* KleptomaniacHero: The first thing Thorn does after entering somebody's home is steal anything edible. Apparently this is not unexpected behaviour for a policeman. They are beginning ''to starve'', just like everyone else. So much so, that its common practice for everyone on the force to demand a cut/percentage from someone else's job/salary to get by.

Added DiffLines:

* NostalgiaFilter: Sol reminisces on the "[[GoodOldWays good old days]]" often, [[DeadPanSnarker much to Thorn's annoyance]], who quips even people back then must have been "pure and good" too. Sol corrects him. People then [[HumansAreBastards were as rotten as they are today]]. But the Earth, ''[[GaiasLament was beautiful]]''.

* MissingStepsPlan: What exactly is Thorn hoping to accomplish by telling the public what Soylent Green really is? ''Earth's biosphere is still dead.'' His actions will only trigger yet more rioting/violence as the masses seek to avoid cannibalism, and acquire real food: a short and limited stockpile for the rich. It could sustain thousands, but not millions, and NEVER billions. If Earth's environment has any remote chance of recovery after the majority of the human race die off - [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom Thorn has just killed that chance]]. The poor will drag the rich down with them to destruction. [[DownerEnding Mankind cannot survive]].

What he doesn't appreciate is - ''Earth's biosphere is still dead.'' His actions will only trigger yet more rioting/violence as the masses seek to avoid cannibalism, and acquire real food: a short and limited stockpile for the rich.

Added DiffLines:

* PopulationControl: ''Frighteningly deconstructed''. The governments refuse, or are too incompetent, to enforce birth control. [[ElephantInTheLivingRoom The painfully ignorant citizens do as they please]], rioting in the streets whenever there's a food shortage, which is often.

** The [[Literature/MakeRoomMakeRoom book]] is just as bad. The world population in the book? Seven billion. One would think that the 35,000,000 people living in New York City would spread out.

** The [[Literature/MakeRoomMakeRoom book]] is just as bad. The world population in the book? Seven billion. One would think that the 35,000,000 people living in New York City would spread out. Not to mention that the ''current'' world population is estimated at 7.4 billion, and the US still has such a food surplus that it's routinely thrown out to make room for fresher ingredients.

Roth, having uncovered a terrible secret in the oceanographic survey, has lost the will to live and decides to take government-sponsored euthanasia. Thorn finds him at the suicide clinic, just in time for Roth to tell him the secret with his [[LastWords dying words]]. He follows Roth's corpse along to a factory that [[ImAHumanitarian processes the dead into soylent green biscuits]]. He makes a call to [[DaChief his chief]], Hatcher (Brock Peters), and is ambushed by Fielding. Severely wounded, he urges Hatcher to tell people the truth about Soylent Green, thus providing the famous quote.
