“He is the guy who wakes us up from anesthesia, after a drunk night, from a sweet dream; from romantic and holy self-knowledge, from national megalomania, from distorted history and even more hypocritical – today. He is the Illusion Awakening Diagnostician, but he does it without further ado, even in a rude manner, sometimes he “bangs the face” – precisely in order to wake up, make the awakened person aware of who he is, where and in what situation he is, what we, God Merciful, we hate it so much, because we prefer to live our imaginary and mystified magnificence above all else. “
