He Who Fights Monsters by AmericanDreaming He Who Fights Monsters by AmericanDreaming
From "Beyond Good and Evil" (1886), By Friedrich Nietzsche.

I decided to apply Nietzsche's aphorism in one particular direction with this picture, but its applications are myriad. Heed his wise words. Principles matter.

He opposed nihilism, he warned that it was a condition occurring in society when existing ethical systems deteriorate and there is nothing to replace them and that the absence of the creation of post-theist ethics would encourage nihilism and massive crisis in societies. In his work Thus Spoke Zarathustra he proposes means to surpass nihilism.

Does who said the quote matter more than what it says?

Ok. I was thinking about one of Ortega y Gasset...

Jóvenes, haced política porque si no la hacéis, se hará igual y probablemente en vuestra contra.

Young people, get into politics. Because if you don’t, it’ll keep working as usual and will probably turn against you.

(I think that's the translation...)

It shall be done, and I'm leap-frogging it to the front of the queue. Look for it tomorrow.

Very well said. The hyper-focusing on these "monsters" may play a role, I agree. I would add to that the toxic effect of echo-chambers, and also the dangers of only fighting against something, not fighting for something. When you are driven primarily by opposition to something, rather than by sound guiding principles, there is little retraining you from becoming that which you oppose.
