“That some should rule and others be ruled is a thing not only necessary, but expedient; from the hour of their birth, some are marked out for subjection, others for rule.” – Aristotle
Excellent essay. Nietzsche is so misunderstood.
Thank You Carson.
Slaves of self victimhood.
I think you are saying that those who readily accepted the official government story are slaves at heart. That likely extends to the American Congress, WH, and possibly the Supreme Court - which might explain why they cannot confront the school shootings et al. Damn, now I have to read Nietzsche.
I think the issue goes further back and is quite simple. Humans are animals, omnivores; we are both predators and prey. The “master/slave” mentality is equivalent to acting like predator/prey. It’s literally in our DNA.
What separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom is consciousness. Conscious humans, those who actively manage to keep their egos in check, move from being an animal, an instinctual predator/prey, to freedom, our ability to choose for ourselves.
