Bum 1: Listen to this. Listen to what is written in this book here: I have not come into this world to make men better but to exploit their weaknesses.

Bum 2: Who said that?

B1: Adolf Hitler.

B2: It's a scary pronouncement, but I'll tell you something. I would be even more frightened of the one who says: I have not come into this world to exploit the weaknesses of men but to make men better.

B1: You don’t think humanity should be improved.

B2: What do I know of humanity. I could tell you more about red radishes.
