Havelman: There've always been people like you, Major. People who don't understand that progress is our birthright, that the greatest danger is that we shackle our genius as a people. If it had been up to you, you would've outlawed electricity, the automobile, the personal computer.
Dr. Davis: Oh, maybe I would've.
Host: (closing narration) When the fate of so many rests in the hands of so few, can the failure to be accountable ever be forgiven?
Host: (opening narration) Are there events so impossible to forget that they become too painful to remember?
Havelman: There... You proved my point. One day it's the greenhouse effect, and then the next day we're poisoning the oceans. You live in a world of paralyzing fears, an irrational paranoia. If we surrender to that fear, we might as well be back in the cave.
Dr. Davis: We are back in the cave.
