If you're going to steal, steal big. If you're going to lie, tell a lie so big that, often enough repeated, it will come to be the truth. Do not pilfer, or tell fibs. You'll just get caught and you'll be sorry afterwards. About the biggest thing you can steal is a man's life. That takes everything he has. It doesn't leave youwith much, of course, except his dead flesh. Slavery steals his life also, except that the use of his days becomes the possession, for so long as he hangs on, of another person. The fratricidal war this film celebrates was about stealing, both big and small, and changing the rules about what was stealing and what wasn't. Compared to stealing lives, and stealing days, stealing a locomotive scarcely seems worth discussion.
