OP, I don't mean this in a disparaging way, but you're looking for /x/ or /tinfoil/.

There are many schools of thought, especially religious ones, that tell you distinctly what is right and what is wrong. Those are just opinions being projected as facts.

I believe that the Taoists got it right when they said that there is no such thing as right or wrong, that all good actions have negative consequences and all bad actions have positive consequences outside of their obvious positive and negative consequences, respectfully.

Like, would the world be a better place if Hitler had never existed? No. Putting a stop to things you consider 'evil' doesn't necessitate a less-evil world.

You'll eat all the Nietzsche on your plate and you'll like it, or you're not getting metaphysics for dessert.

Nietzsche was a bit of retard though. He made a point out of being wrong about anything. Then he hugged a horse went mad and died. If he lived what he preached he'd be a cool customer. But he was the antithesis of everything he idolized. A syphilitic retard, not the superman.

Horse meme, syphilis meme, "Nietzsche was a hypocrite" meme. Great post.

What bearing does a man's life has on the value of his ideas? Just because Marx was shitty managing his personal finances doesn't mean he wasn't a brilliant economical theorist.

He wasn't. Just look what his ideas did to the world.
A 'brilliant' idea on paper is not brilliant in practice, because in practice you face everything you didn't want to face, the shortcomings of humanity.

Well one person controlling the majority of the wealth is not only bad in practice for Marxism but theory. Most communism struggles are because nobody in theory can reach it. Any ruling class or governorment enforced communism is not because the entire origin is Hegelian. Meaning self consciousness requires community not state for self recognition and labor to succeed. Mao, Stalin, Castro all were enforcers of a state. A state cannot work as an idea because it isn't free. The community is what it apes the idea of a living polis or context

Nietzsche was somewhat a creative genius realizing truths in youth that galvanized
Him where they would drive most humans mad. Not only conducting his own psycho therapy but his own sociology.

Ben franklin also had syphlisis and he helped out quite a bit.

You have demonstrated that Leninism (Mao, Stalin, Castro) is a totally different thing from Marxism. Good for you, it is! What does that have to do with Nietzsche or good and evil or anything else in this thread?

in addition, they were both responders to hegel and predisposed with the metaphysics of value. As well as outlining things in world stages, and structuring there philosophy based on the same mechanics of logic in that.

Nietzhce even took the subsuming of tensions in greater and greater stages to self overcoming. While Marx took it a materialist place. Both were obsessed with the master and slave dynamic. And the concept of self recognition.
So on and so on.

That's my point. The Man with No Name up there >>208162 mentions Marx in a throwaway comment merely comparing the story of Nietzsche's life to his, and now all of a sudden we're talking about the practical effects of Marxist theory. This is the second thread on the front page that has been derailed from its true topic into discussing Marx merely by someone having mentioned his name. Maybe we need a Marx containment thread?

no that will only excerbate it. If your intentions are to get less marx threads popping up don't do it. I agree though people have tried to make pss incredibly political. And there basically using marx's status as a philosopher to achieve that.

My take on beyond good in evil, is that Nietzche basically outlined the parts of the creative process and the living independently process that affect or stop us from achieving the experience of the uber or the super. And it's technically the super ego. The voice that berates us with good and bad left and right, whose job it is to give rise to the function of values and soul to make meaning. According to nietzche the advent of morals imprisons man but also makes man and life interesting. With us finding reasons for our pain. This part of the concept of good and bad divides value in to category, and rationale into fixed position for what is good and bad and why you suffer.

This doesn't help you achieve the sublime. or understand the abyss as the pillow that it is. Because you are still being punished for it forever being caste into the negative in the good and evil phase.

>>208239 the entire thing being historically interesting and good fuel for social commentary. But asphyxiating or trapping for the human mind and soul.

Nietzche believes this is the human being refusing to diversify and expand it's mental diet.
