Another starting point for this collection was questioning the importance of the royal family in Belgium. This interest in the subject of power stems from the contradiction between Igor's ideas and opinions, since he is rather partisan of the monarchy but does not believe that the way in which they gain power is ethical, because it goes against the values of equality that are propagated in today’s society.
Dieryck’s intention was to make an analysis of the political game rather than a criticism of it: “This collection is terribly political in the sense that it relates the different games that constitute the life of our nations. However, it was important to me that it would not be political in the sense of ideas.” In his own words, Duty Calls is a mixture between the admiration he has for people who put duty before their personal interests and a harsh criticism of political games to maintain this power.
