  • Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    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 Youtube 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!

      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!💜

                                  Noticed some misleading facts in the video about war on drugs, where it's stated that black Americans have a higher risk of ending up in jail for drug related offences than whites, even though whites don't do less drugs. That is very misleading because you don't mention who sells drugs and that plays huge factor.

                                  Love most of the videos but that one was pretty bad!
