"Why do we kill them?"
"They're insane."
"And we're not?"
"Are you sane?"
"I think so."
"See? We're sane, they're not."
"So why do we kill them?"
"They're insane, they'll kill us if we don't."
"Even the children, the old, those that don't even know we exist? They'll kill us too?"
"Of course they will. They're our enemies."
"Because they want to kill us."
"So...they want to kill us because they're our enemies, and they're our enemies because they want to kill us?"
"That doesn't make sense."
"Of course it does. They want to kill us, so they're our enemies."
"Yeah, but if they want to kill us because they're our enemies, they can't be our enemies because they want to kill us."
"They can't?"
"No. How do you even know they're our enemies? Have you asked them if they want to kill us?"
"If I went to ask them they'd kill me!"
"How do you know?"
"Because...there are some things you just know."
"Like the fact that we're sane?"
"If we're sane, why do we needlessly kill and discriminate against our fellow human beings? That doesn't sound sane."
"Then you've got a lot to learn. It's normal. It's what they do, so why shouldn't we do it?"
"Because we're not them. We're better. We rise above that."
"That's crazy talk."
"Crazy talk? Seems perfectly sane to me."
"Well it's not."
"Why are the insane people our enemies?"
"We're sane, and they're not, so we should get rid of them."
"How do you know if someone's insane?"
"If they ask too many questions."
