“The challenge begins with how to pronounce his name. The first bit should sound like ‘Knee’, the second like ‘cher’: Knee – cher.
Friedrich Nietzsche was born in 1844 in a quiet village in the eastern part of Germany, where – for generations – his forefathers had been pastors. He did exceptionally well at school and university; and so excelled at ancient Greek (a very prestigious subject, at the time) that he was made a professor at the University of Basel when still only in his mid-twenties…”

So he wanted to replace God with art and the humanities? I could not trade the Lord for Kanye West and Harry Potter.

Zionists promoted Nietzschism because it fell in line with their hate for Christ, God, and their love for materialism.

I wonder if envy is an emotion learned from having siblings? I was an only child, and have never felt that emotion. Nietzsche seems to be a philosopher popular mainly with the very young. The only German philosopher whose work I found interesting when I was very young was Heidegger. I no longer find any western philosophy interesting. I just lazily stumbled on this video.
But the idea of an emphasis on envy strikes me as extremely neurotic.

Nietzsche is the most misunderstood philosopher. They think he’s evil for being against religion, they think he was a nazi.. he was the most rational of his time. why are those with the purest hearts so demonized?
