“My kind of pity is a feeling which I find no name adequate. I sense it especially at the idea of the lot of mankind, as when I observe with anguish and contempt the politics of present-day Europe, which is, under all circumstances, also working at the web of the future of all men.”
—F. Nietzsche, The Will to Power, §367 (edited excerpt).
