Eric is attempting to explain there is no common sense left anymore; there is only irrational hate and violence,

Listen Ralph. Never mind what's sense. That's gone-'

`Never mind about the Chief-'

`-you got to go for your own good.'

`The Chief and Roger-'

`-yes, Roger-'

`They hate you, Ralph. They're going to do you.'

`They're going to hunt you to-morrow.'"

ERic is telling Ralph that there is nothing left to do,there is no sense to appeal to. He is on his own.
