    Nietzsche Kritik

    Nietzsche should never be read literally. Much of what he says is contextual to his understanding of the world and metaphorical. Nietzsche is not as big of an asshole as many people mistakenly perceive him to be. Contextually he would never say that we can just fuck Africa and leave them alone. He DOES say the manner in which we approach suffering in Africa is wrong. The systems of morality and the justification for action are terribly askew. Physical existence is the least of our worries. The way in which we approach physical existence or "life" is what truly constitutes the importance of being. In the 3rd chapter of the Gay Science he creates a distinction between society. He defines a noble caste and a common caste. The common caste is composed of those individuals that are always self-serving and seeking self-advancement. The noble caste is composed of those who may bring about disadvantage to themselves for the advancement of someone else. (This is a really short hacking of that concept but if you have any more questions just PM and catch me online.) The action of "aid to africa" is not what Nietzsche would criticize but the question mark, why. In Beyond Good and Evil, he creates a distinction of morality. He says there is only a Master morality and Slave morality that drives our actions. Master morality is that which is composed of nobility and embraces the will to power (which should not be taken literally as a will to physical power). All actions even those to help others are only taken as an assertion of one's full embracement of life and overabundance of nobility and power. These actions are not taken out of pity or sympathy for suffering. Slave morality is that which is composed of a constant calling for equality, salvation, aid for suffering, realms of pity, etc... All that constitutes our current justifications for actions. He says that the binary of good and evil has now disrupted our understanding of life and that this binary is the constitution of slave morality. The action is not what Nietzsche would oppose, the justification for that action or the process of establishing an action is what would be content of opposition. This is pretty short because I can't stand typing all of this out. If you have any questions just hit me up.

  6. very true, there is great literature about how "serving" destroys the stigma involved with felony convictions and allows for societal reintegration, etc... those CP's aren't very competitive or effective.

  9. Hey this isn't going anywhere at this point. People are just gonna bash on those who pointed out the words and those people are gonna take offense to their personal belief and reply with hostility. This thread IS losing its point. Those who are interested should tell Samin. However, I do think that people should have more respect and should take into consideration other people's viewpoint. One of the main reasons I debate is to open up and gain a broader perspective of different situations. If someone is offended by what you say, just say sorry, correct it, and that is it. It may not be particularly offensive to you because you may not have meant it in such a way, but you should still mature and acknowledge that what others' feel just MAY be important. The last thing that should happen is a gender support/bash party. PS. This isn't directed towards anyone specific. I think this is a generic concept that everyone should try to embrace.
