Plain old Zod...

Never attempt to reason with people who know they are right.

It was slow going at first, but I'm really starting to get into God Emperor Of Dune. I enjoy sci-fi books that don't read as sci-fi books. Take out the laserguns, spaceships, and a few other minor things and it turns out it's simply a book of political theory and anthropological analysis. Herbert brings up some highly interesting ideas and makes a legion of quotable statements about Leto's view of how humanity actually functions. I may have to dive back into philosophy when I'm done with this book.
