"Pirates are evil? The Marines are righteous? These terms have always changed throughout the course of history! Kids who have never experienced joy and kids who have never experienced suffering have different values! Only those who stand at the top determine what's wrong and what's right! Justice will prevail, you say? But of course it will! The victors alone are justice!"
― Donquixote Doflamingo (One Piece)
