The Coldest of All Cold Monsters

A cartoon courtesy of my brother Joe:

“State is the name for the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly it tells lies; and this lie crawls out of its mouth: ‘I, the state, am the people.’ . . . But the state lies in all the tongues of good and evil; and whatever it has, it has stolen. Everything about it is false; it bites with stolen teeth, and it snarls. Even its very entrails are false. . . State I call it where all are poison-drinkers, the good and the base: state, where the slow suicide of all- is called ‘life’. . . . There where the state ceases, only there does the human being who is not superfluous: there the song of the one who is necessary begins, the unique and irreplaceable melody.”

-Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra
