   Rome also did not fall in one day...

   A revolution, in that most conservative way, leading to utter psychology,
fantastic individualisation, democratized in such a way that everyone has a
right to sputter their philosophies out on the world. The 'revolution' which in
fact only led to the worsening of the possibility for the advent of such a thing
as the 'overman'.

  The revolution has become the anti-thesis of Nietzsche, it would seem.
