: : Is there a ministry of culture somewhere out there. After all this was all started by art. Then why not help undiscovered artists? Ladonia should, much more than any other country, care for the talents of the young. The future of an artist is unstable and not secure. That is why young people ignore their talent and chose something to study that'll give more money. I had to make that decision half a year ago and I chose the safe way towards languages and computers instead of the Kulla gymnasium in Höganäs who specialize on pottery.
: : Surely, Lars you should agree?

: Lars Wilks is a great teacher. He has ripped every single one of you "citizens" off - big time! I can't believe that people can be so stupid that they buy themselves a false identity in the "Ladonian nation" (how old is he anyway?)... You pay for his living and he's laughing behind your backs! That's for damn sure. Wilks doesn't take his work seriously himself, but you people do! So my dear Jenny, as an artist you must be able to rip people off and make them believe that you have something to say even if you don't. And you have to make PR for your work. Learn from Wilks, he's an expert. Why not a silly website, like this one?
Other then a bitch. What do you offer the people should they disband from VILKS? What offer of hope can you give other them a "slap stick" how bad Vilks is. What is so exceptional about yourself? Vilks is a suprising success story. Indeed, what is yours?
