41,494.  Valhalla, Mr Beale.  Please sit down.  You have meddled with the primal forces of Nature, Mr Beale.  And I won’t have it.  Is that clear?  You think you've 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 out of systems.  One vast and immune interwoven, interacting, multi-variant, multinational dominion of Dollars.  Petro Dollars.  Electro Dollars.  Multi dollars.  Reichmarks.  Rins, Rubels, Pounds and Shekels.  It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet.  That is the natural order of things today.  That is the atomic and 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 Beal?  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 get out their linear programming charts, statistical decision theories, 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 Beal.  The world is a college of corporations inexorably determined by the immutable by-laws of business.  The world is a business, Mr Beal.  It has been since man crawled out of the slime.  And our children will live, Mr Beale, to see that perfect world in which there in no war or famine, oppression or brutality.  One vast and ecumenical holding company for whom all men will work to serve a common purpose.  In which all men will hold a share of stock.  All necessities provided.  All anxieties tranquillised.  All boredom amused.  (Money & Countries & Corporations & United States of America & Business & Companies)  Network 1976 Network starring Faye Dunaway & Peter Finch & William Holden & Robert Duvall & Wesley Addy & Ned Beatty & Beatrice Straight & Jordan Charney & William Prince & Lane Smith & Marlene Warfield & Arthur Burghardt, director Sidney Lumet, Jensen to Beale

1,155.  There is no wealth but life.  Life, including all its powers of love, of joy, and of admiration.  That country is the richest which nourishes the greatest number of noble and happy human beings; that man is richest who, having perfected the function of his own life to the utmost, has always the widest helpful influence, both personal, and by means of his possessions, over the lives of others.  (Life's Like That & Wealth & Country & Philathropy)  John Ruskin

68,593.  Those who profess outrageous zeal for the liberty and prosperity of their country, and at the same time infringe her laws, affront her religion and debauch her people, are but disposable quacks.  Soame Jenyns, A Free Enquiry into the Nature and Origin of Evil 1757
