A Most Prevalent Condition

Our orange nightmare is not merely one man, but it is the result of many things, as everything is the result of many things. I have talked about it before, but I feel I must say again how political policies have brought us to this point, almost inevitably. There is a nihilist's political system that has given rise to a nihilist's economic practice. I suppose that is the danger of having you around, my friend. You are always there to make nothing the primary part of how human being thinks. You are such a benefit to all that exists, and yet when you are the sole focus - a concentration that does not know it is concentrating - of what is most important, there genuinely is nothing to what those strange others do.

And you bring it all to nothing.
