“Nietzsche is very popular with the art community....”


written by jonathan kelly on 19/11/2006

Nietzsche is very popular with the art community. Claiming to be Polish nobility, he was once a good friend of Richard Wagner, later to renounce him as decadent.

His work is incredibly revealing of the total corruption of morality in bourgeois society; as it is now it was then. Nietzsche knew and was concerned that morals were nothing to do with the truth, which is only beings objective actuality but with stifling it. They were a racket used by the bourgeois to continue the status quo.

Nietzsche wanted instead a morality of an aristocratic class instinctive spectacularly creative; nothing to do with being a slave to the middle class. He believed the constraints of the Judeo-Christian world of the herd morality of slave could be overcome with Dionysian and Apollonian view points. Overcoming evil then, that is all theory. This would eventually lead to there being 'supermen' whom would lead mankind into a new and ideal world with their wisdom.

Nietzsche was no Nazi, and they used what they wanted of his thought. Their superman was not what Nietzsche had in mind. Nazi's were the petty bourgeoisie over achieving, school teachers and security guards, and always the most ordinary of people promoted above their station in life, which was not what Nietzsche wanted. Nietzsche wanted aristocratic virtues, not petty lower middle class jobs-worths full of resentment.

Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil states we are without limitations if we engage in a heroic struggle of our own self affirmation. Nietzsche was against total blind immorality in bourgeois society. He found the Ancient Greeks had answers to overcome it. Suffering is, he thought, what makes you into a rounded person. He thought you would never be anyone if you do not suffer. These aphorisms in this book can be used by you to help you to decide on your own values.
