“Your kind doesnt just kill men. You murder their spirits, you strangle their last breath of hope and freedom, so that you, the chosen few, can rule your slaves in ease and luxury. Youre a sadist just like the others, Heiser, with no resource but violence and no feeling but fear, the kind youre feeling now. Youre drowning, Heiser, drowning in the ocean of blood around this barren little island you call the New Order.”
—Curtis Siodmak (19021988)
