How do I begin to talk about this book? Well, so far, it’s the only book in ArtsOne that has made me physically angry. Just reading this text made my blood boil. I remember one time that I asked Siri on my cousin’s iPhone what the meaning of life was, and her response was, “Nothing Nietzsche couldn’t teach you.” Boy… if this text has anything to do with the meaning of life, then I feel like we’re all screwed.
To start off, I completely condemn and cannot begin to appreciate the total and utter ludicracy regarding his opinion on Jewish people. Truthfully, any individual who presents such blatantly biased, horrific views of others offers nothing to me. Stating that the Jewish people created a complete reversal of morals is utterly ridiculous. How on Earth can anyone associate the noble, wealthy, selfish aristocrats with any good qualities? If that is true morality, then life is a sham.
I swear, I almost ripped a page out of the book when he started saying that Christianity was formed from hatred… Normally, I don’t care what people have to say about my religion, to each their own, right? But this made me furious. Just… just what? It’s the same as the Jewish thing, and like when people criticize the Muslim religion without comprehending it. I seriously couldn’t wrap my head around this… How on Earth can not possessing “noble” warlike traits be grounds for hatred? Just because an individual doesn’t necessarily demonstrate these traits doesn’t mean that he is jealous of them or needs reason to ruin others….

Honestly, this book just pissed me off. Not just about religion, but the majority of assumptions he makes about humanity. The only thing I agreed with was his interpretation of science as being its own sort of religion. In trying so hard to be completely based on pure, unadulterated facts, it actually serves as an astetic ideal. In truth, everything that we believe in is nothing more than an interpretation. Nothing can ever be proved as the utter truth.
I’m just done with this book, sorry if this was a little angry and agressive, but it honestly just frusterated me. Honestly, the world would be better off without Nietzsche… No seriously, he was one of Hitler’s inspirations.
