Dear Dr. Breen. Why has the Combine seen fit to suppress our reproductive cycle? Sincerely, A Concerned Citizen.

Dear Dr. Breen. Why has the Combine seen fit to suppress our reproductive cycle? Sincerely, A Concerned Citizen.' Thank you for writing, Concerned. Of course your question touches on one of the basic biological impulses, with all its associated hopes and fears for the future of the species. I also detect some unspoken questions. Do our benefactors really know what's best for us? What gives them the right to make this kind of decision for mankind? Will they ever deactivate the suppression field and let us breed again? Allow me to address the anxieties underlying your concerns, rather than try to answer every possible question you might have left unvoiced. First, let us consider the fact that for the first time ever, as a species, immortality is in our reach. This simple fact has far-reaching implications. It requires radical rethinking and revision of our genetic imperatives. It also requires planning and forethought that run in direct opposition to our neural pre-sets. I find it helpful at times like these to remind myself that our true enemy is Instinct. Instinct was our mother when we were an infant species. Instinct cuddled us and kept us safe in those hardscrabble years when we hardened our sticks and cooked our first meals above a meager fire and started at the shadows that leapt upon the cavern's walls. But inseparable from Instinct is its dark twin, Superstition. Instinct is inextricably bound to unreasoning impulses, and today we clearly see its true nature. Instinct has just become aware of its irrelevance, and like a cornered beast, it will not go down without a bloody fight. Instinct would inflict a fatal injury on our species. Instinct creates its own oppressors, and bids us rise up against them. Instinct tells us that the unknown is a threat, rather than an opportunity. Instinct slyly and covertly compels us away from change and progress. Instinct, therefore, must be expunged. It must be fought tooth and nail, beginning with the basest of human urges:

The urge to reproduce. We should thank our benefactors for giving us respite from this overpowering force. They have thrown a switch and exorcised our demons in a single stroke. They have given us the strength we never could have summoned to overcome this compulsion. They have given us purpose. They have turned our eyes toward the stars. Let me assure you that the suppressing field will be shut off on the day that we have mastered ourselves... the day we can prove we no longer need it. And that day of transformation, I have it on good authority, is close at hand.

Dear dr. Breen. Why does the combine feel the need to limit our housing to small apartments that we must share with others? Sincerely, a concerned citizen.

BreenGrub

Thank you for writing, concerned. To put it simply, the Combine knows anything to grand like a large housing will make citizens grow ill with power, causing unforeseen consequences. Humanity must learn humility before becoming immortal.

And cramped spaces make It uncomfortable for people to speak openly, Which makes It harder for them to organize crime, Especially when I'm around. Although I need to work on my explanation of where I'm getting my extra food from.

Dear Dr. Breen, When will you, the administrator of the Black Mesa research facility at the time of the incident that led to the portal storms and the subsequent seven hours war, shed us some light on what really happened that day? I am severely concerned that you, the man who oversaw the entire experiment that led us to the situation we face right now, might be a power hungry megalomaniac who has purposefully sabotaged the entire operation in order to allow unknown forces (which i believe were already known by you at that point.) into our planet and attain absolute power over it. Sincerely, a very concerned citizen. P.S. Don't order my arrest i beg you.

Thank you for writing, severely conceded. Truth be told I spilt coffee on one of the machines in Sector C causing the unfortunate Resonance Cascade. After I gained power I wanted to be able to look down in everyone who had held me back. I was and still am very spiteful of humanity, for reasons I will not go into today. I want humanity to pitifully suffer, and to look to me and feel the most violent anger possible. Hopefully more citizens join the rebellion so I may kill them all. Sincerely Dr. Breen

To get out of the Black Mesa Incident

Dr. Isaac Kleiner

Dear Administrator. I asked for a raise two decades ago. Where's my raise?

BreenGrub

Tell me you exact location with coordinates and I’ll send lots of soldier to give you that raise!

Dear Dr. Breen. Although this site is great to express our feelings towards the Combine, There are those who use this site to organize and recruit people with rebellious thoughts. Is there anything that is being done to prevent this? Sincerely, A Loyal Citizen.

BreenGrub

Well my very loyal citizen, extra food points for you! If you see any regressive citizens promoting the rebellious cause, report them immediately. If your friends or family are having rebellious thoughts, try to reason with them. If they will not listen to reason then you MUST report them for the safety of humanity.

Yeah, Though my family was taken from me during the relocation, I'm sure they're safe and behaving properly wherever they are. But I can have my eyes and ears open on the street and in my housing block.

WHAT!! in City 20, Rome, Italy? If they got relocated to that place then I'm not surprised they're dead. Tell me did they die fighting in the Colosseum? Or do to the big collapse of the city?

I think you're thinking of black mesa, not City 20
