EXCLUSIVE: BOB PAGE INTERVIEW
Affaires le France
AF: ... And now France?
BP: Yes, France. France -- and Europe -- have prospered for thousands of years... it would be foolish to ignore the economic and cultural opportunities that exist here. This country has a huge reserve of talent, in all sectors of the work force, and Page Industries is looking forward to recruiting the best and the brightest.
AF: But what about the turmoil that seems to be afflicting much of the continent, the rise of radical splinter groups such as SCHUSE and Silhouette?
BP: Intimidation through violence is the last resort of the weak... these groups are composed of nothing but frustrated, gullible individuals. We have a very effective security organization that will be working with both local and national authorities to minimize whatever potential for actual harm they present.
AF: So you see yourself working closely with the government?
BP: Very closely...
- The line "Intimidation through violence is the last resort of the weak" is a reference to Isaac Asimov's book Foundation. In this book, the character Salvor Hardin states "Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent".
