Theo behind the scenes (Divergent)
…meanwhile, we go through our lives unaware. The enemy is among us and nobody’s doing anything about it. We don’t have any idea the end is coming. So we had to take matters into our own hands. We had to send them a message.They told you I was crazy, didn’t they? The Pentagon. They said I’d had a psychiatric break. I told them what I’m telling you. That they are here. Collecting data. Making observations. That’s what’s in the briefcase. They’ve been planning for war. They’ve been passing the information via courier right under our noses. We don’t know who they are, but I can tell you what they want. They want to exterminate us. So they’re studying us…our culture, our technology, our science…and they plan to use it against us. One way or another. We’ll find out who they are. But by then, I suppose it won’t really matter, because whatever’s in those cases is gonna destroy us all.
