There was an episode of the X-Files on last night. In the episode Cancer Man is interrogating a shape-shifting alien. It’s like Chris Carter and the writers of this episode saw 2020/2021 in 1996 when this episode aired.

We give them happiness and they give us authority. The authority to take away their freedom under the guise of democracy. Men can never be free because they’re weak, corrupt, worthless and restless.

No greater explanation exists for them. They must never believe any differently if the project is to go forward. What cost to them questions irrelevant and the outcome inevitable. The date is set.

Here is the video from the episode.
