Ka Fu – ‘Heretic’

“Turning to “Heretic mode” is my personal choice for the future. Our lives are surrounded by layers of lies from the power holders. The last months have shown it to me so clearly. Since then, I’ve been doing my own research on the main topics in the world, digging through different sources of information. And you know what? I’m getting a clearer understanding of how blind I was, trusting the things I see without checking them properly. In my opinion, some people are interested in making us fear to live with open hearts. So the way is to build our own circle of trust and knowledge. That’s ‘Heretic’s message.”
