Beneath The Planet Of The Apes (1970)

I'll tell you one thing every good soldier knows. The only thing that counts in the end is power. Naked, merciless force! Members of the Citizens' Council, I am a simple soldier, and as a soldier, I see things simply. I don't say all humans are evil simply because their skin is white. No. But our great Lawgiver tells us that never will the human have the ape's divine faculty for being able to distinguish between evil and good. The only good human is a dead human! But those fortunate enough to remain alive will have the privilege of being used by our Minister of Science, the good Dr. Zaius. 

The Forbidden Zone has been closed for centuries, and rightly so. However, we now have evidence that that vast barren area is inhabited. By what or by whom we don't know, but if they live, and live they do, then they must eat. Now we must replenish the lands that were ravaged by the humans with new improved feeding grounds, and these grounds we can obtain in the once Forbidden Zone. It is our holy duty to enter it, to put the marks of our guns, wheels, and flags upon it! To expand the boundaries of our ineluctable power. And to invade. Invade! Invade! Invade!
