Recent scary terror-paranoia dream: Sirens go off. People…

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Recent scary terror-paranoia dream: Sirens go off. People are terrified. I'm trying to flee. People direct me to a shelter. We're going into this gray structure. I catch sight of a sign on the wall: "No Outside Food or Beverages." What's going on? I don't want to be here. I deliberately lose the group, try to escape through an open window. Guards catch me. It's not a shelter, it's a forced-labor camp. They took advantage of our terror to enslave us.
