* TotalitarianUtilitarian: Jonathan Irons acknowledges that he could not have achieved his power outside of a democratic country, but he also points out that ''every'' attempt by the United States to install democracy in ''any'' foreign country has been a ''total failure'' - and feels that though democracy in America is the source of its prosperity, it's [[YourDaysAreNumbered not going to last]] for the same reason it has failed to take root overseas; it doesn't work unless the majority of the citizenry are tolerant of religious, political and social differences, concepts that are nonexistent in third-world countries and on the decline in first-world nations. Once tolerance gives way to fear, people ''will'' surrender freedom for security - and isn't that what PrivateMilitaryContractors like Atlas provide?

* TotalitarianUtilitarian: Jonathan Irons strongly believes that implementation of democracy has failed in many countries, and feels that though democracy in America is the source of its prosperity, it's [[YourDaysAreNumbered not going to last]], meaning people will need strong law and order with an iron fist. He uses previous examples of failed attempts to install democracies by the United States as examples, and says that security is more important than democracy.

* FollowTheLeader: The apparent gameplay changes to the standard ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' formula created by the exosuit and its superhuman abilities drew many comparisons to ''VideoGame/TitanFall'' and the ''VideoGame/{{Crysis}}'' series.

* DemocracyIsBad: Jonathan Irons seems to believe that the Third World simply is incapable of supporting democracy. [[VillainHasAPoint He makes a good point]] that the Third World lacks the concepts necessary for it; freedom of religion, freedom of the press, even basic freedom of ''speech'' - and that new democracies have ''never'' been created through outside pressure. He also [[SmugSnake smugly]] states that even America itself could be considered an anomaly, because [[LetNoCrisisGoToWaste in times of chaos]], humanity will eagerly embrace [[TotalitarianUtilitarian a good ol' firm-but-fair iron fist]] - which he just so happens to be able to provide via his [[PrivateMilitaryContractors PMC]], Atlas. He's still a CardCarryingVillain, though, willing to commit [[spoiler:mass murder through biological warfare to achieve his goals]].

* DemocracyIsBad: Jonathan ZigZagged. Irons seems to himself gladly admits the benefits of living in a democracy, he just doesn't believe that most of the Third World simply is incapable world capable of supporting democracy. [[VillainHasAPoint He makes a good point]] it - nor does he believe that the Third World lacks the concepts necessary for it; it will last, because humans will [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans reject freedom in favor of religion, freedom of the press, even basic freedom of ''speech'' - and that new democracies have ''never'' been created through outside pressure. He also [[SmugSnake smugly]] states that even America itself could be considered an anomaly, because powerful leadership]] in [[LetNoCrisisGoToWaste in times of chaos]], humanity will eagerly embrace [[TotalitarianUtilitarian crisis]]. He thus justifies seizing power as simply the smallest of a good ol' firm-but-fair iron fist]] - which he just so happens to be able to provide via his [[PrivateMilitaryContractors PMC]], Atlas. He's still a CardCarryingVillain, though, willing to commit [[spoiler:mass murder through biological warfare to achieve his goals]].list of evils.



** There's quite a lot of TruthInTelevision when Irons criticizes the United States' inability to bring peace and democracy to the Third World due to flawed policies, as countries with little in the way of democratic practices in their histories tend toward other systems or adapt democracy to their own systems instead, rendering the changes often useless or temporary. His criticism of them as only causing wars that lead to more wars for the past century (by the time of the game, that reaches back to approximately UsefulNotes/WorldWarII) also strikes a chord.

His criticism temporary - those cultures lack ''all'' of them as only causing the concepts necessary for it; freedom of religion, freedom of the press, even basic freedom of ''speech''. He makes an equally good point that America has been trying to turn other nations into democracies since UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and it has never worked, instead a starting cycle of wars that lead has continued into the 21st century. He also [[SmugSnake smugly]] points out that even America itself could be considered an anomaly, because [[LetNoCrisisGoToWaste in times of chaos]], humanity will eagerly embrace [[TotalitarianUtilitarian a good ol' firm-but-fair iron fist]] - the 2050s have seen the country become a police state in all but name due to more fear of terrorism - so he sees no reason ''not'' to provide said fist himself via his [[PrivateMilitaryContractors PMC]], Atlas. He's still a CardCarryingVillain, though, willing to commit [[spoiler:mass murder through biological warfare to "end wars for the past century (by the time of the game, that reaches back to approximately UsefulNotes/WorldWarII) also strikes a chord.before wars end mankind"]].
