So basically Nietzsche can write well. That's the positive. Now for the more critical, he always strikes me as a person who probably got picked on and wished they were something more or could be superior i.e. the "superhuman". I totally understand this, who doesn't daydream things like that. Perfectly natural. The problem comes when you try to base a lifestyle or philosophy on this. It takes the rest of humanity out of the decisions one makes and allows for actions that harm others to a great degree. The danger of these thoughts can be seen when taken in to the policy realm with libertarianism.

Libertarianism is the natural progression of Nietzsche's philosophy and its application in life can be very detrimental to the majority of the world and humanities' continued existence.
