Nietzsche Multi-Heads 1 - by Rev. Shakes
Designed by revshakes
890 (Spring-Fall 1887) The dwarfing of man must for a long time count as the only goal; because a broad foundation has first to be created so that a stronger species of man can stand upon it. (To what extent every strengthened species of man hitherto has stood upon a level of the lower ) 891 (Spring-Fall 1887) Absurd and contemptible form of idealism that would not have mediocrity mediocre and, instead of feeling a sense of triumph at a state of exceptionalness, becomes indignant over cowardice, falsity, pettiness, and wretchedness. One should not desire these things to be different! and should make the gulf wider!- One should compel the higher kind of man to sever himself from the others through the sacrifices he has to make to his state of being. Chief viewpoint: establish distances, but create no antitheses. Dissolve the intermediate forms and reduce their influence: chief means of preserving distances. 892 (Jan.-Fall 1888) How should one wish to spoil mediocrity for the mediocre! As one will see, I do the opposite: every step away from it-so I teach-leads to immorality.'· 'Prom this point on the "text" is "uncertain," according to 1911, p. 512. 10 Cf. The Antichrist, section 57 (Portable Nietzsche. p. 643 D). 476 THE WILL TO POWER 893 (Spring-Fall 1887) Hatred for mediocrity is unworthy of a philosopher: it is almost a question mark against his "right to philosophy." Precisely because he is an exception he has to take the rule under his protection, he has to keep the mediocre in good heart. 894 (Spring-Fall 1887) What 1 fight against: that an exceptional type should make war on the rule-instead of grasping that the continued existence of the rule is the precondition for the value of the exception. For example, the ladies who, instead of feeling their abnonnal thirst for scholarship as a distinction, want to disrupt the status of woman in general. 895 (Spring-Fall 1887) The increase of force despite the temporary decline of the individual: to establish a new level: a method of assembling forces for the preservation of small achievements, in opposition to uneconomic waste; destructive nature temporarily subdued as an instrument for this future economy; preservation of the weak, because a tremendous number of petty tasks have to be performed; preservation of an attitude of mind that makes existence stilI possible for the weak and suffering; to implant solidarity as an instinct against the instinct of fear and servility; struggle against accident, also against the accident of "great men." 896 (Spring-Fall 1887) Struggle against men justified on economic grounds. They are dangerous, accidents, exceptions, tempests, strong enough to call in question things slowly built and established. Explosives BOOK FOUR: Discipline and Breeding 477 should not merely be detonated harmlessly; where possible detonation should be prevented: fundamental instinct of all civilized society. 897 (Jan.-Fall 1888) Whover reflects upon the way in which the type man can be raised to his greatest spend~r and power will grasp first of all that he must place himself outside morality; for morality has been essentially directed to the opposite end: to obstruct or destroy that splendid evolution wherever it has been going on. For such an evolution does indeed consume so great a quantity of men in its service that a reverse movement is only too natural: the weaker, more delicate, intermediate existences need to take sides against that gloriousness of life and strength; and to that end they have to acquire a new valuation of themselves by virtue of which they can condemn life in this highest plenitude, and where possible destroy it. A tendency hostile to life is therefore characteristic of morality, in so far as it wants to overpower the types of life. 898 (Spring-Fall 1887) The strong of the future.- That which partly necessity, partly chance has achieved here and there, the conditions for the production of a stronger type, we are now able to comprehend and consciously will: we are able to create the conditions under which such an elevation is possible. Until now, "education" has had in view the needs of society: not the possible needs of the future, but the needs of the society of the day. One desired to produce "tools" for it. Assuming the wealth of force were greater, one could imagine forces being subtracted, not to serve the needs of society but some future need. Such a task would have to be posed the more it was grasped to what extent the contemporary form of society was being so powerfully transformed that at some future time it would be unable to exist for its own sake alone, but oniy as a tool in the hands of a stronger race. The increasing dwarfing of man is precisely the driving force that brings to mind the breeding of a stronger race--a race that would be excessive precisely where the dwarfed species was weak 478 THE WILL TO POWER and growing weaker (in will, responsibility, self-assurance, ability to posit goals for oneself). The means would be those history teaches: