To the Power of Zero

The herd instinct, then--a power that has now become sovereign — is
something totally different from the instinct of an aristocratic
society: and the value of the units determines the significance of the
sum. --Our entire sociology simply does not know any other instinct than
that of the herd, i. e., that of the sum of zeroes--where every zero has
"egual rights," where it is virtuous to be zero.-
- Nietzsche, "Will to Power" (#53)
