Okay! From now on i follow the Nietzsche memes! Ah no, i have no
choice... memes do what they want with me .. ;)
Actually i really like Nietzsche but everyone seems to get
completely different memes out of his writing.

Well, i dont know. I think you're best of when what's truly yours is
what is culturally accepted too. Everyone imitates, but for some
people this required imitation is what they would naturally like to do

Being a german (even the word sounds bad to me) i'm a bit biased
because of what hitler did with the übermensch idea.
Furtheron i think Zarathustra was the worst of nietzsches writing.
"Fröhliche Wissenschaft" (happy science?) is my favourite.
The evil is needed or there will be no passion in the world! Maybe
this is what Hitler gave a good conscience. Hmhmhmhmhmh. But
what about bin laden, did he know nietzsche? Who knows.
