Anudda “star philosopher”. Will a frog-eating hipster finally make the national breakthrough by “rediscovering” Nietzsche? The moderate right-wingers who call themselves “conservative” and “separate themselves from the extreme right-wing fringe” firmly believe so.
Young people on a quest. Anyone who wants to be hip today must at least operate with cartoonish pop art. And I thought this half-sucked candy had been swallowed since Jordan Peterson at the latest. Translation:
Star philosopher Julien Rochedy drags the feet of the mainstream
Everything is green. Everything is left. Everything is egalitarian. The discussions in today’s world are all conducted from a left-liberal foundation. The reevaluation of all values by the leftist forces is almost complete. This is because they have been able to push through all their ideas, from transgender ideology and hardcore feminism to multiculti, without exception. But not just politically, but intellectually, quite fundamentally.
Julien Rochedy, a star conservative philosopher from France, wants to tackle this problem. He doesn’t want to fight left-wing symptoms, but to get to the roots. His instrument for this: Nietzsche! His first work has now been published in German: “Nietzsche – The Contemporary”. The great occidental philosopher David Engels (“What to do?”) has contributed a foreword. https://de.zxc.wiki/wiki/David_Engels
Engels makes it clear: Rochedy’s reflections are a weapon for the non-left camp to find a way out against the ubiquitous 68er victory. A return to Nietzsche is seen as the key. For Europe, Engels makes clear, is on the brink of spiritual as well as physical self-destruction. The road to the abyss cannot be stopped by combating symptoms. One must get to the sources of the German and European descent!
And here Rochedy starts. His book is not a “scholarly” writing for the well-read and doctors. Rather, it is a combative, libertarian introduction to Nietzsche’s life’s work.
Rochedy writes brilliantly and elegantly – but also provocatively. By way of introduction, he asks:
“What if the majority of our values, which are instilled in us from earliest childhood and which are supposed to oblige us to revere tolerance, charity, kindness, openness to the world, democracy, humanity, the weak and oppressed, nonviolence, equality, and progress, and to always see truth and happiness in these values and appearances, are in reality nothing but evil spawns of decadence?”
And so Rochedy takes you on a journey through the world of ideas. One is not maltreated with the ideological sledgehammer, but wisely led through the subject matter. One actually comes to the conclusion that Nietzsche’s philosophy is of inescapable importance in the here and now. Without Nietzsche, we would hardly be able to understand what is currently happening in Western civilization before all our eyes.
Rochedy’s work is thus enlightenment work in the best sense. One learns, one understands, one is amazed – and one becomes more courageous than ever to no longer accept the decay of Europe. What is clear, however, is that left-wing liberalism is more powerful today than ever before. We are rushing from one “dystopian” negative climax to the next.
European civilization, or what is left of it, is experiencing its last years. Nietzsche could therefore be right with his predictions. But that is precisely why he is more indispensable today than ever before. Above all, we need to adopt Nietzsche’s clear, relentless gaze. We need Nietzsche to recognize the “last men.”
Lastly, Rochedy also makes us realize where the shortcomings lie in ourselves. He teaches us, with Nietzsche, that we must fight the decadence within ourselves in order to be the alternative to the leftist uniformity. Rochedy teaches us the courage not to give up, not to give in, indeed: to work on ourselves. Can an introduction to a work of Nietzsche do more than this book? Hardly. Therefore: recommended reading!
