Scott Adams, who Kanye West has taken a keen interest in recently via a series of retweets, is the creator of the Dilbert comic strip, which started in 1989 and still runs today, appearing in more than 25 languages across the world. Adams is also a published author and has written novellas and a self-help book titled How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big.
Adams took to social media this past Sunday to film a 20-minute video titled “Kanye West Showed the Way to the Golden Age.” In the video, which has since gone viral, Adams described how Kanye West will be the one that leads us mere mortals to the age of enlightenment. “Let me tell you about the golden age,” Adams started off. “Maybe you’ve noticed that the universe seems to be serving up more surprises than normal.” He then described how these "surprises" all started with Trump's ascension to president of the United States. “In each of these ways, what we’re seeing is things we didn’t think were possible."
Just for context, the “Golden Age,” as defined by Adams, is “a time when largely things are going right.” It's clear that West, who recently announced he’s writing a book on philosophy in real time via Twitter, has a lot in common with Adams. “I think people are breaking out of their mental prisons,” Adams says in the first clip West tweeted out. “People are realizing that there are things that used to hold us back, that used to limit what we could do. Much of that was psychological.”
