>There needs to be constant conflict. For if peace presides for too long,
generations will forget what it was like during the war, they will forget
that terror is needed for the control of the people. For if we don’t do it,
there will be chaos – we are an extremely important link in this chain my
>> Are you serious? What’s so bad about people breaking apart and forming
their own groups dedicated to science and the betterment of us all?

– but as I said, it is essential.

that what you’re saying is only a hypothetical idea – How can you be so

> We’re barbarians my son – we’re all savages, animals. We are so
susceptible to inhumane acts, it is within us all – it can’t be helped, there needs to be control.
>> I still believe that there can be a pacifistic way out.
i.e: Twin Peaks – Season 2
– The location of Bob and the other Spirit’s members aren’t directly told
to the audience. That information is scattered through out the episodes and
the info comes from many characters, fragments, that the audience (through
ditectives) are trying to piece together. The info is also recalled from
the past; i.e. Bob living in the lake house. So, the background of the
Spirit Characters are pieced together, thus indirectly telling the history of them.
