Gentlemen, gentlemen! Could we please have a little of that oddly Victorian
decorum with which Nietz the peach coated his 'dynamite.'
Ken I am afraid it was pure ressentiment as defined by your master that egged
you on to the slur of Anthony which provoked his response of the latter day
Loeb/Leopold tribe, which of course enabled you to unleash the very heart of
your ressentiment in a beneathness, a rather un-nietzschean spew. Tsk. Tsk.
It appears to me that a Nietzschean recipe for 'morality as bullshit' that
does not follow Nietz the peach but rather gets rid of him (as he wished)
would point to the "facts on the ground" in all areas of human life today.
There is no overmanliness, no authentic and consistent action, to avail us
peace of mind in this world. Such a vision is still yet to come. We remain of
the tribe of the last men (& women).
We remain upon the stage of world historical nihilism where all the values
are still bottom up. Christendom has become the opposite of its founder's
teaching; democracy has corrupted into oligarchy such as the tragedy of
Greece and the Roman Empire. Nothing will obtain until we work through the
end of this the nihilism of our age.
