Mihnea likes to have a dialogues rather than a monologue, thus this talk is more of an honest discussion between him and the audience. He talked about his honesty, the honesty of other, how we need to find our own answer for the question how can we be more honest with themselves and others. How for most people it is easier to find guilt in others rather than being honest with themselves. How their music is sometimes problematic because they try to bring into discussion what they can do better, their mistakes rather than the mistakes or guilt of the others. And how for him it is easier to be honest when being emphatic. How sometimes it takes some effort to be honest and how honesty can not always mean good.
