Uh, me too. I read Thus Spake Zarathustra last year, didn't understand much and I read it again this year. I think that if I read it again when I'm a little older I'll fully understand the damn thing.
Considering the circumstances and his later destiny I'd say it's doubtful that even Nietzsche himself fully understood it.
Also, I really like some of his thoughts but he seems fairly psychopathic sometimes. "Pity is a weakening emotion" "there's no good and evil, ojly good and bad and good is what gives an individual power and bad is what takes it away" etc. "Justice is the tool by which the weak enslaves the strong"
Sometimes he's sensible and talks about the value of an individual and then he may say things like those. First he says everyone's prejudiced and often unfairly so and that no judgement can be given and starts a sexist rant
. I'm merely confused. He's so inconsistent.
I like the God is dead-idea though.
