New School

I've been out of the hospital for four days now. They've put me in an apartment of my own in a little communal housing area, one of many within the compound. Even though I'm on my own, I know I'm being watched. It didn't take long to find at least some of the cameras, if not all.

Because I was discharged in the middle of last week, they let me have a long weekend to settle in, but today I started my "re-education". I'm young enough that they've put me in what they call the day school, analogous to what Americans would call a community college, I guess. We're given a selection of subjects to pick from - I chose computer programming, carpentry and cookery. All the subjects are things which can be used to contribute to the Church in some way. I just picked what looked vaguely interesting.

In addition to these electives, we're given a daily class in the theology of the Church. This is the brainwashing class, obviously. I'm not going to pollute the Internet by spreading their filth but, after the first day, I can't see how they expect to successfully indoctrinate me. Either they're far more subtle than they seem at first, or my treatment is going to get progressively more severe.

Time will tell, I guess.


  1. Well, I guess I'll be keeping in touch, Sufjan. I don't know where this Church is, wish I could fly across the Pacific and bust you out, but I can't.

    My thoughts go to ya, Sufjan.

  2. They allow you on the internet? What if you contact the police and tell them where you are? Or tell them anything, really? Even if your IP address is blocked somehow, which it probably isn't, I'm sure the cops have lots of other ways of tracking a person through the web.

    1. No, they allow me on Blogger. All other sites are blocked. Anyway, I don't even know where I am.
