Brittany Spears shows us how short of a distance we have traveled and who we were as an American society, not all that long ago. She showcases the damage that our people are facing today, and this damage is a result of our past collective beliefs. We are the adults of America, today.

Upon thoughtfully considering the curious aspects of his story, there are many questions left behind by the man who wanted to save the world by blowing up society. These questions became even more relevant in 2020 and are questions we shouldn’t lock away with Ted.
