At a tribunal where Number 1 appears initially to be a mechanical eye the Prisoner is informed by the president that he has won the right to be an individual,rather than a number.He will be allowed to leave and is given money for his journey. However he is not allowed to speak. A shadowy figure who resembles the Prisoner would seem to be the actual Number One and Number Six dispenses him - and the assembly - in a rocket.As he leaves he frees Number Two,who has been put on trial,along with Number Two's butler,who has served him throughout and a young man known as Number Forty-Eight. Having dropped off Number Two at the Houses of Parliament the Prisoner returns o his own home,which has Number one on its door. Written by

The representative of the 'community representatives' who reads the charges against Number 48 is representative of 'anarchists.' Number 48 is charged with 'the most 'serious breach of social etiquette. 1) Total defiance of the elementary laws which sustain our community. 2) Questioning the decisions of those we voted to govern us. 3) Unhealthy aspects of speech & dress not in accordance with general practice. 4) The refusal to observe, wear or respond to his number.' All of these charges are what anarchists' rebel AGAINST. See more
