Hegel is like all your psychonaut friends except he didn't need the drugs. "Woah, man, it's like, we're all one, man, the whole world is one mind, right, and history is, like, the world finding itself." He's a lot more fun if you read him in Timothy Leary's voice.

And then it breaks up into Left and Right Hegelians and then you get into Marx and Engels and you go "wait a minute weren't we talking about Napoleon" and you're actually happy to hear about the origins of nihilism because seriously FUCK Rousseau.
