The Will to Power

Book One: History of European Nihilism
II: Nihilism

§ 58 If this is not an age of decay and declining vitality, it is at least one of headlong and arbitrary experimentation: — and it is probable that a superabundance of bungled experiments should create an overall impression as of decay — and perhaps even decay itself.

A quote for Labor Day

It is all over with us if the working classes ever discover that they now can easily surpass us by means of education and virtue. But if this does not happen then all the more is it all over with us.

Friedrich Nietzsche, Notebooks, early 1870s

A sad anniversary

It was 75-years ago today that, after manufacturing a casus belli, Germany invaded Poland.

The Gleiwitz incident was a false flag operation by Nazi forces posing as Poles on 31 August 1939, against the German radio station Sender Gleiwitz in Gleiwitz, Upper Silesia, Germany (since 1945: Gliwice, Poland) on the eve of World War II in Europe. The goal was to use the staged attack as a pretext for invading Poland.

This provocation was the best-known of several actions in Operation Himmler, a series of unconventional operations undertaken by the SS in order to serve specific propaganda goals of Nazi Germany at the outbreak of the war. It was intended to create the appearance of Polish aggression against Germany in order to justify the subsequent invasion of Poland.

Britain honored its treaty obligations to Poland, declaring war against Germany on September 3rd.

Theopolitico quote for the day

Given the defects in the Jesus story line, it is frightening that the Republican Party has allowed itself to be hijacked by those who continue to claim the Bible is inerrant and literally “the word of God.” The GOP might just as well allow itself to be ruled by nursery rhymes.

Michael Hamar

“… ruled by nursery rhymes.” I might plagiarize that and use it myself some day.
