The Desert Grows

"The desert grows: woe to him who harbors deserts!” ~ Nietzsche in Thus Spake Zarathustra. Nietzsche is lamenting the rise of deserts in the minds of men. He is saying that the moralists and idealists have accepted false ideologies, and the characterless and rationalists have turned towards nihilism. He is proclaiming that an apocalypse is imminent because there is no one left who possess the will to save civilization from disintegration.
