** NotSoStoic: It seems that when Nelson Mandella showed Paul what might have been the first real act of emotion and empathy towards him, Paul was shaken so deeply that it destroyed the very foundations of everything he believed in.

* [[EvilCounterpart Good Counterpart]]: Of Breckinridge "Breck" Scott. Both characters sold the lie of "hope". But while Breck sold a sham vaccine to make a quick buck, Elliot's films were meant to inspire people to keep surviving, and to stop people from dying of despair. Notably, both characters are honest about "selling lies".
