“He looked to the future with the magical idea that came to him that the trouble with his country is that the people have too much time to think on their hands, and looking for a way to keep them busy he resorted to the March poetry festival… and he ordered a free school established in each province to teach sweeping where the pupils fanaticized by the presidential stimulus went on to sweep the streets after having swept their houses and the nearby highways and roads so that piles of trash were carried back and forth from one province to another without anyone’s knowing what to do with it in official processions with the national flag and large banners saying God Save the All Pure who watches over the cleanliness while he (the dictator) dragged his slow feet of a meditative beast about in search of new formulas to keep the civilian population busy…”

Gabriel Garcia Marquez, The Autumn of the Patriarch.
