Taking note of personalised number plates around the city gives you an insight into just how many people want them. Are there so many of us that are against the system? Is there a desire to fight against authority and assert the individual self like number six in the prisoner did?
However, there is a price to this. Some number plates cost so much that the only way to afford such an item is to hold extravagant wealth. Can any true rebel be a beneficiary of the system they fight against or does it mean that in this social order, only those at the top can be identified by a name rather than a number? Asserting yourself against the system is an illusion perpetrated by those that govern the system or aspire to. The revolution has been bought or stolen by the establishment.
