Let’s hear it for the ubermensch | The First Post / Robert Matthews

"(…) Tragically, Nietzsche suffered a mental
collapse in 1889, and his works fell into the hands of his sister
Elisabeth. A German nationalist and anti-semite, she became a tireless
promoter of a corrupted version of her brother’s philosophy, which the
Nazis eagerly embraced. (…)"

writes Robert Matthews on The First Post.

(Interestingly, I couldn’t submit this on Digg.com… perhaps the word "ubermensch" in the headline scared off the Digg machinery?)
