HOW IT HAS TO BE - Francesca Lolli, Julia Wertheimer, Rahman Hak-Hagir (2014)
[Video Performance | 2:05 min.]

"For those who stubbornly seek freedom around the world, there can be no more urgent task than to come to understand the mechanisms and practices of indoctrination. These are easy to perceive in the totalitarian societies, much less so in the propaganda system to which we are subjected and in which all too often we serve as unwilling or unwitting instruments."
- Noam Chomsky

"Per quelli che ostinatamente cercano la libertà nel mondo, non esiste bisogno più urgente di comprendere il meccanismo e le pratiche dell'indottrinamento. Queste sono facili da individuare nelle società totalitarie, molto meno nel sistema di propaganda del quale siamo soggetti e del quale tutti troppo spesso siamo strumenti involontari o inconsapevoli".
- Noam Chomsky
