Political freedom (or a lack of freedom) is a part of every community.
In Roger Williams in an Elevator, the protagonist, Kate Odyssey, is often trying to help other people. She is not always perceived in a positive way, though, as this scene from the novel illustrates:
Freeborn looked up at the ceiling. “So, Kate, does your setting
above everyone else, up there on the top of the elevator, make you
act like a king when you tell people what to do?”
Kate’s face looked shocked. “I hope not. I think I’m acting
more like a member of congress or parliament than like a king.”

More debate about Kate’s role can be found in multiple places in Roger Williams in an Elevator, including on pages 188 through 194.
