Today’s “Marxists” might as well be Hegelians
Far from endorsing the Hegelian-Bismarckian understanding of the modern state as the institutional arrangement toward which all of the humanity’s spiritual energies should aim, Nietzsche asserted that the state was only a means to (and servant of) a higher spiritual goal: namely, the production of genuine culture and the geniuses who shape it.
Not like most “Nietzscheans” I’ve read are much different- “state-owned” as that Korean autist puts it.
Look how this lines up with his creative period
This is the only book I see on this specific subject
Neech, ketman, and the hidden state would be an even better study.
Anyway, I’d like a Marxist to explain to me how they aren’t Hegelians in this way. It’s really funny. I don’t think they can. The state’s lickspittle. So shill, very wow. Marx is just frowning upon you from the clouds.
I’m just continuing to go through that secondary text on the Untimely Meditations – this matches well with what I usually call the “social contract”
modern citizenship (and not philosophy or art) is the highest form of cultural activity
It’s not philosophy, it’s not art, get out of here, “citizen”.
Too many coincidences, I love history
it promoted bureaucratic politics and shallow citizenship at the expense of high spiritual characteristics because anything higher than the state threatened to challenge the Iron Chancellor’s vision of a centrally administered German polity.
Drumpf!! World of appearances moron, is that you? There’s no hope, they’re children.
Looking for an old post, I see that I ended one with this statement, just having a normal one that day
I call on Generals of the Military to address this.
I’ve put so much passion into the internet, and all for revenge as a response, mostly.
Ah here it is, one of my favorite quotes from Stan Rosen
Marx and Nietzsche are the brains of the operation, and neither of their disciples tend to break away from the state, and thus do not have a revolutionary spirit.
Anyway, this Untimely Meditations 2ndary is great- pretty simple, easy to understand way to describe it
The first two essays on David Strauss and scientific history constitute, in a broad sense, the destructive half of the book. Here Nietzsche presents causes for the decline of modern culture… The last two essays on Schopenhauer and Wagner constitute, broadly speaking, the book’s constructive half
David Strauss, the exemplification of the modern intellectual fool, one might think of Zizek or even Moldbug honestly (I’m sorry), then a genealogy essay. Afterward two figures to learn from as an alternative. We can use this form that Nietzsche gives us here and input our own content to better speak to modern times. I (unconsciously) have done something like that, using neech in place of Schopenhauer. Like I’ve said, these brainiacs give us the form, we just need to know what to do with it.
I mean, what do you want me to call these people, this seems pretty accurate
The primary subject of David Strauss the Confessor and the Writer is “the cultivated philistines.”
When you’re off the reservation, most things seem like “grift wars”.
Caution, there are signs of LEO Strauss in this 2ndary book
In 1976, however, Catherine Zuckert broached the question of the unity of the Untimely Meditations in an article that focused on the second and third essays. Zuckert observed that “Nietzsche’s philosophy begins in his Untimely Considerations”
If he’s going back to the 70s he must know that a book like his hasn’t been written yet. He calls the essays in Untimely Meditations a “tetralogy”. So if you want to understand historiography, at least from the mustachioed madman’s perspective, then…
“Are you trying to imply that Leo Strauss is a cultivated philistine too?” No, just because he’s a “noble Jew” doesn’t mean that he’s not a Jew, and you can make of that what you want.

There are “good merchants” among them- doesn’t mean they’re not merchants.
What about that Suez ship you’re all wasting your time about because you’re children? I think you’re in kindergarten on some level and will probably go to the grave that way as well.
Back to one of the true geniuses of the last few centuries though- scholars tend to treat everything between Birth of Tragedy and Zarathustra as a blank. Then the pomo twats love the 87-88 works. 1873 to about 1883 are pretty much non-existent. There might be non-coincidental “reasons” for that.
Once again, if you, like me, feel suffocated by the enforced historiography then this is something that will concern you
Among the many valuable remarks found in Nietzsche’s response to Knortz, one stands out for the emphasis it placed on his most neglected book. “The Untimely Meditations,” Nietzsche wrote, “which is the work of youth in a certain sense, deserves the greatest attention for my development.”
This is an 1888 letter.
Oh yeah this 2ndary reminds me of something you might remember me mentioning a whiile ago, that older Nietzsche said he was talking about himself in the second half of the Untimely Meditations. And it’s even more amusing, and enlightening, to read it in that light. Remember, the book he wrote right after that was what Wagner could never forgive, Human, All Too Human, I bet some of you see me that way, well, I’ve never claimed to be otherwise (give me milkers or else). Everyone thinks of Einstein- Nietzsche is more than Einstein, that’s why I talk about him constantly, for years. I’m a spiritual Anglo in a sense, because I believe people should have liberty, and this is the thinker that I believe facilitates that better than any other. On the other hand, he thought on the opposite side of the spectrum (lol) as well – see here for instance- one of my favorite aphorisms of his actually, which I suggest you read at least 10 times to understand.
This 2ndary is from 2018, people haven’t written about this book.
