‘We are all hostages of social systems that want to keep us in a constant and dangerous state of drowsiness. For the time being, we can only escape the systems of mass control, political and media manipulation in our dreams. Sometimes we truly “awake” only as we sleep. Thus the unconscious, first of all in our dreams, becomes one of the last oases of the inner and the private that can still resist the sistem.’K.M.
