    "The maintenance of the military state is the last means of all of acquiring or maintaining the great tradition with regard to the supreme type of man, the strong type. And all concepts that perpetuate enmity and difference of rank between states - for example nationalism, protective tariffs - may be sanctioned in that light".
    [Nietzsche, Thw Will To Power, 729]

    Might I add that there is a feeling abroad here that Nietzsche was a "nihilist" as if by profession; this is not so.
    While he studied Nihilism, and recognised that this Nihilism was a condition of late European culture and therefore infects us all [and he did not exempt himself from that, calling himself at one time - with that relish of irony he knew so well - a 'perfect nihilist'], his whole philosophy was engaged with OVERCOMING Nihilism.
    Why are there beings at all, & why not rather nothing?
    [Leibniz/Heidegger]

    Thumbs Up You know you're obsessed with FW Nietzsche when...

    A couple of years ago I saw some of these points posted at a board devoted to my favourite philosopher FW Nietzsche. I saved them, and periodically add some of my own points to this list. Feel free to do the same.

    You know you're totally obsessed with Nietzsche when….

    1. You grow a moustache, just like his, even if you're female.

    2. You insist that you're an Atheist from "instinct".

    3. You only respond when being addressed as “DER ÜBERMENSCH".

    4. When you turn 30, you leave your home and the lake of your home, etc.

    5. You learnt German specifically to read his works.

    6. You attempt to learn all the languages that he knew.

    7. You stand next to your local street preacher and read loudly from "Thus Spoke Zarathustra".

    8. You find you become nauseous when you listen to Wagner.

    9. Before doing anything, you announce firmly: "This is an expression of 'Der Wille Zur Macht!'"

    10. You always write like he did.

    11. You own every book he wrote.

    12. Your personal library contains every book his did.

    13. You travel to all the places he went.

    14. You hand out copies of "The Parable of the Madman" to Priests.

    15. You insist that "gay" means "joyful".

    16. You maintain that "Kant was an idiot" whenever someone mentions him.

    17. You can recite entire chapters of his work verbatim. In English and German.

    18. You attach a large portrait of him above your bed.

    19. You denounce Plato as a "bore" whenever he's mentioned.

    20. You keep trying to explain to people that "God is dead".

    21. You think there was a problem with Socrates.

    22. You learnt how to play music, in order to honour his compositions.

    23. You claim to be an "immoralist."

    24. You were saddened, yet remained "hard", upon hearing of Hollingdale's death.

    25. You keep the same routine he did, before his collapse.

    26. You're suspicious that your sister may try to distort things you write.

    27. You custom make t-shirts with his picture on them.

    28. The walls in your room are covered with his aphorisms.

    29. You climb mountains.

    30. You look at modern bands while thinking: "Only sick music makes money nowadays."

    31. You study Philology.

    32. You become a Philology professor.

    33. You find that he features in all of your dreams.

    34. You post on 'The Nietzsche Channel' message board.

    35. You created and maintain 'The Nietzsche Channel'. (We're glad you did, though)

    36. You purchase every book about him.

    37. You write angry letters to the publishers of such books, if their facts are wrong.

    38. You find yourself thinking of others as "decadent".

    39. You name your pet "Zarathustra", or "Dionysus".

    40. You proclaim yourself to be a "free spirit".

    41. Happiness, to you, is "The feeling that power increases--that resistance is overcome."

    42. Suffering an injury, you repeat "Increscunt animi, virescit volnere virtus."

    43. You refuse to pity.

    44. You celebrate his birthday.

    45. You never, ever, ever drink alcohol.

    46. You live alone, and take consolation with the fact that you must be a Beast, God, or Philosopher.

    47. You read portions of his work religiously, before going to sleep.

    48. You speak to your heart.

    49. You change your name to Friedrich or Wilhelm, even if you're female.

    50. You name your daughter Ariadne.

    51. You stubbornly pretend to be a "Polish nobleman."

    52. You good-naturedly complain that Stendhal robbed you of the best atheist joke, which precisely you could have made: "God's only excuse is that he does not exist."

    53. You add to this list.

    I was leafing through Nietzsche's books yesterday a little and reading up on my favourite chapters. This is my random quote for today:

    "Goethe conceived a human being who would be strong, highly educated, skillful in all bodily matters, self-controlled, reverent toward himself, and who might dare to afford the whole range and wealth of being natural, being strong enough for such freedom; the man of tolerance, not from weakness but from strength, because he knows how to use to his advantage even that from which the average nature would perish; the man for whom there is no longer anything that is forbidden--unless it be weakness, whether called vice or virtue.

    Such a spirit who has become free stands amid the cosmos with a joyous and trusting fatalism, in the faith that only the particular is loathesome, and that all is redeemed and affirmed in the whole--he does not negate anymore. Such a faith, however, is the highest of all possible faiths: I have baptized it with the name of Dionysus."

    "slavic" languages are absolutely arteficial (Read "slawenlegende"). The "glagolica", invented by a bunch of monks, is nothing but an ancient esperanto, creating new words, definitions and alphabet out of regional slangs.

    The craddle of European Civilization comes from the North. All blond people originate from the north. So if you see a blond-blue eyed Slovene, Russian, Czech, Polak ect., you can be 100% sure that his ancient ancestors originated from "Germanics" (Germanic = Nordic).
    "slovenja" was the settelment of the Langobards = Germanics/Teutons. "Poland" of the Goths and East-Vandals ect. ect. What do "slavs" tell us about their origin?
    Some silly story that they originate from some swamps in the east and popped out of no where into history.

    So you see my dear "Gorostan" [=Triglav], you are in reality a "Germanic" indoctrinated with panslav propaganda and historic fantasy stories. ~Dr. Brandt, former TNP and Skadi member
