  • Journalist: Personne ne sait ce qui se passe aujourd'hui parce que personne ne veut qu'il se passe quelque chose, en réalité on ne sait jamais ce qu'il se passe on sait seulement ce que l'on veut qu'il se passe, et c'est comme ça que les choses arrivent. En 17 Lénine et ses camarades ne disaient pas: Nous allons faire la révolution parce que nous voulons la révolution. Ils disaient " Toutes les conditions de la révolutions sont réunies, la révolution est inéluctable !" Ils ont fait la révolution qui n'aurait jamais eu lieu, s'il ne l'avait pas faite et qu'il n'aurait pas faite s'ils n'avaient pas pensé qu'elle était inéluctable uniquement parce qu'ils le voulaient. A chaque fois que quelque chose a bougé dans ce monde ça a toujours été pour le pire! Voilà pourquoi personne ne bouge, personne n'ose provoquer l'avenir ! Faudrait être fou pour provoquer l'avenir ! Faudrait être fou pour risquer de provoquer un nouveau 19 un nouveau 40 ou un nouveau 37.

    Journalist: Si parce qu'il y aura toujours des fous et des cons pour les suivre et des sages pour ne rien faire...

    Journalist: I don't think you can catch pneumonia!
