Incredible Speech by Charlie Kaufman Reminds Us: Things Don't Have To Be This Way

This is an excerpt from an incredible speech made by Charlie Kaufman during BAFTA's 2011 Screenwriters' Lecture Series. The video touches on how the world is built on consumerism. It serves to distract us, killing the human in side of us, leaving us feeling inadequate, lonely, empty and scared. One way to combat this is to realize this is not reality. You can make another choice; you have that power.
