July 25th, 2012The Spawn of Nietzscheby Kevin O'Brien | http://www.thewordinc.org
OK, I can understand young girls getting a secret thrill out of Ayn Rand - Rand's novels are Hallmark Movies on steroids, where the shirtless heroes are selfish geniuses who take what they want when they want it and ride off into the sunset on some powerful and muscular horse, snorting along the way (the horse, not the hero). And girls have always liked Bad Boys.
But why would young guys get into this stuff?
Well, young guys don't typically get into Ayn Rand, but it seems lots of American Kids are Hitler Youth - devotees of little Freddie Nietzsche. The syphillitic Nietzsche and his charming witticisms can be seen here ...
Interesting how -in the description fo this video- they add "syphilitic" when Nietzsche's name appears. Just like saying: look where that thought will lead you.. so don't pay attention to it. Big balls are needed to go deep in Nietzsche's rational work, which goes beyond the control of the? ego, that ego that has been represented by GOD or moral consciousness. ¿And what is left beyond these two concepts we do not know and can only imagine? The unique answer relies in the depths of each of us.
- So writes someone who calls himself "McBrave15". I believe the "15" part.
And I wonder if, between video games, this young man returns to the thrilling intellectual challenge of discovering what is left beyond those two concepts that we do not know and can only imagine. ¿What could it be I wonder? I am certain at least that the unique answer does indeed rely in the depths of each of us. All those movies about the Force and all that tell me so.
