Jean Rasczak:
All right, let's sum up. This year we explored the failure of democracy. How our social scientists brought our world to the brink of chaos. We talked about the veterans, how they took control and established the stability that has lasted for generations since. You know these facts, but have I taught you anything of value this year?
[to a student]

Jean Rasczak:
You. Why are only citizens allowed to vote?
Student:
It's a reward. Something the federation gives you for doing federal service.
Jean Rasczak:
No. Something given has no value. When you vote, you are exercising political authority, you're using force. And force my friends is violence. The supreme authority from which all other authorities are derived.

Transcript:
Let's sum up. This year we explored... the failure of Democracy, how the social scientists brought our world... to the brink of chaos. We talked about the veterans, how they took control... and imposed the stability that has lasted for generations since. You know these facts. But have I taught you anything of value? You. Why are only citizens allowed to vote? It's a reward. What the Federation gives you... - for doing federal service. - No. No! Something given... has no value. When you vote you are exercising political authority. You're using force. Force, my friends, is violence. The supreme authority from which all other authority is derived. My mother says violence never solves anything. Really? I wonder what the city fathers of Hiroshima would say about that. You. They probably wouldn't say anything. - Hiroshima was destroyed. - Correct. Naked force has resolved more issues... throughout history than any other factor. The contrary opinion that violence never solves anything... is wishful thinking at its worst. People who forget that always pay. What's the moral difference, if any... between a civilian and a citizen? A citizen accepts personal responsibility for the safety... of the body politic, defending it with his life. - A civilian does not. - Exact words of the text. But do you understand it? Do you believe it? I don't know. Of course you don't. I doubt anyone here... would recognize civic virtue if it bit you in the ass! Not here. Come on. Let's see if they posted the math final.
