Nietzsche didn't actually invent Nihilism, that was actually Arthur Schopenhauer. Arthur Schopenhauer was the saddest man to ever live and liked to complain like a woman. "They tell us that suicide is the greatest piece of cowardice... that suicide is wrong; when it is quite obvious that there is nothing in the world to which every man has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person." Boo hoo; you took away my freedom to kill myself. You filthy baby, I'll kill you myself if you don’t stop blaspheming against the Lord. "With people of limited ability modesty is merely honesty. But with those who possess great talent it is hypocrisy." Well maybe so Schopenhauer, but that doesn’t change the fact that you are a commie fag junky.
Nihilism is considered really cool by chicks who try to be German and listen to industrial music and sleep around with everyone while glaring with a vacant evil stare at me. It is also accorded an indifferent nod by the counter culture of America. Why it is associated with Nietzsche is another matter. He certainly liked Schopenhauer in his early developing years, but Nietzsche was never a Nihilist. Perhaps posing intellectuals get confused about which philosopher is which. It's an easy mistake to make since both Schopenhauer and Nietzsche are incurably insane and evil. Also it should be remembered that posing intellectuals in America don't read, only pretend to read. So when putting on a mask of idolizing Nietzsche, they are trying to associate themselves with his intellectual tradition, which Nihilism is the most popular. His name is more important then his works to someone who only cares about building his own image. What the counter culture demonite does not realize, that everyone he is trying to impress is too busy wearing a mask themselves to notice anyone else. Ever watch two idiots try to show one another what music they listen to at the same time? It's like watching a circus of turtles. "Dude, that’s not bad man."
Nietzsche was also very insane. I remember reading about Nietzsche when he taught at some German prestigious university. This student came up to him after a lecture to ask him a question. Nietzsche literally jumped out of his seat and started going at the young man with wide eyes screaming about the eternal smile of the sky and "THAT BLUE SKY OF THE HELLAS! WE ARE GOING TOGETHER" Nietzsche backed the poor kid into a wall, screaming all the way. Then suddenly Nietzsche realized that the kid was frightened by his enthusiasm and he quickly walked out of the classroom and never spoke to him again. Nietzsche didn’t have the fun insanity like this reporter did. He had that scared anxiety uncomfortable version, which I view as a symptom of being dogged by bad spirits. I speak from personal experience on that. Anyone who knew Philip Hudson in high school can remember him radiating an uncomfortable creepiness. I always seemed to do the wrong thing and offend people. It happens when the nefarious influences stain your aura. Nietzsche was riddled with this, though it was obvious he possessed a very unique and powerful insight that set him well apart from average men.
But I don't like him. I don't like what he stands for. When reading his book Thus Sprach Zarathustra I get really mad and want to beat up Satanists. Nitche reportedly had "visions" or dreams of Zaraoaster long before he wrote his famous book Thus Spoke Zarathustra. It was not until later that he was visited by the sprit of Zaroaster while walking in the Swiss mountains at some cabin he was vacationing in. The spirit spoke to him, claiming to be Zaroaster, the founder of the Zaroastrian faith of antiquity. It explained to Nietzsche that it had to correct an error, years ago when Zaroaster had founded his religion he had made a mistake by inventing morality. Yes, apparently to Nietzsche Zaraoster had been the first to invent morality, or the first to preach a higher moral order in opposition of the animalistic side of human behavior. Now he intended to use Nietzsche as a mediator to correct his mistake and bring this new message to the people:
What is good? Everything that heightens the feeling of power in man, the will to power, power itself.
What’s is bad? Everything that is born of weakness.
THUS SPRACH ZARATHUSTRA is meant to imply that it was not Nietzsche who was author, but Zaroaster himself. Look it up you fools.
Nietzsche hated the god Apollo, the sun king and master of order. He idolized Dionysus, the god of pleasure and ecstasy. He didn't actually believe in these gods as entities, but as psychological associations that were relevant to the western mind. As metaphors of human behavior and of western thought and society. I however do view these deities as entities. I view them as angels and demons. To me Apollo can be none other then Michael the Archangel, or Mitra or Mithras or Mikhail or however you want to say his name. Dyonisis is probably Lilith, a female demon in the book of Isaiah. Even though Dionysus is male in the Greek tradition, to me he feels very female, lets call her she. She definitely has a dark motif about her and whenever I think on her my "Phil's intuition" always puts up red flags. I don't like the way her name feels. There are different "versions" of Dyonisis, some compare him to Osiris, as a suffering god who was killed and resurrected for mankind. Modern Neopagans view Dionysus in different lights, depending largely on the individual sects and the other gods worshipped by a sect. Dionysus is often seen as the god of Earthly Delights and is thought to play a role in euphoria. In America, some Hellenistic Neopagan sects forbid the worship of Dionysus, because Dionysus worship is associated with hedonism
So it goes, Nietzsche was all up her skirt. It was sort of like his theme god. He saw Dionysus as representing the best possible alignment for human behavior. Sort of like Michael the Archangel is to me. Nietzsche would use her name everywhere, when he insulted the anti-Semites he wrote, "I was just out having all the anti-Semitists shot, signed Dionysus." Yes he hated anti-Semites, and was not akin to Hitler at all. I think Hitler liked Nietzsche because of his pro "humanity is one hundred percent about power, the only things humans do is try to dominate others and acquire respect, morality is counterproductive and sometimes even hostile to the human conquest for power, thus it is irrational and invalid" stance. I think Nitzche's obsession with Dionisus is a sign that Dionysus was very attracted to Nietzsche, and influenced him a lot, for ill. He was a very potent man and I think he was used to Dionysus' ends. He had a profound impact on many of the darker personalities of modern history, most notably Hitler and the Nazis. Nietzsche even predicted this:
I know my fate. One day there will be associated with my name the recollection
Of something frightful - of a crisis like no other before on earth, of the profoundest collision of conscience,
Of a decision evoked against everything that until then had been believed in, demanded, sanctified.
I am not a man. I am dynamite.
I think that Dionysus used this dynomite to blow up goodness in the world (I AM AWARE OF MY OWN METAPHORS). It is true that most people associate Nietzsche with Hitler and anti-Semitism. I also think that at a smaller level anyone who really likes Nietzsche must be careful of this Dionysus taint. It will draw his attention. Just look. What kinds of kids like Nietzsche? Depressed, anxiety prone, outsider, pseudo-Nihilist. It's a bad force. Nietzsche lived the last years of his life as a madman who rarely spoke to anyone and stayed in his room, his sister had to take care of him. He was once the most respected philosopher in Europe. He died of a stroke.
It was Dionysus, and not Zaroaster who visited Nietzsche in those Swiss mountains. Zaroaster is good and likes god.
