The General

   “No more wastage in schools. No more tedious learning by rote...... A brilliantly devised course, delivered by a leading teacher, subliminally learned and checked by an infallible authority....... and what do you have?”
    “A row of cabbages!”
    Well we might have met with this "row of cabbages" previously during the dissolution of the out going council at the Town Hall during the election period of ‘Free For All.’ And as the candidate Number 6 observed, what a bunch of "tailors dummies" they all turned out to be. And as far as I can see, a more suited "row of cabbages" you would not wish to meet.
     "Can you laugh, can you cry, can you think? In your heads must be the remnants of a brain. In your hearts must be the desire to be a human being again.”  {Number 6 Free For All}
     Is this what happens to those "Rotten cabbages" in the village? Brainwashed imbeciles, who might once have been former No.2's who have now been sub-divided, and who now sit upon the Town Council without a voice, and without power to act. A puppet regime, a twentieth century Bastille which pretends to be a pocket democracy. It's all a farce really, as Number 6 observes. Solitary confinement would be more effective in getting what "they" want, as are truth drugs. But then that might prove to be too easy, as No.2 and the village administration do like to play their games, but not to "damage the tissue."

   Had ‘Free For All’ been different, as well as the village's administrations attitude towards Number 6. That the rigged elections had actually proved to have been democratic after all, with Number 6 having been duly elected as the new Number 2. Then might not Number 6 himself one day, have found himself a member of the Town Council. A brainwashed imbecile, with no heart or brain, nor the desire to be a human being again.

Be seeing You
