This piece was done as a satire on how society in general displays individuality. You hear in advertisements "be yourself", yet when you are being yourself around others, you end up being the odd one out. This allows society to spot you out of the crowd and make living a harder time for you - but isn't everyone else listening to the same ads saying to be yourself though? This is caused by peer pressure and herd mentality. Almost one wants to be the first person to be different, it can ruin "friendships" and affect your reputation in the eyes of capitalism and corporate culture, so you decide to be silent, and are indirectly told to be silent for the sake of smooth sailing.

Don't be silent, fight for who you fucking are.
