Massey: Ignoring for a moment the fact that we're going to get our pants sued off, I think I know where we should be sending the food.
Massey: The Infracrats are what's left of the Central Government. They control the belt of annie-plants called the "Stationwaist."
Massey: If we send them the food, power will be consolidated in one place, and they can restore order.
Ennesby: So you like tyranny, then?
Massey: No, but a grateful tyrant can sweep a lawsuit under the rug faster than you can say "Honey, who is that knocking on our door so late at night?"
