When we first meet our protagonist he is asleep, dreaming of nothing. He thinks too much, he wants too much.
Later on, walking down the street, thinking:
“We need no state but a union. The absent leaders are in war with history and our freedom.”
They are all loving land of the free. They think of him as a traitor, committing treason by dreams. As a traitor and godless he walks the streets.
Our protagonist sleeps again. Self-destruction is the only way to salvation, a martyr for the working class.
No more controlling, no more manipulation.
As a traitor and godless he walks the streets.
He’s still a peasant, we are all still peasants.
