‘Of course you may,it was meant to highlight how little the populace in general are thought of by those in control.’
‘You mean of our lives?’
‘If you like,our government,country,ect.’

‘I don’t understand…’
‘Let me explain,you used your mind to think outside of the box,if you like,to come to a conclusion,using your own individuality.’
‘Are you saying that we should awaken to who we are,as individuals,and thus become who we are?’
‘I am saying exactly so,you are correct.’
‘That is very encouraging news,thankyou,my friend.’
‘You’re very welcome,my friend.’

‘When does this abortion occur?’ -He addressed her thus,as this was such shocking news.Why was She acting this way?
