Hegel!

Description: two people are sitting down discussing things.
Person 1: "You see, i base my opinions on pure reason, so there can be no mistake."
Person 2: "That makes sense to me."

Person 1: "What's that noise?"
Person 2: "I don't know."

Hegel, bursting through the wall: "HEGELLLLL!"

Hegel: "All reason is dialectical and situated in a historical moment! No one can escape the ideology of their time, and pure reason is a myth!"

Person 1: "But shouldn't we try to use objective, absolute reason?"
Hegel: "Reason is a direction not an absolute form that we can grasp in the now!"

Description: next scene, someone is contemplating on their own.
Person: "All we need to do is set up a society where we make agreements through free contracts."

Hegel, smashing through the wall again: "Without developing an advanced social consciousness we cannot move to a stage in history where free association is peaceful. We can only make progress towards a better society, we cannot describe or imagine its final form!"
Description: next scene, another person giving their opinion.

Hegel, punching through the floor and coming through: "The greatest happiness in life is to have one's desires fulfilled."

Hegel: "Desires themselves arise out of the social conditions in any particular society, so coherently ordering the fulfillment of desires is a futile task!"

Person: "Okay, so what should we actually DO then?"
Hegel: "Dialectics."
Hegel: "Dialectics!"
Hegel, flames coming out of him: "Dialectics!"
Person: "Okay geez, we get it."
History is nothing more than slow process of understanding Hegel

What? Are you expecting me to explain Hegel here? You are a fool, no one can explain Hegel except for Hegel, and even he can't explain it.
