(last lines) Gerry Langdon: The organizing principle of any society is for war. The basic authority of 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 is a problem. Our way of life, its over. It's unsustainable and in rapid decline. That's why we 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, WMDs. A population in a permanent state of fear does not ask questions. Our desire for war becomes *its* desire for war. A willing sacrifice. You see, fear is justification, fear is control, fear is money. You're a brilliant soldier and I could still use someone like you. Robert Miller: I'll ask you one more time. Where is she? Gerry Langdon: Do you know the term "train tracking?" And "batterying?" Perhaps you should look closer to home. The young men of your estate. So vicious. Poor Alayna wouldn't stand... (takes a bullet to the heart)
