Nietzsche: Beyond Good and Evi
Master morality and Slave Morality Master morality is so named because it was created by the ruling class, the distinguished, the aristocrats, and it essentially considers strength, power, and bravery to be "good." The "good" was created out of an affirmation and pride of their own power and honor. Additional attributes of those bearing the stamp of master morality are having a hard heart, being egotistical, intolerant and of distinguished origin, as well as emerging from a life of solitude. Those deemed as “bad” by the “great men” are those who belong to the lower class, who are characteristically common and mediocre in the eyes of the ruling class. Conversely, slave morality, represents the masses and herds, in other words the tainted and mediocre stratosphere of Nietzschean society. It is so called because it is the lower class that created this morality system. This system considered kindness, pity, compassion, and peace as the "good." Instead of being a product of affirmation, however, the distinction between "good" and "evil" is made out of a sense of revenge against the strength of the upper class. Naturally, those deemed as "evil" are those people who belong to the upper class, who are considered characteri
Nietzsche, believed that Christianity, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, democracy and the subsequent equal coexistence in power and strength of humans was leading to society"tms decay and the rampant unnatural acceptance of slave morality. In my opinion, women were rarely born into the ruling class to assume leadership roles in the late 19th century. What Nietzsche was predicting with his philosophy of master morality is an ideal that has yet to be attained. He asserted that humanity must rise "beyond good and evil" and regain respect for nobility and power if they were to excel. " Men must dominate; they make changes, they do not try to preserve, not even themselves. Women:To Nietzsche, woman were naturally second class to men, and they had an instinct for a secondary role. Furthermore, master morality condemns Hilter"tms pseudo-intellectuality, and anti-Semitic belief system. The themes on women, religion, the modern age, intellectual compromise, master morality vs. HitlerBeyond Good and Evil is an extremely powerful text which due to its many hidden and convoluted messages would have effected, reinforced and contributed to Hitler"tms fascist ideology, despite a lack of intention to do so on Nietzsche"tms part. Modern AgeNietzsche opposed the modern age, for he saw it as sad, fostering a weak and mediocre society (slave morality) in which the ideas of old and the distinguished were unrecognized. ), and was responsible to no one but himself, was in Hitler"tms eyes a self portrayal. Nietzsche was not anti-Semitic towards the Jews, instead he denigrated Judaism, the forefather of Christianity, because it was naturally just as mediocre as the Christian faith. Eventually, man would regain his natural place. Whether Nietzsche was being misogynistic is debatable considering the time period he lived in. A true leader and intellectual such as he would not denigrate himself by associating or discussing with those of inferior views or rank because they are perfect.
