"A great people always believes that in it alone lies the truth, if it doesn't believe it alone to be called to resuscitate and save the universe by its truth, it immediately ceases to be a great people to become an ethnographic material."

- Nietzsche, Nachlass, 1888 11 [347]

"Problem - how did the exhausted come to make the laws of values?"



[Spring 1888]



Perhaps because the exhausted always already had the institutions.  Bureaucracy - the human poison for which the only antidotes are philosophy and blood.
