He Said That? 9/2/17

From Friedrich Neitzsche (1844-1900), German philosopher, Human, All Too Human (1878):

In the mountains of truth you will never climb in vain: either you will get up higher today or you will exercise your strength so as to be able to get up higher tomorrow.

  1. Nietzsche. And now I can ask a question I’ve been wanting to ask without having to barge in off topic: What did you think of the recent article on TBP, Pathological Altruism and White Guilt? I thought it made some good points (and a few wrong ones) but that the linked piece (by the same author) Our Insane Judeo-Christian Slave Morality did better at addressing the fundamental issues. The only thing in the latter I would dispute is the contention that the only uniquely human attribute is self-deception. Self-deception is a possible – not inevitable – consequence of the actual uniquely human attribute: Man is a being of volitional consciousness, as Ayn Rand put it.

    • I hadn’t read the TBP article, but when I get a chance I’ll at least scan it, and I’ll check out the other article as well, and report back.
