Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Dr. Arnim Zola: Cut off one head two more shall take its place.

Steve Rogers: Arlim Zola was a German scientist who worked with the Red Skull. He's been dead for years.
Dr. Arnim Zola: [inside a machine] First correction, I am Swiss. Second, look around you, I have never been more alive! In 1972, I received a terminal diagnosis. Science could not save my body. My mind, however, that was worth saving... on two hundred thousand feet of data banks! You are standing in my brain!

[Steve smashes in Zola's screen]
Dr. Arnim Zola: [appears on another screen] As I was saying...

Dr. Arnim Zola: [to Steve] We are both men out of time.

Dr. Arnim Zola: People will fight for their freedom if people try to take it from them. But if you cause enough trouble, people will willingly give up their freedom for a more secure world.

Natasha Romanoff: After WWII, S.H.I.E.L.D. recruited German scientists with strategic value.
Dr. Arnim Zola: So I could help their cause. I also helped my own.
Steve Rogers: HYDRA died with the Red Skull.
Dr. Arnim Zola: Cut off one head, two more shall take its place.

Dr. Arnim Zola: HYDRA was founded on the belief that humanity could not be trusted with its own freedom. What we did not realize was that if you tried to take that freedom, they resist. The war taught us much. Humanity needed to surrender its freedom willingly. After the war, S.H.I.E.L.D. was founded, and I was recruited. The new HYDRA grew, a beautiful parasite inside S.H.I.E.L.D. For 70 years, HYDRA has been secretly feeding crises, reaping war. And when history did not cooperate, history was changed.
Natasha Romanoff: That's impossible. S.H.I.E.L.D. would've stopped you.
Dr. Arnim Zola: Accidents will happen. HYDRA created a world so chaotic that humanity is finally ready to sacrifice its freedom to gain its security. Once the purification process is complete, HYDRA's New World Order will arise. We won, Captain. Your death amounts to the same as your life, a zero sum!
