Nietzsche vs. Left-wingers

This is only for lovers of esoterica, and I don’t think Hicks goes far enough or in detail enough while unpacking his thesis, but so far he’s one of the few modern academics who publicly hit on what I’ve always thought to be obviously true – that modern lefties conform almost too perfectly to Nietzsche’s characterization of slave morality and ressentiment. But these days Nietzsche is almost exclusively read by precisely the type of person he excoriated and warned against. Maybe we all need more Nietzsche in our lives.
