Number 6 is brought before the Committee for being disharmonious. But he'd been here before, when he was being interrogated by Number 2 and his assistant Number 12.
They wanted to know who his confederates are. Who let him into the Town Hall, and suspect there's an organisation, dissidents. And talks about old fashioned slogans, such as the freedom to learn, liberty to make mistakes. The walls put me in mind of flames, and I wonder why no-one actually sits in that chair in the background? Certainly Number 2 never sat in that chair, perhaps he was never meant to. However I could imagine Number 1 sitting in that chair, if Number 1 wasn't so reclusive!
