Nasty, Brutish & Short

About NBS

If you look very closely, you’ll see how the body of the towering monarch is made up of miniscule human beings.

I truly hope I do not have to explain the origins of the phrase “Nasty, Brutish & Short.” But I will anyway.

“Nasty, brutish and short” is a line from Thomas Hobbes’ most famous work of political philosophy, “Leviathan,” which has the not-very-catchy subhead of “or the Matter, Forme and Power of a Common-wealth, Ecclesiasticall and Civil.” It was published in 1651. It is one of the foremost works of political and social commentary in the Western World.

And I am a lawyer in private practice in Cincinnati, Ohio.
