Nietzsche writes:

"The production of a synthetic, summarising, justifying man for whose existence this transformation  of mankind into a machine is a precondition, as a base on which he can invent his higher form of being" (WP:866)

In the face of the above, how does one justify the claim that Nietzsche was not into bullying, domination etc.?  Surely transforming mankind into a machine treats mankind as an instrument of production - dominated and bullied into service? 

Cheers
Peter
