The world is rarely so black and white. Mostly, I have come to see it as very grey. But there is black. And there is white.

There was a time where the system and the people who were supposed to protect, they destroyed. Times where they did and still do, take more than they will ever give. Christ to the Cross about century before I was born. They burned women in Salem and before across the Earth. Societies and systems have enslaved and slaughtered entire races.

Why should I believe in your system?

Everybody has a flaw. Something they want, something about them that lets you in. You can exploit these to gain an advantage.

Even if they don't want anything...they will.

You just have to take away what they already have.

What is done is done. There is nothing that I can do about it, and there is nothing you can do about it. This is just something that you will have to define yourself.

You gotta have faith in yourself and only then you will be able to show your faith in others. That’s how it goes.

Sparta, Rome, the knights of Europe, the Samurai...all shared the lone ideal: the honour of strength, because it is strength that makes all other values possible. Nothing survives without it. Who knows what delicate wonders have died out of the world for want of the strength to survive? Civilisation's highest ideas―justice―could not exist without strong men and women to enforce it. Indeed, what is civilisation but simply the honour of the strong?

What is it the diplomats say? “Trust, but verify?” And when a journalist’s mother says she loves him, he gets it confirmed by three sources before he believes. Shadowrunners consider both groups to be suicidally naïve; they’ve dealt with Mr. Johnson.
