My chosen profession has begun to look like “part of the problem” rather than “part of the solution.” I’m beginning to feel obliged to abandon it, as a matter of conscience. Do you see it this way?
You’re wondering if we wouldn’t be better off if your chosen profession didn’t exist at all. A young film maker once expressed the same reservation to me (unknown to the general public, film-making is a tremendously pollutive business).
I told him what I’ll tell you: WHERE WOULD WE BE IF EVERYONE WITH A CONSCIENCE GOT OUT OF HIS CHOSEN PROFESSION?
We MUST HAVE film makers like him—and people like you in your profession! We must NOT cede key professions to people who care about nothing but profits.
