective. Beside the fact that some people just aren’t able to see and interpret the metaphors and symbolism in a social satire. It’s really dangerous to take everything literal, but I guess that’s why there are also so many social fanatics out there, who can't properly interpret their holy scriptures either.
