“The Middlemen” chapter is indicative of everything that is wrong with the world. It reveals how people, who often just want to find a better life, are coerced into slavery and forced to work in terrible conditions that sometimes lead to their death. These abuses take place in order to overfish and satisfy the demand of the western world, which is infuriating.
For the most part, the horrifying facts in the book are hard to accept, since they evoke feelings of anxiety, stress, melancholy, and sadness. But I hope that my music can help bring attention to the issues so that people are inspired to help sustain the planet.
