I'm all for putting the disturbing reality of life forward

And for piercing the veil of bourgeois consumer society, a veil that encourages people to tune off to the world around them and tune in to happy time, that pushes fantasies of wish fulfillment and vicarious living instead of returning the focus to the obvious. The brutality and negativity of life as it is actually lived can provide a great antidote to the Daydream Nation mentality that the United States has possessed for a long time, decades at this point if not more.
