The Antichrist § 7


Christianity is called the religion of pity… Pity runs counter to the whole law of evolution, which is the law of selection. It preserves whatever is ripe for destruction; it fights on the side of those disinherited and condemned by life, and it gives a depressive and questionable character to life itself by keeping alive an abundance of failures of every type.

  1. Problem is, if the weak can conspire to defeat the strong; if life’s failures can work together to exterminate the successful, then who’s really strong, and who’s really a failure? Human notions of virtue don’t necessarily correspond to Nature’s, and she always has the last word.

    1. A terminally ill, AIDS-ridden child could kill off all those deemed by Nietzsche as successful if technology was in such a state that such a child had the liquid metal terminator at its disposal. So, perhaps it is those with the better technology that is the fittest.

      1. True, with the right technology even the Superman can be killed by anyone who can fire a kryptonite bullet; or perhaps by a kike firing bullets made of pity, another imaginary substance, like love or the soul. In that case, it turns out Superman’s not so super after all!
        “Technology” and allied words such as “technique” derive from the Greek word τέχνη, meaning cunning, device, artifice, craft, or skill; or as Ellul says, technology is the ensemble of means whereby man obtains what he wants from the world. In that sense, religion is technology; the lie is technology, a means of control in interpersonal relations, a means of making war. This answers the question: Why are people so addicted to lying that they’ve built a culture around it? Because evolution has so formed our minds. We affirm something as true not because it corresponds to any reality, but because we want or need it to be true. This leaves mental processes vulnerable to anyone with the art, craft, or skill to manipulate them.

    2. Exactly what happened in both the US Civil War, and WW2, wasn’t it? Exactly what is happening to Whites worldwide now.

  2. Funny that in his last weeks the only words that Nietzsche could whisper were verses from the Bible that he had learned when he was a kid.
    And he was a massive admirer of Jews.

    1. Do you have a source for that claim in your first paragraph?
      As to your second paragraph, this is what he wrote in The Anti-Christ:

      § 24
      This is precisely why the Jews are the most disastrous people in world history: they have left such a falsified humanity in their wake that even today Christians can think of themselves as anti-Jewish without understanding that they are the ultimate conclusion of Judaism.
