A Small Part of the World
J Tobias Anderson

A Small Part of the World is a video full of statements and slogans. Which should we believe in, and which should we not? In an overpopulated world, how shall we find the true way to live our lives in harmony? Don’t treat the sayings of religous or political leaders as truths and let them steer you off your way to what’s right in life. The Chinese Communist Party’s slogan: ‘Seek truth from facts’ might be a statement to follow, but which are the ‘right’ truths – which is the way you choose in life?
