The Hammer Over Europe

The Elder Nietzsche writes:

But how now, who is at work here, Kaiser Wilhelm 2?

Which name do you carry, o uncanniest of guests.


Oh where have I heard that before.

An eye for an eye my friend.

Hence, my confusion! Either or, or does the latter follow from the former?

What, a triumph - oh no -
it turns out that mediocrity is unendurable for the Earth - she commits suicide under it. No Eternal Last Man after all-
simply destruction by mediocrity.

Suicide by meh.
