Friedrich Nietzsche Turns 166

In honor of Nietzsche’s recent birthday, I offer up the following, from the Nietzsche Family Circus:

Liberalism is the transformation of mankind into cattle.

God is dead.

I never speak to the masses.

More here.

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.

For out of fear and need each religion is born, creeping into existence on the byways of reason.

Nothing is beautiful, only man: on this piece of naivete rests all aesthetics, it is the first truth of aesthetics. Let us immediately add its second: nothing is ugly but degenerate man - the domain of aesthetic judgment is therewith defined.

    Nietzsche is one of the most complex philosophers ever and bringing certain of his sayings in cartoons may look funny but can not do justice to his enormous contribution to human thought and our slow advance towards humanism.