isolation through interests in preservation that are the reverse of those which are average today; habituation to reverse evaluations; distance as a pathos; a free conscience in those things that today are most undervalued and prohibited. The homogenizing of European man is the great process that cannot be obstructed: one should even hasten it. The necessity to create a gulf, distance, order of rank, is given eo ipso--not the necessity to retard this process. As soon as it is established, this homogenizing species requires a justification: it lies in serving a higher sovereign species that stands upon the former and can raise itself to its task only by doing this. Not merely a master race whose sole task is to rule, but a race with its own sphere of life, with an excess of strength for beauty, bravery, culture, manners to the highest peak of the spirit; an affirming race that may grant itself every great luxurystrong enough to have no need of the tyranny of the virtueimperative, rich enough to have no need of thrift and pedantry, beyond good and evil; a hothouse for strange and choice plants. 899 (1885) Our psychologists, whose glance lingers involuntarily on symptoms of decadence alone, again and again induce us to mistrust the spirit. One always sees only those effects of the spirit that make men weak, delicate, and morbid; but now there are coming new barbarians { cynics experimenters conquerors } union of spiritual superiority with well-being and an excess of strength." 900 (1885) I point to something new: certainly for such a democratic type there exists the danger of the barbarian, but one has looked 11 For some discussion see Kaufmann's Nietzsche, Chapter 12. beginning of section IV. BOOK FOUR:" Discipline and Breeding 479 for it only in the depths. There exists also another type of barbarian, who comes from the heights: a species of conquering and ruling natures in search of material to mold. Prometheus was this kind of barbarian. 901 (Spring-Fall 1887)12 Main consideration: not to see the task of the higher species in leading the lower (as, e.g., Comte does), but the lower as a base upon which higher species performs its own tasks-upon which alone it can stand. The conditions under which a strong and noble species maintains itself (regarding spiritual discipline) are the reverse of those which govern the "industrial masses," the shopkeepers a la Spencer. That which is available only to the strongest and most fruitful natures and makes their existence possible-leisure, adventure, disbelief, even dissipation-would, if it were available to mediocre natures, necessarily destroy them-and actually does. This is where industriousness, rule, moderation, firm "conviction" have their place-in short, the "herd virtues": under them this intermediate type of man grows perfect. 902 (Manuscript source uncertain) On the sovereign types.- The "shepherd" as opposed to the "master" (-the former a means of preserving the herd; the latter the end for which the herd exists). 903 (Spring-Fall 1887) Temporary preponderance of the social value-feelings comprehensible and useful: it is a question of creating a foundation upon which a stronger species will ultimately be possible.Standard of strength: to be able to live under the reverse evaluations and to will them again eternally. State and society as foundation: world-economic point of view, education as breeding}" 904 (Nov. 1887-March 1888) Insight that "free spirits" lack: the identical discipline that makes a strong nature even stronger and capable of great undertakings, shatters and withers the mediocre:·-doubt-la largeur de coeur14--experiment-independence. 905 (1885-1886) The hammer. How would men have to be constituted whose evaluations would be the reverse?- Men who possess all the qualities of the modern soul, but are strong enough to transform them into pure health?- The means they employ in their task.

Good product and even greater customer service.

The T shirt that I had bought was a little too large but Redbubble staff were prompt in helping me with the issue and ordered a replacement for me in record time. Customer service is really top notch. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good T and even greater service. The quality of the T shirt itself wasn't as good as I expected. The fabric felt thin between my fingers but I guess that's what differentiates the classic T shirt from the premium quality T shirt. May put in extra coin next time to get the better quality one. Other than that, great novelty product.


Great Service and Products!

I purchased a T-shirt for my boss. It arrived quickly and in very cool packaging. Loved the little clothespin. I had gotten the wrong size and he needed to return it. We were both amazed and how quickly and easy the whole process was. Not to mention that he was asked to simply pass on his too-small T-shirt and was sent a replacement for free. I turned on another office mate to your website and she has started her Christmas shopping already. I will continue to spread the word on all of your great items!!!!
