The Weak and Ill-Constituted Shall Perish

Post by RCavallius » Thu May 25, 2023 8:32 am

From The Anti-Christ, by Friedrich Nietzsche:

One must be superior to mankind in force, in loftiness of soul - in contempt...

What is good? - All that heightens the feeling of power, the will to power, power itself in man.
What is bad? - All that proceeds from weakness.

What is happiness? - The feeling that power increases - that a resistance is overcome.

Not contentment, but more power; not peace at all, but war; not virtue, but proficiency...
The weak and ill-constituted shall perish: first principle of our philanthropy. And one shall help them to do so.
What is more harmful than any vice? - Active sympathy for the ill-constituted and weak...
