Why do people blindly follow leaders and media even when it hurts them? This is a question for the ages and the subject of “Lobotomy.” There is a great deal of symbolism in my video, from the broken hearts, the poison fruit from the tree of false information, the tolling bells, the hunting fox, the blind actors, the black dresses, and the chaotic siren and frightened bird sounds. The message is deep and the wake-up call is powerful.
Throughout history, people, to their detriment, have followed leaders, propagandists, and snake oil salesmen like lemmings off the cliff. Today, it is no different but more dangerous because of instantaneous media combined with mob mentalities.
