I heard something on the radio in June, and it seeded the following thought. When it comes to freedom, how much freedom can the Village afford? Because there is a certain amount of freedom within the Village. To some extent citizens are permitted to do as they please, as any number of activities are organised to entertain them. Also citizens are allowed to find their own amusement. Even Number 6 is left to his own devices, to some extent, as they didn't stop him building his private gymnasium in the woods. There is freedom within the prison!
Be seeing you
