"We're having one hell of a time getting a handle on this thing, it's typical of the way government operates, there isn't any complaint, there isn't any charge, just harassment from some kid who's unsupervised and is running around at the taxpayer's expense." (2.7.46)
Hammond dislikes the government, whatever the country. To him, the state is an opposing power, a force that prevents him from doing what he wants. He's really the only "taxpayer" he cares about. It's not surprising that Hammond has no concern at all for the social safety net or for the greater good; it's all about number one.
"These animals are genetically engineered to be unable to survive in the real world. They can only live here in Jurassic Park. They are not free at all. They are essentially our prisoners." (3.20.32)
It's fitting that Wu likens Jurassic Park to a prison. He and the others at the park have attempted to build a system that gives them power over their animal creations. For the park to work, they must exercise power over nature… but nature fights back. The prison is overrun, and the inmates escape and survive.
Saying these complicated names was a way of exerting power over the giants, a way of being in control. (3.20.58)
Hammond and his team aren't the only ones seeking control over dinosaurs. Grant believes that, for children, dinosaurs represent the "uncontrollable forces of looming authority," and being able to say the names of dinosaurs is a way that kids respond to this authority.
"We may lose a couple of dinos before we get the rex out of there, but, believe me, we have the park." (4.41.98)
The way Arnold speaks here almost makes it sound as though he's engaged in a game or a war with the forces of nature. And, truth be told, he is. The humans and the dinosaurs are fighting over territory.
