Here Frey is waiting to make his next move against the Solar Eye. I really liked the concept of Strategy vs Tactics described by Michel de Certeau in his The Practice of Everyday Life.
“A tactic is a calculated action determined by the absence of a proper locus. … The space of a tactic is the space of the other”. A tactic is deployed “on and with a terrain imposed on it and organized by the law of a foreign power.” One who deploys a tactic “must vigilantly make use of the cracks that particular conjunctions open in the surveillance of the proprietary powers. It poaches in them. It creates surprises in them”
In the story, Frey falls under Tactics while going against the Strategies of the surveillance state. I will be revealing new antagonists in the following chapters so stay tuned!
