NIETZSCHE :: the Adolescent associated with the implications of this utterly NOBLE character are inherent in the "Project" he spent his life attempting to construct. NIETZSCHE believed in stopping WAR from continuing to be 'civilizations' "go to" economic foundation; the solution to the ailment of the HUMAN CONDITION is the profound perversity of mankind's basis on a Slave & Master trickle down society (also to stop); then, pointing out the psychological dysfunctionality of the Judeo-Christian tradition and contrasting it with some undeveloped reacquaintance with the wisdom of Greek intellectuals of antiquity...well, let's say NIETZSCHE was biting off more than any one man could ever chew. NIETZSCHE's relationship to a status quo :: from the Latin " in statu quo ante bellum erat" .."The way it was before the war" ; the confirmation that life is FLUX, and the status quo is what is settled for but not the way things are :: this is a very POWERFUL call to truth. One truth being a state of WAR is not the answer but a chosen path of those in power. Here NIETZSCHE became the THESEUS hero defying the old social structure in it's business as usual submission to the quick bargain to wealth and power :: WAR.
This issue can quite easily be seen to be the greatest single discussion about mankind; and NIETZSCHE had the temerity to not just bring up this issue, but to fight to literally solve the problem. How Adolescent and in the NOBLEST of fashions.
NIETZSCHE saw that this task will take a number of tools in helping the Human Condition to accomplish this higher direction in social evolution.
1.) deconstruction in thought processing
2.) demystifying - then REMYSTIFYING
3.) an annoyance with societies blind acceptance to a business as usual simplicity over a newly constructing creative approach to meeting the future as it presents itself.
The marvel of the MODERN ERA was in large part; precisely this marvel of Industrial Aggressions which actually motivated the solidarity in welding the Human Condition to a unifying purpose and rising the consciousness of mankind above it's Identity of bloodlust and WAR to see a greater horizon and lyric potential for the journey of the race; but without WAR? Once taking off the onus of WAR; then rechanneling the excellerating aggressions of the Industrial Era into :: invention; urbanization; the creation and expansion of the Entertainment Arts in society; and the incredible creation of recreational sports into professional industry which into the 20th century became one of the greatest incorporated business structures of the MODERN WORLD. Yet even with this advancement of society in the 19th century and the dawning MODERN AGE...into the 20th century, it became necessary to have not one but two World Wars :: we all watched (well, our county watched) as a 20th century manifestation of the "Dark Will to Power" from the Napoleonic days came alive in the gangster/thuggery of organized crime in America and Nazism in Germany. Then America or the War-powers around Harry S. Truman (who rose to the presidency through the support of Kansas City organized crime) saw fit to unleash the most devastating Atomic Bombs on Japan, not once but twice. In actual fact, the cities of Japan were under attack with incinerating bombs ( the prototypes to the napalm bombs used in Viet Nam twenty years later) which actually killed more Japanese than the subsequent two Atomic Bombs; each of which killed over 100,000 people each.
The stark realities of these events are realities Nietzsche ; one of the foremost historians of his day ; saw coming in the dawning new age. This in part bolstered NIETZSCHE's alternative passion for a MODERN society which could and must increasingly advance its aggressions into AESTHETICS and creativity, higher virtues and morals, than someday achieveing a society that will become in effect NIETZSCHE's vision of a culture of all artists, saints, and philosophers. A nobler race that could at some level in the not too unforseeable future weed away the lower inclinations to WAR mongering, to criminal intent in society, and all forms of inhumanity of humans to other humans on earth. This is NIETZSCHE's Vision :: not the ignorant bateing of all those who cling to and minimize this Vision to the impish "god is dead" line that small minds have always gratuitously criticized NIETZSCHE for.
The dead weight of all those who fall down and submit to the powers of WAR mongering in society are at least theoretically just as guilty as WAR mongering like Napoleon and Hitler and others who use WAR to empower a MODERN society to their Will and profit. Great Patriots have stated that in the MODERN AGE of unimaginable profits and power for the smallest percentage of autocrats and pure capitalists : the descent to not stop the evil of such tyranny by those who merely submit : this is as crippling to a youthful vibrant society of virtue and creative expression as actually perpetuating the evil themselves. This is what the Fathers of American Democracy like Benjamin Franklin, THOMAS PAINE, and Thomas Jefferson were stating as the basis of what this new country is founded upon. It is in this spirit that NIETZSCHE both extolled the virtues of a society of Artists, Saints, and Philosophers; and also pressed himself to madness in seeking to clean out the Agean Stables of societal corruptions and backslidding and submissions to the fallen values that merely pull society back down. Or, enable it to lye dormaint in the haze of it's comfort zones. The falsehood of shock and awe have blinded the cultural growth of the 20th Century to the actual experiences of aesthetical growth and values in life which true appreciation of AESTHETICS engenders. The latent and betrayed additions to ciggarettes & alchohol & drugs & sex additions ..etc..have become accepted betrayals to actual AESTHETICS in the <commodification>of the TWENTIETH CENTURIES AESTHETICS.
