The Much Appreciated View Of America


A lot of people don't want to make their own decisions. They say that they do, but they're too fucking scared. It's much easier to be told what to do. Americans talk so much about being individualistic, but they don't want you to be an individual because if you think for yourself then you're not going to be a part of any trend that they want you to be a part of. They don't want you to think for yourself. They tell you they do so that you're happy and you're stupid and you're sheep. Anybody intelligent enough to realize what America is, is not going to sit around and do nothing about it. They're going to be the same way that I am. They're going to be pissed. These people are artists. These people are musicians. These people are painters, sculpters, drawers, writers. They're taking it out on the world and trying to express it that way. The rest of the world, who are just willing to accept it, are going to be doing their everyday jobs, and they're going to be trapped in a rut, and they're never going to see it until the day they die, and they're gonna be disappointed when they don't go to heaven anyway 'cause they were too stupid to realize that it's not going to happen.

The burden of originality is one that most people don't want to accept. They'd rather sit in front of the TV and let that tell them what they're supposed to like, what they're supposed to buy, and what they're supposed to laugh at. I view my job as being someone who is supposed to piss people off. I don't want to be just one-of-the-guys. I don't want to be just a smiling face you see on television presenting some vapid kind of easily-digestible garbage. I think art is the only thing that's spirtual in the world. And I refuse to forced to believe in other people's interpretations of "God". I don't think anybody should be. No one person can own the copyright to what the word "God" really means.

And that's the type of thing I'm trying to speak out against the most, religion controlling what we see and what we do in our personal lives, even if you're not a part of that religion. Antichrist Superstar[the album] is a challenge really, to traditional morality and it's...to make people question that and make people think about different perspectives.

It's the whole Nietzche philosophy of you are your own God. That's why I debase myself and tell people to say what they believe. I'm saying to them 'You are no different from me'.

So in the end, the word 'Antichrist' ,to me, is the collective disbelief in god.
