FROZEN FACES

“At this time, the Baader-Meinhof—you know, that armed gang that came out very left politically—robbed banks, killed some American servicemen in a raid, and all the rest—was at it’s height. Nobody could understand these people. They were all sort of well to do, middle class, well educated kids from comparatively speaking rich families, who all took to this ‘absurd violence’. Nobody could understand them. But suddenly I realised. My god, of course I can understand them. If you’re bought up in one of those suburbs around a German city where nothing is ever allowed out of place, where because they were so terrified by the experiences of World War II and the Nazi epoch, that they’d go to any length to make certain that everybody is happy, that everyone in school or kindergarten is dutifully equipped so there would be no deviance and no problems later… if you have a world like that, without any real freedom of the spirit, the only freedom to be found is in madness. I mean, in a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom!”[1]
