Friedrich Neitzsche

"The word "Christianity" is already a misunderstanding -
there has been only one Christian, and he died on the Cross."

The Virtuous

And others are proud of their modicum of righteousness,
and for the sake of it do violence to all things:
so that the Earth is drowned in their unrighteousness.

Ah! how ineptly cometh the word "virtue" out of their mouth!
And when they say: "I am just,"
it always soundeth like: "I am just-revenged!"

With their virtues they want to scratch out the eyes of their enemies;
and they elevate themselves only that they may lower others.

And again there are those who sit in their swamp,
and speak thus from among the bullrushes:
"Virtue - that is to sit quietly in the swamp.
We bite no one, and go out of the way of him who would bite;
and in all matters we have the opinion that is given us."

And again there are those who compassion attitudes,
and think that virtue is a sort of attitude.
Their knees continually adore,
and their hands are eulogies of virtue,
but their heart knoweth naught thereof.

And again there are those who regard it as virtue to say:

"Virtue is necessary";

but, after all is said and done, they believe only that policemen are necessary.

Thus Spake Zarathustra



a politician divides mankind into two classes: tools and  enemies

Men were considered free so they might be judged and punished.


A madman runs into a marketplace crying incessantly,

"I seek God!

I seek God!"

This action provokes laughter from the men in the marketplace,
who, do not believe in God.

In jest, they ask the madman whether God is
lost, hiding, or traveling on a voyage.

With piercing vision,
the madman confronts his tormentors with this announcement:

"God is dead.

God remains dead.

And we have killed God."

Belief means not wanting to know what is true.

People profess to be Christians and to have faith in God, but their confessions are habitual responses that lack depth and authenticity.

The most instructive experiences are those of everyday life.


cultural conformity

Whoever fights monsters should beware he does not become a monster.

Speaking generally, punishment hardens and numbs, it produces obstinacy, it sharpens the sense of alienation and strengthens the power of resistance.

All credibility, all good conscience, all evidence of truth come only from the senses.

The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher regard those who think and act alike than those who think and act differently.

Insanity in individuals is something rare - in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.

Self-deception is a particularly destructive characteristic of Western culture.

The Earth has a skin and that skin has diseases, one of those diseases is man.

Friedrich Nietzsche, German philospher



From 1880 until his collapse in January 1889, Friedrich Nietzsche led a wandering existence as a stateless individual, writing most of his major works during this period. The initial symptoms of Friedrich Nietzsche's breakdown, as evidenced in the letters he sent to his friends in the few days of lucidity remaining to him, bear many similarities to the ecstatic writings of religious mystics. Friedrich Nietzsche's letters describe his experience as a religious breakthrough and he rejoices, rather than laments.

A paper published in Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica reconsiders the insanity and death of philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, who is commonly thought to have died of neurosyphilis. The story of Nietzsche having caught syphilis from prostitutes was actually concocted after the Second World War by Wilhelm Lange-Eichbaum, an academic who was one of Nietzsche's most vociferous critics. Intellectuals at the time were keen to demolish the reputation of Nietzsche, whose idea of a "Superman" was used to underpin Nazism. In the late 19th century more than 90 per cent of those with advanced syphilis rapidly declined and died within five years of diagnosis. Nietzsche, in contrast, lived for another 11 years.

The authors of the new study published in published in Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica suggest that Nietzsche died of frontotemporal dementia – a type of dementia that specifically affects the frontal and temporal lobes. Other studies of medical records suggest that Friedrich Nietzsche almost certainly died of a slowly-developing brain tumor.

"Nietzsche was not anti-semitic or a nationalist, and hated the herd mentality," said Prof Stephen Houlgate, a Nietzsche scholar at Warwick University. "If this new research gets rid of another misconception about him, I'm delighted."

Friedrich Nietzsche was heavily influenced by Arthur Schopenhauer who theorized that humans living in the realm of objects are living in the realm of desire, and thus are eternally tormented by that desire (this parallels the dharma of Siddhartha Gautama). That drive was defined by Arthur Schopenhauer as the inherent drive within humans beings, and indeed all creatures, to stay alive and to reproduce.

Arthur Schopenhauer believed that through art the thinking individual could be jarred out of their limited, individual prespective to feel a sense of the universal (metaphysics) directly.

Nietzsche's hypothesis of the human condition to some extent left out the social engineering variable by assuming that the herd is willing to accepts its role - most of the time they are born into it and quite simply see no other way. There most definitely is a pecking order mentality in that people will agree with powerful personalities in the hope of currying those people's favor and many willing ride the force of these people's personality wave regardless of moral concerns. That is due to the fact that these individuals basically owe their increased material wealth and power to their lack of empathy which gives them an operational advantage.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully. Opinion and thoughts have been adapted, edited, corrected, redacted, combined, added to, re-edited and re-corrected as nearly all opinion and thought has been throughout time but has been done so in the spirit of the original writer with the intent of making his or her thoughts and opinions clearer and relevant to the reader in the present time.

Dedicated to the establishment of knowledge, truth, justice and a clear understanding of reality as the American way!
