I’m a fan of Banksy’s works, and it makes me sad to see how the media are hellbent on finding out his identity.
Some mysteries just don’t need to be solved. As long as a fellow creative isn’t doing evil by being anonymous, I think we should let them have their secrecy. In fact, in my opinion, he’s doing a lot of good as he is.
Have I ever wondered who he is?
Yeah, sure I have.
But, that doesn’t mean I have to know. I think sometimes, as a society, we’re so keen on getting what we want we don’t stop to think ‘do I actually need to do this?’.
Let’s save our newspaper pages for reporting the real hard-hitting facts about the things we do need to know. And by that I do mean facts, no fake news.
