The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Diana in a marketplace. Looks a bit like a shopping mall, with various storefronts, signs, and people milling about.
Caption: This particular Quinday, the best deal on the vegetables I wanted were at a greengrocer's in the Mercado DeSoto.
Caption: It's also where some of the beneficencia hang their shingles, hoping to collect donations or volunteers for their various projects.
Panel 2
She strolls by a shop selling cosmetics, glancing at the wares.
Caption: People here have found that not everything that needs doing can be done for profit.
Caption: So they form the beneficencia – donation-funded institutions that provide everything from charity for the unlucky to resources for experimental art or basic science.

Panel 3
She walks by a storefront with a sign for Mentes Libres. Signage has uplifting type imagry.
Caption: The beneficencia also support social education and activism.
Caption: There's Mentes Libres, a group which promotes the founding principles of this place, which I guess could be summed up as 'compassionate individualism.'
Caption: Although back then I thought it was more like 'co-operative lawlessness.'
Panel 4
She has stopped at a storefront with a sign for Républicains por la Démocratie. There is a stand with stacks of flyers and books, and a sign reading, 'Please take a flyer.' She's picking one up.
Diana: And this is where I first encountered 'Républicains pour la Démocratie,' a group that wants to establish a traditional government in the City, with elections and everything.
Diana: I did find some of their arguments appealing, although I thought they'd have more influence if their name and literature weren't all in French.
