"A convict's thoughts are no freer than he is: they come back to the same place, worry over the same thing continually. (119)"
Life in the camps is hard and suffocating mentally and physically. This quote shows how they have no freedom. They have to do everything that they are told. They don't have no say in anything. For example, they have to fight the battles that the soldiers need to fight.
"A zek's day is a long one, though, and he can find time for everything." (128)
This quote shows how the zek's are ignorant and lazy. The prisoners need to do everything for them. It shows how they have no soul. They don't have any emotion for the prisoners. They always say "Do this or do that". We can see how tough they are on all the prisoners and that they don't care. They don't have a limit for toughness.
