The quote is by Zarkov in Lawrence Auster blog. I think the insight is very intelligent. According to the Wiki, the Eloi are the child-like, frail group, living a banal life of ease on the surface of the earth, while the Morlocks live underground, tending machinery and providing food, clothing and infrastructure for the Eloi. The Morlock feed on the Eloi. Each species evolved from humans. From the film version:
There you have it. The perfect example of an Eloi mentality. The abstraction, "symbolic sign to the citizens that this is a peaceful society," trumps reality. This kind of magical thinking believes that by manipulating symbols, one creates reality. They will sacrifice their children to worship at the alter of liberalism.
Del mar'jen'wel. Tor'col orn. Em'quin, en'bal. Quin'tor Morlocks. Em'quin, Alexander wen'quin. Breen'tan? Tor Morlocks. En'em bal.(It was just a dream. Don't worry, I'm here, you're safe. There are no Morlocks. I'm here, Alexander's here. You see? No Morlocks. We are safe)
