A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
George William Curtis
To me Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater showcases the very reason why humanity is so detached. The connection between Snake and Boss is deep but because of the mission one is forced to kill the other.
That is the crippling fact of our current existence. We are all put into situations where we would prefer to obey and stay in line as apposed to break out of the system and live how we want to live.
In the 21st century everyone will be able to see that we are all just inhabitants of a little celestial body called Earth. - Boss, Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater
