Without asking questions

Charles Tobin:
You're one of the ardent believers - a good American. Oh, there are millions like you. People who play along, without asking questions. I hate to use the word stupid, but it seems to be the only one that applies. The great masses, the moron millions. Well, there are a few of us unwilling to troop along... a few of us who are clever enough to see that there's much more to be done than just live small complacent lives, a few of us in america who desire a more profitable type of government. When you think about it, Mr. Kane, the competence of totalitarian nations is much higher than ours. They get things done.

Transcript:
not when you're out trying
to save your country.
Why do you sneer every time
you refer to this country?
You've done pretty well here,
I don't get it.
No, you wouldn't.
You're one of the ardent believers.
Millions like you plod along
without asking questions.
I hate to use the word stupid,
but it seems to be the one that applies.
The great masses, the moron millions.
Well, there are a few of us
who are unwilling to just troop along.
A few who are clever enough
to see that there's more to be done
than just live small, complacent lives.
A few of us who desire a more
profitable type of government.
When you think about it, Mr Kane,
the competence of totalitarian nations
is much higher than ours.
They get things done.
Yeah. They get things done.
They bomb cities, sink ships,
so you can eat off a gold plate.
I neither intend to be bombed nor sunk.
That's why I'm leaving now.
And if things don't go right for you -
If we should win,
then I'll come back.
Perhaps I can get
what I want then: Power.
Yes. I want that as much as you want
your comfort, or a job, or...
Or that girl.
We all have different tastes,
as you can see.
Only I'm willing to back my tastes
with the necessary force.
You certainly make it sound
smooth and easy.
That's a trick.
I know the results of
that power you believe in.
It killed my friend,
and it's killing thousands like him.
That's what you're aiming at.
But it doesn't bother you,
I can see that.
Because you really hate all people.
Let me tell you something.
The last four or five days
I've learned a lot.
I've met guys like you,
and I've met others -
people that are helpful and eager
to do the right thing;
people that get a kick out of
helping each other fight the bad guys.
Love and hate.
The world's choosing up sides.
I know who I'm with.
