From The Mist

very beautiful words:

Amanda: You don’t have much faith in humanity, do you?
David: None whatsoever
Amanda: I can’t accept that
Amanda: People are basically good, decent
Amanda: My God, David, we’re a civilized society
David: Sure, as long as the machines are workin’
David: And you can dial 9-1-1
David: but you take those things away, you throw people in the dark,
David: you scare the shit out of them,
David: no more rules,
David: You’ll see how primitive they get
David: You scare people badly enough,
David: you can get ’em to do anything
David: They’ll turn to whoever promises a solution,
David: or whatever.

Ollie: As a species, we’re fundamentally insane
Ollie: Put more than two of us in a room, we pick sides
Ollie: and start dreaming up reasons to kill one another
Ollie: Why do you think we invented politics and religion?
