THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, I have been reading your website for about 6 months. I have to say, in all sincerity, The Dirty is true genius. I am a college professor that teaches classes on postmodernism, popular culture, and sociology. I was directed to your website after a group discussion in one of my lectures. I view your website almost as a social experiment. I also think it’s eye-opening that you have exposed an area of our culture/society that is part of what America has become. What really shocks me is the hate-mail you receive. I can’t understand why the very people that your site caters to or embodies, act disgusted by your posts. While these people crave celebrity and infamy, they seem to want to punish you for giving them the negative attention their actions perpetuate. I want to say thank you for proving my long-time theory: people today have zero introspection. They have no accountability, and worst of all, no understanding of what our culture has become by their own actions. Nik, you may be one of the great modern day satirists. Thank you for doing what you do and giving faculty members at MidWestern University something to laugh and debate about. Like I said previously, it’s pure genius. Now for your next project…start lecturing at universities in sociology classes. Believe me, some of us would love to have you. Attendance to our lectures would go through the roof.
I am ready when you are. People do not see the big picture with my vision and I would love to discuss it with the future generation… hopefully save some lives in the process.- nik
