The Hammer Over Europe

Postby barbarianhorde » Fri May 26, 2017 7:31 pm

The Elder Nietzsche writes:

The hammer: to provoke a fearful decision, to confront Europe with the consequences: whether its will "wills" destruction.

Prevention of reduction to mediocrity. Rather destruction!



But how now, who is at work here, Kaiser Wilhelm 2?

Which name do you carry, o uncanniest of guests.

No-one?

Oh where have I heard that before.

An eye for an eye my friend.

Hence, my confusion! Either or, or does the latter follow from the former?

What, a triumph - oh no -
it turns out that mediocrity is unendurable for the Earth - she commits suicide under it. No Eternal Last Man after all-
simply destruction by mediocrity.

Suicide by meh.
It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.
~ Владимир Ильич Ульянов Ленин
