You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Assange, and Mr. Zakaria and I won't have it, is that clear?!

NETWORK Directed by Sidney Lumet. Starring Peter Finch, Robert Duvall and Ned Beatty. 1976


Network (1976) - Ned Beatty - "The World is a Business" :

Peter Finch in Network (1976): Mind Control Speech:

Network - "I'm as mad as hell" speech:

 

Jensen: You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won't have it, is that clear?! You think you have merely stopped a business deal -- that is not the case! The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back. It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity, it is ecological balance! You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations! There are no peoples! There are no Russians. 

There are no Arabs! There are no third worlds! There is no West! There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multi-variate, multi-national dominion of dollars! petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars!, Reichmarks, rubles, rin, pounds and shekels! It is the international system of currency that determines the totality of life on this planet! That is the natural order of things today! 

That is the atomic, subatomic and galactic structure of things today! And you have meddled with the primal forces of nature, and you will atone! Am I getting through to you, Mr. Beale? (pause) You get up on your little twenty-one inch screen, and howl about America and democracy. There is no America. There is no democracy. 

There is only IBM and ITT and AT&T and Dupont, Dow, Union Carbide and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today. What do you think the Russians talk about in their councils of state -- Karl Marx? They pull out their linear programming charts, statistical decision theories and minimax solutions and compute the price-cost probabilities of their transactions and investments just like we do.

We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr. Beale. The world is a college of corporations, inexorably deter- mined by the immutable by-laws of business. The world is a business, Mr. Beale! 

It has been since man crawled out of the slime, and our children, Mr.Beale, will live to see that perfect world in which there is no war and famine, oppression and brutality --one vast and ecumenical holding company, for whom all men will work to serve a common profit, in which all men will hold a share of stock, all necessities provided, all anxieties tranquilized, all boredom amused. And I have chosen you to preach this evangel, Mr. Beale.

Howard: (humble whisper) Why me?

Jensen: Because you're on television, dummy. Sixty million people watch you every night of the week, Monday through Friday.

I am not sure about Zakaria

by Mehrban on

but I think Assange is a true revolutionary.  The right to information the way he has approached it could, if it is allowed to stay alive change international relations and diplomatic affairs as we know it.  I like him.  I hope he stays alive, he is an important figure.

In other words, Mr. Beale,

by Soosan Khanoom on

You are the new prophet (messenger) of a new religion aka new world order.  And the message to the world is:

'  You are either with us or you are with them ( The Terrorists )'
