Brecht worked on Congress of the Whitewashers from 1937 to 1953. The play comes out of a clear incisive, Marxist habit of thought. The Tuis (intellectuals; form Brecht's acronym, tellekt-uell-in) are paid by the system to deform thought, but cannot change the truth, or history, which is determined by those the system fails to pay.
