Quote of the month: “Humans seem to need an enemy”

Humans seem to need an enemy. At least it’s very easy to manipulate them by creating one. You can find this phenomenon in just about every story from Disney to Die Hard 3, let alone reality. It’s the phenomenon that drives writers like Aldous Huxley and George Orwell. It’s also the justification for overzealous government.
