"Aldous Huxley wrote about the idea of hypnopædia: nationalist ideology, non-stop distraction and organised lying; a daily pill you take. He set out non-stop distraction as the worst because when you’re not even focused you don’t realise what’s happening. We live in a very manipulated and controlled world where nobody knows what the hell is going on, with Brexit and Trump (...) There’s a huge gap between culture and politics now. There’s just this obsession with money and price. People know the price of everything but don’t know the value of it, and let’s be honest here - who said the stuff I burnt was worth five million pounds? I did. That’s how cynical it was" (daqui)
