I feel much better for having been in the Therapy Zone, things are so much clearer now, and besides I like a drink! And yet there is one thing I do not understand. How can anyone be an alcoholic in the Therapy Zone in perfect privacy, and I do understand that, there being no surveillance. But to be an alcoholic in the Therapy Zone is one thing, just as long as you rejoin the flock in good time, but in the village? The village is temperance, running a policy of prohibition, you cannot stop being an alcoholic when back in the village, the need for alcohol doesn’t go away. It’s pretty tough on the citizen if being in the Therapy Zone turns you into an alcoholic! I used to think how Number 2 lowers his inhibitions, “To hell with the village!” A drunk you see tells the truth, they should have given Number 6 the “hollow leg treatment,” pour some gin down him and he’ll soon start talking, they wouldn’t be able to stop him. But Number 2 wasn’t the worse for drink, he was stone cold sober, and the Therapy Zone nothing more than an opportunity to further drug Number 6. No, perhaps indoctrination is the better way, and perhaps Number 6 stumbled in on the real Therapy Zone. An alien life form instilling its very being into the human psyche! I have become Rover!
Be seeing you
