Nietzsche - on the echo of the newspapers

"Our age is an agitate one, and precisely for that reason, not an age of passion; it heats itself up continuously, because it feels that it is not warm -- basically it is freezing.... In our time it is merely by means of an echo that events acquire their `greatness' -- the echo of the newspapers”

~ Nietzsche, 1882
