Alas, at the same time that a chemical substitute for a 
full night's sleep becomes safe and widely available, 
another chemical which offers lucid, controllable dreams 
of lifelike vividity will also become available. 

Those with the socioeconomic werewithal will spend 
almost all their time asleep, waking only occasionally
to brag about their dreams to the resentful wakeful
masses. 

A revolution, relatively nonviolent because one side 
will sleep through the whole affair, will establish a
universal right to 12 hours sleep per day.

You heard it here first.
