Quotable: "... why they will win."

... And that is why they will win. Because they believe everyone should live and think just like them. And we shall lose because we don't care one way or another how they live. We just worry about ourselves.

Who are the "they" you are referring to?
I am not referring to anyone. The character is referring to the Yankees/Northerners during the Civil War. But the thought behind the statement has much broader application than the time and place of its setting in the film. That is why I have purposely decontextualized it in the post.
