Why do people overemphasize the side of Nietzsche that isn't against master morality?
It seems the first lesson people take is "hur hur being strong is the only good, so i should go lift weights and take fighting classes".
It's just such a disappointment that the most boring parts of Nietzsche are so emphasized.
It's been appropriated as self help by people who have The Art of Manliness as their homepage.
It's like people who call themselves nihilists because 'hurr durr le universe is really big, lyfe has no meaning' while still caring about wearing nice clothes and getting laid.
Except that's not true at all.
Nietzsche doesn't mind you choosing certain morals, he just wants you to choose them from strength, not from weakness.

You think so? I don't associate with that sort of person so I don't know what they think.
Sorry, I misread "many" as meaning "many people of equal importance", like as if that's a valid interpretation.
Nietzsche does provide help, but it cheapens it to call it "self-help"
So nevermind, I see what you were saying.
Leftists quite like Nietzsche for some reason
I really wanted to like Nietzsche but I feel that he is not enough of a nihilist! He prescribes aught of oughts. I sometimes feel David Hume is a truer nihilist because he admits that his oughts are not derived from what is; are arbitrary.
