Three Days of the Condor

Higgins: It's simple economics. Today it's oil, right? In 10 or 15 years … food, plutonium. Maybe even sooner. Now, what do you think the people are gonna want us to do then?

Turner: Ask them.

Higgins: Not now. Then. Ask them when they're running out. Ask them when there’s no heat in their homes and they’re cold. Ask them when their engines stop. Ask them when people who’ve never known hunger start going hungry. You want to know something? They won't want us to ask them. They'll just want us to get it for them.

That may have been the plan then, but the plan now appears to be just to shoot us. It's a hell of a lot easier and a lot cheaper than sharing the remaining water, food, and energy with us.

That's what happens when corporations not beholden to any nation state own everything.
