why wouldn't they desire convenience and efficiency? especially if it can help improve their life?
people don't stop having wants and you shouldn't presume what they had or know before they were in a situation i.e. displacement and extreme poverty due to war or third party malfeasance
but ignoring that, you can't actually think you would have some lazy carefree life behind bars where you don't have to worry about money (ignoring the importance of canteen/commissary/care packages/ in both gov't run and private run prisons, especially privatized ones, or the ones that make you work and/or pay for most things),
food (unless you don't care about the quality or the potential of having it taken away from you),
access (despite gov't cuts which lead to things like library, yard time and gym services being the first to go, and private prisons sometimes not even giving those things),
or safety (from both fellow inmates and the guards), do you?
even if the UK had a prison like that one in Norway, you have no control over anything
as far as this comic goes, they're in a real shitty situation. communes with better resources and more knowledgeable like-minded people have failed more times than not. the majority, even those on Kitty's side aren't built for subsistence living.
