He added by saying that: We were the last generation born and our personality was formed through the environment of ease, then, the lecturer continued the conversation on the subject of his lecture, starting with some problems, including facing reality and self-criticism, where he said that he sought to communicate his idea in a simple way that has a kind of irony especially since we are in a society that is described as serious and rigid and does not like ambiguity, and that is why the idea of his book “Spilled Ink” came about. He added by saying that: Let’s pour the ink and let what happens happen, and pointed out that for that reason he chose the path of satirical literature without all methods.
