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 try 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 seventy years, HYDRA has been secretly feeding crisis, reaping war.
And when history did not cooperate, history was changed.

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.

We won, Captain.
