    Terminator 2: Judgment Day


    “The Terminator films are not really about the human race getting killed off by future machines. They’re about us losing touch with our humanity and becoming machines, which allows us to kill and brutalize each other. Cops think of all non-cops as less than they are, stupid, weak, and evil, they dehumanize the people they are sworn to protect and desensitize themselves in order to do that job.”
