A Goon
I know you're out there; I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us; you're afraid of

change. I don't know the future - I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how this

is going to begin. Now, I'm going to hang up this phone, and I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see.

I'm going to show them a world without you - a world without rules, and controls, without borders, or boundaries. A

world...where anything is possible. Where we go from there...is a choice I leave up to you.
