As a person continuously humiliated by mental torment, when with my mind deprived of privacy (as in -voices), deprived of freedom (as in - obsessive compulsive thinking), I found the same values that Havel found in dissidents whose inner truth did not allow to compromise with living a lie. Of course one should not compare a mentally ill person to a dissident, but often dissidents in Soviet Russia were branded as 'mentally ill' and stuffed psychiatric drugs (Haloperidol et al) to destroy their intellectual capacities. Years later, when my situation got stable, I found that after a human being is stripped of everything - pride, dignity, valor, merit, he discovers what remains - pure ideas, whether it be freedom, love, nobility, responsibility, compassion, commitment. These and other ideas are the exit from the Platonic cave. They become a measuring rod of everything around, they make us reach for the humane and the Divine. This is the pre-political, the state of genuine humaneness which is difficult to define, but a person consious enough knows when it is lacking. Havel's work is a super-structure in which the main theme - the pre-political in the humane is equally valid and timelessly important in the modern post-democratic times. It is very important to bear in mind what is it that defines this humaneness, and where exactly we turn into political cyborgs, in a delayed notion of collapse of the human spirit into a wretched digital manipulation of the cognitive cybernetics of mass media and power structures and 'system of rule' of the modern age, that by the means of inverted totalitarianism introduces exactly the notions of post-totalitarian rule, yet in reverse - leading back to totalitarianism by slow, hidden steps, in bright-daylight and a reshuffled sense of concepts of a different economic order.
