It would appear not! Number Six's voice booms out over The Village that he had command, that he would immobilise all electronic controls, telling the citizens to obey him and be free. That the people are free, free, free to go! However the words of Number Six fall on deaf ears. Not one citizen reacts to Number Six's demand for them to be free, freedom being the basis of his policies. Number Two is a past master at the manipulating of such a community as in The Village. In his last speech Number Two was in fact manipulating the community against Number Six, warning them, telling them to beware to be careful, asking the people if they can trust Number Six, possibly brainwashing them with his words.
Be seeing you
