Absolute power CORRUPTS absolutely!
So that's the moral of the story. She is going to try and close the garden down if she can because it's too painful to see residents being independent, self-empowered, and using their time to recreate outside their room besides sitting inside their room watching TV. In fact, soon after I moved in, she had once asked why I didn't just adjust to life at my age and start watching more TV? Forget that the library has pretty much nothing-books and trashy videos, in fact, they work at consciously furnishing the rack with serial women-consumer magazines. They don't really like to furnish us books of intellectual quality, and outright discourage community activisms.
Maybe I will have to buy a pet frog for the garden. It will be a rock-frog, then it will never have to be cared, and I can maybe blow a kiss at it every day, hoping it will turn into a contemporary version of the Prince. That might make her jealous too though, but yeah, if her future and mine and all of ours here must meld, since she really wants to control our Fate, then I do have to pray to the Prince of Peace. Forget about the ill-intentions of the Queen deliberately trying to downsize my hopes and dreams, or the suffering the stink-eye looks that the Regents give us when they do see the 1/20 woman who manages to risk actually cooking in the kitchen during the daytime.
WE HAVE HUMAN RIGHTS! I DON'T HAVE TO EAT A TV DINNER EVERY NIGHT. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO LEGISLATE MY LIFE, BUT IF YOU DO, I WILL NOT HOLD BACK MY PRAYERS FOR YOUR WELL BEING AND MIND-HEART. YOU CAN HATE ME, DECIDE TO CAUTERIZE OUR LIVES DOWN TO SOMETHING EDIBLE, THE ONE-TIME ENDLESS PARTY, THE HOT RANGE ROVER, THE COOL BLING, THE NEAT CONCERT. I AM NOT GOING TO GIVE UP HOPE ON YOU!
