This is not entertainment, it's a digital spell. It is an opportunity for transformation. Within the span of 13 minutes, you will be taken into the dark collective unconscious of our times, exploring media manipulation, consumer cultural, political polarization, and other themes that emanate from our collective underbelly.

So much degeneracy.

Truly this is a modern work of art, no one can deny that it's showing how the world, or in particular, the United States is right now. And it's done masterfully. I can see and comprehend the creator's viewpoints with the visuals alone and mostly agree with whats being shown here, also liked the way that it showed how the next generation could be described as our "hope". If that indeed is what they were trying to communicate. However, I saw at the beginning a slightly negative connotation with the idea of vaccinating children, which I do think is a necessary thing, or if it was eluding toward child experimentation, which is something I haven't heard of in the US, I don't know if it's just because I lack social media experience or not but just wanted to point it out. Also enjoyed how they portrayed the view of African Americans, it helps people understand just why so many have a negative stigma surrounding them, its showing it's not their fault they ended up like they did in most cases, More it was just the environment. And the last part I wasn't able to fully understand the message, other than a "you need to break out of your shell" type of thing.

Anyway, this was a review from a just now going into his second year at college computer science major who doesn't bother changing his pfp, have a nice day all involved in this wonderful work.
