Don Quixote—The Last Knight

The modern man is helpless. He is tired of living. He is fed up with change. His mind is filled with dark apocalyptic thoughts. He feels such contempt and disgust for his fellow human beings that he takes social distancing as a virtue. Don Quixote is not like the modern man. He still has some life in him. He still loves humanity. Attired in his rusty armor, astride his wretched old horse, Don Quixote is setting out with Sancho Panza, who is on his donkey. They are the world’s last knights, humanity’s last hope. They will defy lockdowns and fight for our civil liberties.
