How you liking them apples, Jede-fucking-diah?! Thus spoke Barnaby Jones. I read this book back around or But what are you going to do? The Creator is also an annihilator—he must be cruel to break old values and create new ones. The Last Man is promised happiness—but who will lead and who will obey? Everyone is the same, and those who are different are mad.
The Last Man invented happiness. Man created God in order to look away from everything. God suffers too, and is thus imperfect like his creators. Man hated the body, and so created spirit. Man hated the Earth, and so created Heaven. Doubt was sin. Knowledge shunned. The Ego will reclaim man for the Earth. You say to me "Life is hard to bear.
Life is hard to bear; but do not act so tenderly! We are all of us fair beasts of burden, male and female asses. What do we have in common with the rosebud, which trembles because a drop of dew lies on it? True, we love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving. There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness. Warriors of the Mind: Those with the courage to fight for their beliefs have helped mankind far more than priests who meekly accept the ideas of others.
You invite a witness when you want to speak well of yourselves; and when you have seduced him to think well of you, then you think well of yourselves. Your bad love of yourselves turns your solitude into a prison. It is those farther away who must pay for your love of your neighbor; and even if five of you are together, there is always a sixth who must die.
Using other people as a prop to make them feel virtuous. Groups of virtuous people feeling very good can do great evil to strangers whom they should love too. Those who truly love are creators—and thus annihilators and givers and esteemers. Do not let virtues, good and evil, limit your fulfillment as a creator. Remain of the Earth and do not get lost in the heavens seeking away from yourself and the body.
Verily, I have often laughed at the weaklings who thought themselves good because they had no claws. Nietzsche says God is dead but he constantly refers to angels and magic creatures: is he creating a new religion of the Overman? Of becoming? At bottom, these simpletons want a single thing most of all: that nobody should hurt them. Thus they try to please and gratify everybody.
This, however, is cowardice, even if it be called virtue Nietzsche also frequently mentions his nausea, which chokes him like a snake. Small virtues: Do not be more concerned with morals than with being men. Perfect safety and happiness makes for small minds and petty pursuits.
The old gods laughed themselves to death when the Grimbeard God proclaimed one god only. Laughter and prankishness are very important to Nietzsche—it keeps him from acting out of revenge. The creator is not bound by the limits imposed by others. Their evil is so small: from small men with small virtues. The great enemy of man is the Spirit of Gravity, which from birth holds men down with Good and Evil and Virtues.
Man must soar his own way, making his own values. Good men never speak the truth. They give in—those who heed commands do not heed themselves. The warring of despots and of democracy. The despot will distort the past to make it lead to him. The rabble with drown the past in shallow waters: forget the past after a pair of generations. The Good and the Just must be pharisees. The good are always the beginning of the end. They want to crucify all creators; to the breakers of tablets, the Good sacrifice the future for themselves.
Zarathustra continues to be assailed by episodes of choking on the snake of nausea. All men, even the creator, must fight their nausea of the world. For man is the cruelest animal.
At tragedies, bullfights and crucifixions he has so far felt best on earth; and when he invented hell for himself, behold, that was his heaven on earth. Zarathustra, through love of nature, has accepted his love of eternity and the eternal re-occurrence.
Now in Part IV, as he has overcome his nausea of the eternal re-occurrence, he faces his final trial: pity. All great lovers are great despisers. All creators are hard, all great love is over and beyond pity. All great success has gone to the well-persecuted. All those who persecute well learn readily how to follow.
The small men ask only: How is man to be preserved best, longest and most agreeably? They are concerned solely with small virtues. The Overman wants not to preserve man, but to overcome man. Nietzsche constantly stresses the need for laughter and to laugh at one self: to dance on light feet. The archenemy is always the Spirit of Gravity. The greater the creator, the greater the evil. But wash off the stain after you have created. Birth is never pleasant. Whosoever would kill most thoroughly, laughs—not by wrath does one kill, but by laughter.
