Power and Purity (2020)

English | February 11th, 2020 | ISBN: 1684510112 | 256 Pages | EPUB | 3.28 MB

Today’s social justice movement is rooted in a toxic combination of what Nietzsche called “the will to power” and Puritanism, which manifests itself in self-righteous moral absolutism.

For Nietzsche, life is nothing but the will to power: the attempt to assert oneself against others who are motivated by the same headlong drive. The Puritan is motivated by a quest for moral and political purity. It is impossible to adequately grasp the revolutionary impulses of the radical left today without taking into account the complex dynamics of this rather surprising union.

This compelling and thoroughly original analysis of the social justice movement will change the way history records the development and effects the movement.
