Neitzche: Good=Power

Neitzche: Good=Power
Before I start, I will define power: ability to do or act; capability of doing or accomplishing something.

From the Antichrist. Section 2.

What is Good? All that enhances Power. What is Bad? All that proceeds from weakness. What is happiness? The feeling that Power is increasing, that resistance has been overcome.

Is Neitzches theory correct?

Looking at it secularly (as I need all others involved to do), he seems to be correct. Life is centered around power, ability, and accomplishment. The fittest are always the most powerful. Those whith the most power reproduce, that is natural selection.

Power is the cornerstone of life (Neitzche theorizes so). All that enhances your power, which in turn continues your existance and importance, is good. (Is he right?)

All that is bad is something that demerits, demeans, and decreases your power, and thus your importance and degrades your existence, is bad. (Is he right?)

All that is happiness derives from the increasing of power, and the decrease of opposition. (Is he right?)

I think hes right......even though he was a tad bit insane at the time of his writings.....

He is both right and wrong. Right in every word he spoke and yet wrong to the fact that the weakness inherent in the world is overpowering, to the point of any of it being able to be true.

Well, if your power leads you into showing itself to other people, than in truth weakness, or more important wrongful accusal, blasphemy, cruel criticism, and killing, all could bump heads with you as opposed to you being able to show true power in any sense of a good nature. In other words showing good power leads weak people to abuse their own.

Well, I dont think we should dismiss all of his work because of spots of insanity......not ALL of it......the majority of Zarathustra......yes. But not all.

RE: Neitzche: Good=Power
I agree with you.I think you have to know it from experience to understand. It's quite inexpressible.I am trying to tie Nietzsche concept of will and power to Pieter's Homecoming. Any help?

How about the pursuit of power is the root of all evil.
