How long since you wept at the death of a friend? Doesn't mean a thing to you, does it, Madam President? You've surrounded yourself with machines and weapons, mindless men and heartless [[{{cyborg}} mutoids]]; and when they've done your work, and the machines have done your thinking, what is there left in you that ''feels?!"''

Tools for communicating, researching, organizing, and empowering people will be turned into [[BreadAndCircuses idle pleasures and amusement]], or worse yet, a hub of [[{{Facebook}} pointless social competition]]."''

Indeed. Why ruin a 27-hour train ride?"''
