Manipulation Is Power

Much Ado About Nothing.

Book Quote

DON JOHN
I wonder that thou (being, as thou say'st thou art, born
under Saturn) goest about to apply a moral medicine to a
mortifying mischief. I cannot hide what I am: I must be sad when
I have cause, and smile at no man's jests; eat when I have
stomach, and wait for no man's leisure; sleep when I am drowsy,
and tend on no man's business; laugh when I am merry, and claw no man in his humor. (1.3.10)


"The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words."- Philip K. Dick

Legends

Legends is a TV show about a FBI deep cover operative. Martin Odum, the protagonist, uses manipulation to work his ways into criminal networks and expose their plots. He soon finds out something in his past wasn't right, and that his whole life was being manipulated. Soon he is on a quest for his true identity.
