Bill Hicks – A True Legend
Bill Hicks was a truly great man and skeptic, who’s opinions are just as valid today as they were before he was taken from us. He was a man years ahead of his time and his opinions remain relevant to this day.
His stance on advertising and marketing (kill yourself) was the basis upon which I started to get angry about homeopathy and the capitalist peddlers of pseudoscience who pray on the sick and vulnerable – even though he did believe in some fairly out-there stuff. I can’t speak for him, I can only say that his passionate values and opinions of marketers, killing people for financial gain has been a constant source of inspiration for me.
Any time I wonder if I’m doing the right thing, he’s in my head keeping me on the straight and narrow. For that, I’m eternally poor but eternally grateful. He remains my moral compass and an inspirational figure.
Bill Hicks was a legend and will never be forgotten.
