Quora answer: Have you changed your life because of the 2012 prophecy that the world is going to end?

May 22 2014

I changed when I realized that humanity has not, they are just as gullible as ever, taken in by snake oil salesmen of every stripe, always ready to try another Apocalypse on for size after the last one fizzled out. I changed because I was saddened by this illness in the souls of so many, with no cure in sight. I felt pity. And that was a real change for me, because Nietzsche denigrates pity the most of all emotions. I saw the last man blinking, blinking . . . and I felt pity.

The Last men are those obsessed with the ending of everything, rather than beginnings . . .
