I agree with those who have already spoken, although I have not been here long.  This sounds very much like a ploy to get us to fight one another.  It is obvious neither side, this Post Man or this Lucy, have any concept of leadership.  However, it sounds like they do have a very good concept of how to manipulate, as well as how to act like children.

Mr. Post Man, your something for letting those go home who wish to, would be their thanks.  If that is not enough for you, simply because of this Olney, and whatever grudge you hold against him, you are very pitiful.  And just as much of a fool as the little girl.

Despite how needlessly preachy that was, think I'll clue you in on something.

Neither the Post Man or Lucy are trying to give the impression of a leader. They're trying to show us they have the control we don't. That might sound like they're trying to play the leader. But really? They're just showing off and trying to force us into compliance.

Perhaps. But one can't force people into anything if they can't lead. Well, unless they desire to only do so through fear and pain, but even that is only so effective.

You're making assumptions about what they actually want. All Lucy wants is to keep us alive. I expect what the Postman wants is to kill us.

You were the one who just said they are trying to force us into compliance.

From: [identity profile] godisachild.livejournal.com
Yes. They're trying to make us compliant with where we are. Which'd involve breaking our wills, which is what this is all about. You...you do know what the word "compliance" means, right?

From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Yes, I do know. I also know you first said "Force us into compliance" and then said "Only wish to keep us alive".

Those aren't mutually exclusive. She wants to keep us alive. And to do that, she'll break us as much as she can, i.e. compliance. It'll make her job easier in keeping us alive by forcing us to be compliant. How you haven't noticed that with the drones, I don't know.

I've noticed the drones are like empty shells. And yes, that would be mutually exclusive. If she has to make us complaint in order to keep us alive, they are.

....They are. Some of them used to be people.

[He actually sounds like he might care there. Just a little bit.]

...That isn't what mutually exclusive means. Mutually exclusive applies to two terms that can't occur at the same time. Keeping us alive and forcing us into compliance, however, CAN occur at the same time.

Hm... Well, either way the problem is they are still obviously trying to cause trouble right now, and, I haven't heard anything about why they would need us here.
