Trinidad Carnival, or at least Carnival the way we see it. In many ways, Carnival represents the release of the Id: a relinquishing of control from the Superego. It is a cultural adaptation of expression of a psychologically repressed slave society. Trapped somewhere within the chaos and the madness lies the executive self, taking a backseat to revelry on this day. Within the chaos and the madness, there is an island of stillness.
