If you show me a grand secular utopian ideal, I'll show you rivers of blood in the offing. Secular utopias always end in war, famine and mass death.
These people will never change. They are incapable of learning. They will never be able to adapt in any sense other than delegating responsibility to the State. It is all they can understand and it is all they will ever be able to understand. They cannot benefit from the lessons of the past because they cannot concede there are lessons in the past.
"The last man blinks and he says to himself, formerly, all the world was mad, you know. The last man always believes his generation is the first to see clearly, when in fact it is the last generation for the very reason it is incapable of seeing anything altogether."
- Friedrich Nietszche
Nietszche celebrated the appearance of the last man because he always believed it was a sign that a tired, senile old world had come to the end of its lifespan and was about to collapse and give birth to a set of new possibilities. Friedrich regarded the last man as the most horrible of all creatures because such people not only believed themselves to be the last men but thought they were the best men as well, when in fact there is never any human being worse than the last man and no fate more terrible than the goals that the last man seeks. If you've ever spent ten minutes in a socialist hospital or stood in line in a bureacracy you'll know why Zarathrustra was right.
