    General CommentIt's simple.

    There is a higher power amongst us. We don't trust them. But there is the sudden outbreak of Parepin in the water. It's making us more submissive. We'll listen to anything they say.

    They want to be one with us, and us one with them. We down want to fight, so we'll "breathe them in", let them become a part of our lives.

    They will not force theirselves upon us, so their doing it "slowly...".

    They lead us to believe that it will all be for our benefit. There will be "persuasion, coercion, submission, assimilation", but we don't care.

    They are leading us to believe that it's all for "The Greater Good."

    Man, it really pays to do research on Year Zero ^_^.
