Thanks for the words of wisdom. It isn't really about ressentiment, however,
it is about the dualisms the SEEM to remain present in N's later thought. In
Z, he seems to try to overcome dualisms with the WP, but there is  a way in
which N reinforces dualism in BGE.

I say SEEM because maybe we are misreading him with ressentiful eyes.  There
are some problems in N. Even if these dualism are within each, posited more
as a continuum than as 'opposites,' the order of rank smells funny.  And it
ain't because it goes against 'equality.'

there is no confusion here. N DOES posit in places the need to 'destroy'
base types, while acknowleding a need for a slavery class, he knows that
base natures will eat away at the 'peoples,' i.e. the goal of the overman.
The pathos of distance comes in here, but there still seems to be a way in
which N is unable to affirm the smallest man. And while a rejection of
values isn't the same as disgust with man, N does seem to exhibit a disgust
with man.

i'm so glad that we have a 'higher man' in our presence.

Thank you.
