Tonight’s movie quote:
The organizing principle of any society is war.
The basic authority for the modern state over its people resides in its war powers.
Today, it’s oil. Tomorrow, water. It’s what we like to call the God Business.
Guns, oil and drugs.
But there’s a problem. Our way of life, it’s over. It’s unsustainable and in rapid decline.
That’s why we can implement demand destruction. We continue to make money as the world burns.
But for this to work the people have to remain ignorant of the problem until it’s too late.
That’s why we have triggers in place. 9/11, 7/7, WMD’s.
A population in a permanent state of fear does not ask questions. Our desire for war becomes its desire, a willing sacrifice.
A willing sacrifice. You see?
Fear is justification. Fear is control.
Fear is money.
