This fucker has been coming up a lot lately for some reason... so I thought it would do me good to viciously rant against him and everything he stands for :P
Alright since the fucking name 'Nieztsche' is such a fucking hassle to type over and over again this German wart on the face of creation will henceforth be known only as 'Freddy'.
"In Daybreak Nietzsche begins his "Campaign against Morality". He calls himself an "immoralist" and harshly criticizes the prominent moral schemes of his day: Christianity, Kantianism, and utilitarianism. In Ecce Homo Nietzsche called the establishment of moral systems based on a dichotomy of good and evil a "calamitous error", and wished to initiate a re-evaluation of the values of the Judeo-Christian world. He indicates his desire to bring about a new, more naturalistic source of value in the vital impulses of life itself.
In both these works, Nietzsche's genealogical account of the development of master-slave morality occupies a central place. Nietzsche presents master-morality as the original system of morality—perhaps best associated with Homeric Greece. Here, value arises as a contrast between good and bad, or between 'life-affirming' and 'life-denying': wealth, strength, health, and power, the sort of traits found in a Homeric hero, count as good; while bad is associated with the poor, weak, sick, and pathetic, the sort of traits conventionally associated with slaves in ancient times."
Okay, so basically all that says that this calamitous fuckwit said that any moral system based on a juxtaposition of 'good and bad' is flawed and then... you guessed it... goes on to outline a preferred moral system based on his own arbitrary definition of good and bad. Oh fuck me.
Do you want to live in this Freddy world?? Remarkably some people actually DO. They are usually the ones built like Greek Gods with egos the size of continents who think their bulging muscles, strength and social acumen classify them as the elite of existence somehow. Either them, or maybe even worse; the weak, broken down people who are actually weak as all fuck but like to think they're Greek adonises. Wow, that's like a double whammy of suck right there.
Meanwhile, here was I, living in my weak 'needs to be exterminated according to Freddy' body believing that loving others and not trying to break the necks of those I disagree with might be a productive strategy. What do I know? I'm the enfeebled one who needs to be Freddy exterminated :P
It's somewhat ironic that he wants a 'naturalistic' source of value when, if we accept naturalism or its evil twin materialism (the view that there is only nature and natural forces and nothing transcendent operates anywhere ever), we don't even have a viable reason for believing our brains to be accurate in perceiving the world around us let alone defining what value we should be attaching to our lives!! (As Alvin Plantinga has so adequately demonstrated)
So basically all that we are left with is that Freddy thinks morals should be based on individual 'perspective'. Well if that is so, I have an individual perspective, and that is that Freddy's perspective is A HEAPING LOAD OF TURD. And since according to his own definition noone's 'perspective' is of any more worth than any other, looks like Freddy is fucking shit out of luck.
And how did Freddy's story end? He went mad, started pissing and shitting in the streets, yelling out gibberish in his underwear in the town square until the syphillis that he got while out being a 'perspectivist' finally brought him down. Hmm... somehow apt really.
