NEETzsche is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. His whole thing was excelling past manhood. Ascending. He would have more than likely seen NEETs as a waste of human potential.

It completely subverts Zarathustra's message fyi, and Nietzsche openly acknowledges this. I recommend reading the Gathas instead, which are the unaltered words of Zarathustra dating to 800-1100 BCE, and I think Mary Boyce's translation is one of the best. This quote from Nietzche always pisses me off, though it does make certain correct claims:

"For what constitutes the tremendous historical uniqueness of that Persian is just the opposite of this. Zarathustra was the first to consider the fight of good and evil the very wheel in the machinery of things: the transposition of morality into the metaphysical realm, as a force, cause, and end in itself, is his work. [...] Zarathustra created this most calamitous error, morality; consequently, he must also be the first to recognize it. [...] His doctrine, and his alone, posits truthfulness as the highest virtue; this means the opposite of the cowardice of the "idealist” who flees from reality [...]—Am I understood?—The self-overcoming of morality, out of truthfulness; the self-overcoming of the moralist, into his opposite—into me—that is what the name of Zarathustra means in my mouth."

Yes, it does. The point is, Nietzsche rejects the existence of an objective morality, and he then encourages people to create their own values without regard to traditional morality. However, by rejecting objective morality, one is led to the position that "everything is permissible", so thus, one is free to construct his or her values to be aligned with Marquis de Sade's sadism, which is destructive.

Nietzsche's philosophy is a joke and rejecting objective morality should be resisted more. I don't know why people don't value meta-ethics anymore, and they just jump right into normative ethics. Meta-ethics and normative ethics work together.

>>13163007
>However, by rejecting objective morality, one is led to the position that "everything is permissible", so thus, one is free to construct his or her values to be aligned with Marquis de Sade's sadism, which is destructive.

This is only one stage of the process and isn't the end goal for Nietzsche. In The Shadow, Zarathustra's shadow says that it spoke to itself, "nothing is true, all is permitted," but then Zarathustra says at the end of the passage, "In the evening, however, there will be dancing in my cave." Zarathustra tells the shadow that it's had a bad day, and tells it to go up to his cave to have a better evening.

The whole point of the destruction of traditional morality for Nietzsche is so that a foundation can be prepared for a new morality. He is not the first to initiate something like this: the early Christians had occupied an antinomian position as well, which led to the burning of libraries and the destruction of Greek (later referred to as "pagan") morality.

>Nietzsche's philosophy is a joke and rejecting objective morality should be resisted more.

Regardless of what you think of it, it has already influenced the whole world and changed its direction dramatically since he was alive. We are living in the first century of the next 2,000 years that will no longer be lived under the Christian God, but under Zarathustra's dancing god.

Most people from academia sound the same. I have another friend who majored in the humanities, and he sounds nearly identical to you. You American and European Whites are in a deep rut because you refuse to resist and oppose moral anti-realism. Why is it so difficult to just have some doubt or reasonable cause to believe in moral realism? Moreover, why do you insist that physicalism/naturalism are the way when there are so many issues with such ontological positions?

You are destroying both yourselves and the world, and it's time you get past your nihilistic bullshit or at the very least pull off an Ulrich Horstmann and get rid of this nightmare, faggot.

Your Death of God is the Death of Everything that is good with you, and you will realize this eventually.

>Why is it so difficult to just have some doubt or reasonable cause to believe in moral realism?

I don't think the position you're arguing is very related to Nietzsche or to me. From my experience, there are a number of people in academia who misuse Nietzsche for their own goals. His quote "there are no facts, only interpretations" quickly and wrongly becomes "all interpretations are invalid and shall not be asserted, besides this one" for these people. In reading him further it becomes immediately apparent that that was not his message. His message was instead closer to, "we each have our own way, and we shall fight to assert our own."

>Moreover, why do you insist that physicalism/naturalism are the way when there are so many issues with such ontological positions?

I'm also not too keen on the phrasing of this question either. I've seen Nietzsche referred to as a physicalist before, but I think it's a mistake. His perspectivism affirms the validity of all perspectives simultaneously. That doesn't mean that HIS interpretation holds all of them valid, only that they are all valid for the bodies that they stem from. Nietzsche does rest on an a priori judgment here (that all knowledge stems from the body) and iirc he even admits to this in a letter somewhere. Needless to say, we all have our own a priori judgment in a sense, and none of them are valid for everyone, because they're each our own.

>You are destroying both yourselves and the world, and it's time you get past your nihilistic bullshit or at the very least pull off an Ulrich Horstmann and get rid of this nightmare, faggot.

I don't know what you're talking about here.

>Your Death of God is the Death of Everything that is good with you, and you will realize this eventually. Every civilization needs some kind of mysticism, some kind of transcendence or immanence to give it strength. Your little game of disenchantment and becoming little Thomas Ligottis needs to come to an end.

You're being way too hasty. It took Christianity many centuries before it became the ideological powerhouse that it did, and it took a lot of destruction to get there, and it certainly didn't benefit everyone in the process. The death of God was also a natural death caused by Christianity itself; don't blame Nietzsche for vocalizing the undercurrents of the earth.

>"we each have our own way, and we shall fight to assert our own."
I am aware of this and how it ties into his perspectivism, but still, I think there may be justification for an absolute Way that is better to align one's perspective with. Thus. "we each should do our best to discern and follow the true Way". I respect Schopenhauer more than Nietzsche because the former argues the true Way as being more aligned with Vedanta, and Schopenhauer argued for a special metaphysical quality to compassion.
>Needless to say, we all have our own a priori judgment in a sense, and none of them are valid for everyone, because they're each our own.
And some ways are closer to the Truth and others less so.
>The death of God was also a natural death caused by Christianity itself; don't blame Nietzsche for vocalizing the undercurrents of the earth.
Moral anti-realism is the death of all mysticism since it relegates compassion to merely a perspective that is neither truer nor falser than others.

weakness exists, depravity doesn't, enlightenment could look depraved before certain eyes, you're too weak to stay attached to the possibilities of enlightenment

There is, with Nietzsche even: your way is absolute for you, because all of your knowledge stems from your body, which is you."We each should do our best to discern and follow the true Way" then means "We each should do our best to discern and follow our way," which was Nietzsche's message. And the acknowledgement that it is ours is necessary for us to better understand the other's (i.e., Nietzsche's understanding leads to an even greater understanding of God, in a sense).

no, but you should take the time to understand and sometimes refer back to previous statements, I can't see how you would do that with an audiobook except for constantly adjusting the speed and rewinding.

There is only one true way irrespective of our perspective towards it. Perhaps certain perspectives can reach it, but it is still ultimately within certain constraints.
