Just a random thought on how a nihilist would behave in the current socio-political milieu. Nihilism as an ideology came in vogue in early 20th Century Russia with a group of revolutionaries who were highly fed by all contemporary forms of rulers and government structures. They started to believe that nothing good can happen in Russia of that time even if a new regime replaces the existing one. As a result, they rejected all the solutions that were contemplated during that time. Today the term is used more often to denote a person who is very pessimist about everything that exist in his or her surroundings. The cartoon, however, uses the idea in a slightly different sense of meaning of the term.
