A SKEPITCAL LOOK  AT  FAMOUS OCCULTISTS    
   by The Notorious Doctor Zoom Zoom



FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE 1844-1900


    He was actually an atheist, not an occultist...but since so many occultists seem to read Nitzche (or pretend to), I’ll mention him.  Occultist Aleister Crowley seemed to be influenced by him, as were Anton LaVey and even Charles Manson.  Nietzsche did not believe in conventional morality, but thought man was “beyond good and evil”, and had to choose his own moral code. This is basically the way most occultists live their lives.

  A 19th century German philosopher perhaps best known for the saying “That which does not kill us makes us stronger”. Of course, people who survive massive coronaries or strokes are usually left weaker from the experience, thus proving that wrong. He also coined the phrase "God is dead"...impossible since God never existed in the first place.  Nietzsche believed a person should throw themselves completely into a cause without hope of personal gain or reward (according to most interpretations). Many historians think Nietzsche’s writings are why so many intellectuals joined the Nazi and Communist parties during the early 20th century. His writings of "Ubermench" (supermen) rising up from the masses certainly sound as though they could have been written by Joseph Goebels. Neitzche's writings are somewhat ambiguous, almost to the point of being mystical. This allows for a lot of wiggle room interpretation wise, and thus there are actually several school of thought on how to interpret what his philosophy is about. Writings about "The Will To Power" and the rise of "Supermen" are what made him Hitler's favorite sage, and the anti-Semetic and anti-Christian tone was no doubt an added bonus. He was also said to be a favorite of Joseph Stalin, too.

     Apologists for Nietzche claim he wasn't really anti-Semetic, and that the Nazis simply took selections of his writings they liked out of context, and ignored what they didn't like. The thing is, there doesn’t seem to be much that they wouldn’t have liked! His apologists will claim things such as Nietzche allegedly dropped a publisher because the publisher was anti-Semetic, as an example (other accounts say, it was simply a dispute over money). Nietzsche is favorite of college professors, and when the fact he had been a source of inspiration for the Nazis came out, it became necessary to claim Nietzsche was not anti-Semitic, and even opposed to anti-Semitism. This is because atheistic professors just love Nietzsche’s hatred of Christians and want to keep him the classrooms. It’s really just a convenient way to promote bigotry. Hating Christians isn’t as detestable as hating Jews, but it should be.

     If  Nietzsche wasn't an anti-Semite, he sure kept some peculiar company, especially for someone who supposedly opposed anti-Semitism! One of his best friends was composer Richard Wagner, a man who never tried to hide his hatred of Jews. If the Nazi regime had been a movie, Wagner provided the soundtrack for it 50 years in advance. It would have been hard to have been Wagner's friend without having his issues with Jews and Judaism come up, because anti-Semitism and German romanticism dominated his music and his life. His sister was an anti-Semite and even left Germany with her husband for Uruguay to start an "Aryan colony" ,which still exists today. In a foreshadow of things to come, the group even adopted a swastika flag as it's symbol! In other words, the group created a proto-Nazi Germany south of the border (well, south of our border, anyway).  His other sister was also an anti-Semite, whom apologists blame for editing and arranging his posthumous writings to appear anti-Semitic. It might be presumed his sisters learned anti-Semitism and German nationalism from their parents, which would have been the same parents Professor Friedrich had. How is it that this man was surrounded by so many haters of Jews, and yet somehow remained unaffected?

    The fact Nietzsche hated Christianity is unquestionable, so is it really so unreasonable to think he hated it's parent religion? His biggest source of inspiration, Schopenhauer, was also an anti-Semite who hated Christianity. Schopenhauer wrote extensively about the will, like Nietzsche, although he did not seem to practice much will power in real life. He usually gorged himself at dinner and drank wine until he fell asleep at the dinner table, food particles still clinging in his beard. These are the type of people that wake up in various puddles of their own fluids (and those of others!).

     If the old saying "Those who can do, those who can't teach" is true, Nietzsche is the proof.  In his lifetime he never really amounted to much. Nietzsche’s idea that he could make up his own morality allowed him to frequent brothels, which is how he contracted syphilis. Some think this may have been the cause of his madness, although many of his readers like to romanticize he went insane from learning too much of life’s mysteries.  He spent his final days in an insane asylum where he spent his time screaming “I am God! I am God!” Hitler was so convinced in Nietzsche's theory of the will that he actually thought he could cause the Russian winter to turn to spring. Well, it didn't, and the German army froze, and Hitler lost. Now that you know all that, you might want to skip reading him and Schopenhauer too..
