    Do you want to talk with us about this video? We’ll do a sort of Q&A or AMA or whatever in our subreddit:
    The Addiction and the Refugee videos will be online for 12 more hours before we delete them. This should be enough time for enough people to download them. Feel free to upload them elsewhere, but NOT on TheXvid and NOT on Facebook. We’ll take them down on those two platforms because we don’t want people to monetize them or use them as viral content. Everywhere else is ok though!

      I like your videos but I’m confused how you came up with the name kurgezagt

      Would it be rude to ask you to do a video on psychological problems and ways that can help?(like abandonment issues,putting up walls to keep people away, depression, anxiety, and the like?) I can never find good sources to help myself and ik you do lots of research on your topics!(this video solidifying such)
      Please and thank you!💜

    Thank you for being honest here. I must admit, when I watched the episode that concerned the refugee crisis, I arrived at a similar conclusion to this review. I also did not find it characteristically aligned with your more objective material. Anyway, enough said. I love the greater portion of your work, and consider your more recent output excellent and in particular a godsend that you do not saturate it with adverts.
    Thanks again!

    And the new addiction video is when to expected to come out? Can't wait for it! Especially as it would be so useful in my work as school social worker, especially to sensitize teachers (I used to use the previous one, with telling it's just one angle, but worth to think about).

    I think it's about time for a video on civil disobedience. IMHO the only way out of the climate and biodiversity crisis. It's super urgent!

    If you feel its appropriate then trust but verify. No 1 person or group is right 100 percent. So if you defend them 100 percent then you are not only not trustworthy but are a robot that doesnt take time to think for yourself. People trust way to many robots..

    So we can trust Kurzgesagt to try and make good informative videos but we're still encouraged to do our own research as well and to not trust the videos blindly. Sounds fair to me.

    what about dinge erklärt - kurzgesagt?
    i thought the channel is simply the german translation, but after watching a few of their vids i found some differences like:
    -a few bad/ missleading translations
    -the two original dinge erklärt videos about milk and rundfunk (the channel is part of it..) are a little off.....don't fit the kurzgesagt standard i know and love
    -the addiction video is still on (and yes, it's bad)
