“If we knew when we woke up that it would be the last day of our lives, we would transform every little act of our daily humdrum into small farewells.”
Alexandre A. Loch, Laplatia

“Countless others, however, failed to escape the relentless pursuit of the auditors, who assured society that law would prevail. They hunted those who tried to circumvent their rules, which were harsh to prevent the city’s power supply from failing. The rules had to be harsh to avoid bad precedents.
Nobody had the freedom to spontaneously use their imagination. This was the order of things.”
Alexandre A. Loch, Laplatia
