We humans are hypocrites. We mean well; after all, no one wants war, destruction of the planet, mistreatment of animals, or the exploitation of children. But who doesn’t want the latest smartphone, the latest fashion, and good food? Don’t you?
In the absurdist De Moraalridder, we see the finale of a game show starring a desperate idealist. She is supported by a Companion who keeps quite a double standard. And then there’s the director who urges on his actors in real time to package their message as best they can, and who will intervene when things get rough. Because, after all, it’s still prime time entertainment: it has to be pleasant.
