Further, the post was factually wrong. Both Nietzsche and Beethoven expressed different things as they moved through the arc of their lives. What does one do, then? STUDY IT ALL and look for consistent patterns. Nietzsche's comments make clear what he thinks of "nationalism" of the day, which was actually nation-statism based in the revolts following the French Revolution; he affirms not just racial, but caste, nationalism in other areas of his writing. Same way we probably should note to whom the 3rd symphony was originally dedicated and what happened after that.
The main crime here is passive-aggression. I consider it the biggest problem in our civilization and will delete anything that doesn't have the balls to step up and make its point in a direct way. If you have a problem with that, go away (or wait for me to be busy).
None of this is true. I did not compare Beethoven to Nietzsche ideologically in any manner. My point was, here we have two individuals, who fly in the face of ANUS policy. If you misinterpret the Antichrist, you may assume he praises the Laws of Manu, but although he saw this as a superior form to most ancient hierarchies, the Europe of the future (in his eyes) was one country with one race. Another example in the Antichrist, is when he says early-on, 'First principle of our charity, the weak shall perish and one shall help them' and then later in the tail end, he praises a type of Renaissance man, who helps all those below him rise up. Why the paradox? Nietzsche wanted a society which bred a higher type, but realized that all organisms on the planet can contribute to a higher society, by ingratiation.
Passive-aggressive? What are you on about? I posted a thread as a polemic against this site, confirming that indeed Nietzsche stands starkly opposed to the majority of fluff on here. You delete the post, without warning, just because it offends your sensibilities (the fascist far right sensibilities, which lead to censorship, and covering up facts). Do you know what passive-aggressive is..?
A panegyric of mental (so-called) illness has nothing to do with political orientation, unlike your whitewashing of a certain side of the political spectrum, it has to do with the Romantic ideal. Those with mental illness are overman, they interpret the world through other methods (non-common sensical), and through their pain and other forms of consciousness, transcend the limits of the average and stable ie: Nietzsche's philosophy in a nutshell.
Prozak applauded a blind man being punched on a bus, and goes on and on about exterminating the physically and mentally frail, which in his society would include Beethoven and Nietzsche (and every other artist for that matter). Please, just remove those two from your heroes. They would feel disgraced to know they were being deified on this website.
