What Marcus is saying is right. You cant just sit around and expect that after a while you will get what you want, thats not how it works. When it comes to freedom, people shouldnt sit their and wait when it is something that should never be taken away from you in the first place.
I think its a little strange that Ange is so ok with this. She is just getting up and leaving without any hesitation at all. If it were me I would be a little freaked out considering the fact that I am leaving a lot behind that i dont want to.
I agree with Gopika. Even though this person might be trying to help him it could be a trick and after everything that has happened i dont know if he should go with Masha. He could just be walking right into the hands of the DHS.
So now they have cameras in the classroom? If that were me I would feel like i was in a prison too. Its ridiculous how closely they are watching the students now. He is being punished for talking about something in class when he has every right to do that. He wasnt hurting anyone in the process, it was just debate. The fact that parents are letting the school get away with all of this is ridiculous.
The government didnt like what Ms. Galvez was teaching so they just replace her. They want the students to know information that they think is suitable for the class. Just like they did with the FastTrak and their bus passes, they have found another way to force people to do or learn what they think they should.
I agree with Samantha. Ange thinks that adults dont understand anything and can’t be trusted. Teeneagers dont realize what parents and other adults are trying to do for them which is usually just trying to help. Other teenagers could easily lie to you and lose your trust the same way they believe an adult would.
Marcus seems to have accepted that they will come for him some time. Even though he should probably be nervous condidering he knows what they can do, he seems calm. Shows how he has changed since the first time he was confronted by the DHS and taken. Not as afraid as he was before.
I agree with melissa. Invading peoples privacy would probably lead to more paranoia and more chaos. People wouldnt feel much safer and by allowing this to happen, they are allowing the government to expand there power. If they keep going with this then when are they going to be stopped?
In a way they are slowly forcing people to do what they want them to do. They want to track people every where they go so they slowly push people into using these FasTrak passes by making them cheaper and putting more of these on the bridges then regular tolls.
When he has his technology is when he seems to feel the safest. He was so afraid earlier but since he can have something that he can control and that hasnt been tampered with by the government it makes him feel powerful and a bit like he was before.
Its sad because now that he knows what the truck looks like and after all that he has been through he is scared everywhere he goes. He had to get up and run from it because he didnt want to go back, they have made him so paranoid and afraid.
Its amazing how people can just keep going and not care about anyone else. People screaming and yelling in a time like this isnt going to help anyone and all it does is cause other people to feel more fear.
i dont understand why a school would need so much security. They seem to just want to have control of every kid in the school by any means. even though the court ruled the first unconstitutional, they still found another way to identify their students.
its funny how kids are so intense about a game. i understand they are trying to win but to fight over a clue seems a little over the top.
He seems to know how far he can push since he has been in these situations before but its a bit annoying how arrogant he is with this whole conversation
