Subject: Re: Remember your whip


if it is if any interest, it is the old woman that speaks those lines 
to Zarathustra. it is not at all clear that it is a recommendation for 
zarathustra to use a whip. it is quite possible that the old woman is 
joking with Z, laughing at the brute masculinity that needs a whip to 
constrol women. when Z does crack his whip later in the text, it is 
again a feminine voice that says that noise kills thought- a bit like 
this lsist sometimes.
