>Long ago Friedrich Nietzsche perceived how Western civilization was moving in the direction of the Last Man, an apathetic creature with no great passion or commitment. Unable to dream, tired of life, he takes no risks, seeking only comfort and security: “A little poison now and then: that makes for pleasant dreams. And much poison at the end, for a pleasant death. They have their little pleasures for the day, and their little pleasures for the night, but they have a regard for health. ‘We have discovered happiness,’ say the Last Men, and they blink.”
What is wrong with this lifestyle? Sounds like the best way to live one's life. You're lucky to not live in a warzone, a 3rd world country, under an oppressive regime or all 3 at the same time. Why not make everything comfortable, listen to music, watch films, take drugs etc etc?
