Although seen as generating music, steeped with heavy political undertones, Munsch tended to steer away from political ideology and tried to distance himself from political conversation during his recording sessions. He said that it caused him to become easily antagonistic toward his clients. His views on political ideology were generally slanted toward Survival of the Fittest. In the brutal music world, it reflected directly upon the total outcome of a live performance and the attitudes of musicians, their ability to concentrate and adhere to his strict production requirements as was documented, in out-takes, and unreleased rare footage, from the 2008 film. All Grown Up, directed by Andrea Witting.

Munsch quoted: "Music tends to be one of the most powerful tools and mediums in the human evolution. When someone wants to cause civil unrest, peace, calm or confusion, even stressing an enemy encampment to its limit. It changes views, in society overnight. It's as innocuous as elevator music and also can be insidious. It's omnipresent and it's not. It's a communication tool, as old as evolution or creation. A tool to shut the world down, as well as bringing someone back from a coma. Also, used to simply say hello".
