You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale!
And, I won't have it!
Is that clear!
Do you think you merely stopped a business deal -
That is not the case!
The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country -
And now they must put it back!
It is ebb & flow!
It is ecological balance!
You are an old man -
Who thinks in terms of nations and peoples -
There are no nations - there are no peoples -
There are no Russians - there are no Arabs -
There are 3rd worlds - there is no West -
There is only one holistic system of systems -
One vast and main interwoven, interactive, multi-varied -
Multi-national dominion of dollars -
Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars,
Reichsmarks, rubles, pounds & scheckles -
It is the international system of currency -
Which determines the totality of life -
On this planet -
That is the natural order of things, today -
That is atomic and sub-atomic and galactic structure
Of things today!
And you have meddled with the primal forces of nature!
And you will atone!
Am I getting through to you, Mr. Beale?
You get up on your little 21-inch screen -
And howl about America & democracy -
There is no America, there is no democracy -
There is only -
IBM, ITT, AT&T, and Dupont -
Dow, Union Carbide & EXXON -
Those are the nations of the world today -
What do you think the Russians talk about -
In their councils of state? -
They get out their lineal programming charts -
Statistical decision theories
Min & max solutions
& compute the price cost probabilities of their -
