The thing about Jessep's speech is--though, as Sci points out, the point of the fims was to condemn his attitude--like Olver Stone's Wall Street, it actually had the opposite effect from the intended one. As you may be aware, Wall Street actually became an inspiration to the "corporate raiders" Stone was trying to condemn--and it became a nice recruiting tool for the Street.
That's only because some people are bastards.

In the case of the speech--approve of Jessep's actions or not, there is something to what he says.
No, there isn't. Defending the country doesn't give you the right to break the law.
