RASCZAK
Here in History and Moral Philosophy
we've explored the decline of
Democracy when social scientists brought
the world to the brink of chaos, and how the
veterans took control and imposed a stability
that has lasted for generations since...
You know these facts but have I taught you
anything of value ? You.
Why are only citizens allowed to vote ?

LANNY
It's a reward... what the Federation gives you
for doing Federal Service.

RASCZAK
No. Something given has no value !
Haven't I taught you dimwits anything ?
I guess they ought to revoke my
teaching credential...When you vote, you're exercising political
authority. You're using force. And force, my
friends, is violence, the supreme authority
from which all other authority derives.

DIZZY
My mother always says that violence
never solves anything.

RASCZAK
Really ? I wonder what the city fathers of
Hiroshima would have to say about that.
You.

CARMEN
They probably wouldn't say anything.
Hiroshima was destroyed.

RASCZAK
Correct. Naked force has settled more
issues in history than any other factor.
The contrary opinion 'violence never
solves anything' is wishful thinking
at its worst.

RASCZAK
People who forget that always pay...
They pay with their lives and their
freedom.
