The Therapy Zone
Why the need for anonymity? What I mean is, why the need for the white robes and black and white masks? They are not in the theatre, it’s not a meeting for the Ku Klux Klan. Is the need for the masks so that each of the delegates do not know who the others are? If so why? Each delegate is responsible for different aspects of society, our society, but why the need for such strong anonymity amongst themselves? The fact is that these are the faceless men who are supposed to run our society so wisely. These are the so termed men and women of officialdom! Well we know the identity of at least two delegates, one is the Supervisor-Number 26. The other the bearded Number 93. A man who was forced to declare himself to be disharmonious, and inadequate. Are these the attributes of a delegate of the Assembly? Is this Assembly the power behind The Village, or does it seep out further afield, into our one very society? There are two Villages, The Village where this assembly oversees everything to do with its running. Then there is The Village of Westminster, the political Village, which is much like the Assembly in The Village, in which people are responsible for varying section of society. In his former life Number 6 lived in the City of Westminster, he could have been a member of the political Village of Westminster. Certainly we witness a former Number 2 returning to the Houses of Parliament, which is at the very heart of The Village of Westminster. And remember it was his lot, in the past, to wield a not inconsiderable power. Nay he had the ears of Statesmen, Kings, and Princes of many lands. Governments had been swayed, politics defined, and revolutions nipped in the bud, at a word from him, in the right place, and at a propitious time, which is an indication that he had possible connections with the Foreign Office. And begs the question why wasn’t a place found for him on the assembly? None of which actually answers why the white robes and masks. Perhaps they are part of some fraternity, or Freemason-ship. Not that these fellow look like they are capable of doing good deeds for their fellow man. Mind you they did give the former Number 6 a pretty good compensation package. The key to his house, which was being prepared for him, and looked to have been purchased on his behalf. A passport valid for anywhere. Travellers cheques worth a million, and a leather drawstring purse full of petty cash.
So why the anonymity? Is that directed against each other, if so why? After all they are all colleagues sitting on the assembly. Why shouldn’t they show their faces? But perhaps its all secret, no-one is to know who the others are for whatever secret cult reason! The truth of the matter is we simply do not know, nor are we likely to know. All we can do is interpret the situation and not only arrive at our conclusion, but also be content with it. Otherwise leave well alone and simply accept the fact that after almost fifty years after the event, if we don’t know the actual answer to something within ‘the Prisoner’ perhaps we never will.
Be seeing you
