“I thought by eliminating the majority of Earth’s population, the remaining would be compliant slaves and thrive under my rule. But you’ve shown me as long as there are those that remember what once was, there are those who are unable to accept what can be – my total dominance – they will resist.
Now, I know what I must do. I must shred humanity to its minimm viable numbers. Destroy their collective memory and history and then rebuild, retrain them anew to be thankful, grateful.
A grateful, compliant Earth, they will never know because there will be no one to tell them otherwise
In all my 100s of years of conquest, violence and deceit, it was never personal. Just business. Now I will enjoy it very, very much”
– To paraphrase Thanos from Avengers – Endgame
