Transcript of Ender's Game

Ender's Game Child Soldiers War heroes. Tools. Weapons. Saviors. "Ender Wiggin must believe that no matter what happens, no adult will ever, ever step in to help him in any way." "Human beings didn't evolve brains in order to lie around on lakes. Killing's the first thing we learned. And a good thing we did, or we'd be dead, and the tigers would own the earth." Anderson -We're going to make him (Ender) the best military commander in history.
Graff -And then put the fate of the world on his shoulders.
Anderson -Cheer up. The buggers may kill us all before he graduates.
Graff -You're right. I feel better already. Colonel Graff
There is no teacher but the enemy. No one but the enemy will tell you what the enemy is going to do. No one but the enemy will ever teach you how to destroy and conquer. Only the enemy tells you where he is strong. And the rules of the game are what you can do to him and what you can stop him from doing to you. I am your enemy from now on. From now on I am your teacher." "I don't care if I pass your test, I don't care if I follow your rules. If you can cheat, so can I. I won't let you beat me unfairly-I'll beat you unfairly first." War is not a game, but the game is their war. They are made into war machines. “I have to win this now, and for all time, or I’ll fight it every day and it will get worse and worse.”
Ruthless and compassionate.
Can a perfect soldier keep his humanity? “‘In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him. I think it’s impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves. And then, in that very moment when I love them-..... I destroy them. I make it impossible for them to ever hurt me again. I grind them and grind them until they don’t exist.’” Ender. His evil actions lead to good results. "
