Last Dog Standing

“The last man is tired of life, takes no risks, and seeks only comfort and security….The last man is the goal that European civilization has apparently set for itself. The lives of the last men are comfortable…. Social conflict is minimized. Nietzsche said that the society of the last man would be too barren to support the growth of great individuals. The last man is possible only by mankind’s having bred an apathetic creature who has no great passion or commitment, who is unable to dream, who merely earns his living and keeps warm. The last men claim to have discovered happiness, but blink every time they say so.”

______ Friedrich Nietsche
