furthermore, it seems pretty clear that in the terms of the 'great battle' between bethanie's father and bethanie, clearly the winner of that battle was bethanie's father. After all he still has enough control over bethanie to influence her actions on a daily basis without even needing to be in proximity to her. yeah some guy offends you what would your father want you to do, okay bethanie will do the OPPOSITE of what 'father' would approve of. doing the opposite of what your father wanted for you == just as much under his control as if you did exactly what he wanted. true freedom would be the ability to take in data without the fear of doing or checkign to thing 'would my dad want me to do that' and it seems clear to me at least tonight bethanies father has ruled over the majority of bethanie's decisions. that or i'm a total crackpot. and i AM a crackpot, i just also happen to get some things right... sometimes.
