Happy Birthday Friedrich Nietzsche!

You would have been 165 today.  It is a shame you didn’t make it past 55 and even a greater shame that your mind didn’t make it past 44.  There was still so much to be clarified, developed, and newly discovered.

    A shame indeed. The absence of his mind in later years has been seized upon by people to finish his work for him in so many self-serving ways. Too often to create men of straw in seething retaliation against the proclamation of God’s death.
