Disappointment and Dedication


When Prince Schubert asked for additional restrictive measures, the people began to balk. Speaking on radio, the young reformer explained the reasons for higher taxes and food rationing; he was blunt when he stated the need for personal sacrifices. Nevertheless, the resistance to reform was great, and nostalgia for the “good old days” of King Andre began to grow. The people admitted that graft and corruption had been rife under Andre, but at least “everybody got his slice of pie.” Although Prince Schubert tempted to quit, he determined that he would help the people in spite of themselves.

  • restrictive- bersifat membatasi
  • balk- mogok
  • blunt- blak-blakan
  • graft- penyogokan
  • rife – tersebar luas
