“If war had no redeeming feature, no courage and heroism behind it, it would be a despicable thing, and would not need speeches to destroy it.”
M.K. Gandhi

Psychological conditioning. If this was really about health, you wouldnt be pitting people dangerously against each other, saying some people are normal and the rest are deviant, invoking animosity toward your fellow humans. There is nothing "normal" about wearing a mask and even if masks protected you, it is supposed to be *temporary*, and shouldn’t be normalized. A society that hates each other and itself is far more dangerous than any virus you are afraid of catching. See MoreSee Less

Bästa med skådespelarutbildningen var kunskapen om undertexter – Hur människor säger en sak med orden, men det motsatta med sin kropp och attityd. Kunskap att ha rejäl nytta av i dagens konstgjorda egocentriska samhälle, inte minst på "nätet". Inte bara makthavare utan de flesta förvandlas till ögontjänare, med ett intetsägande reklam-influerat ordförråd som främst kan alstra så många "tummar" som möjligt.

I en sådan tid behövs sanningarna om Livet framförda på scen Tillsammans med Publik, mer än någonsin. See MoreSee Less

The four basic needs:
Food
House
Clothes
Medicine

– must be cheap and easy for everybody.
That’s the civilization.
But, if you make these four things very hard for many people to get it, that’s uncivilized.
