Nietzsche on the Jews
Friedrich Nietzsche praised the Jews in his earlier writings – but harshly criticized them later:
1. In the Jews all the repellent qualities of man are present to an exceptional degree.
2. The stock exchange Jew is the most repulsive specimen of the human race.
3. They are so sure of their intellectual suppleness and shrewdness that they never, in their worst straits, need to earn their bread by physical labour.
4. Their souls have never known chivalrous, noble sentiments.
5. The command “Love your enemies” had to be invented by the Jews – the best haters that have ever been.
6. The Jews performed the miracle of the inversion of values. In this the significance of the Jews is to be found. It is with them that the slave insurrection in morals commenced.
7. The Jews are the most evil of enemies, because they are the most powerless. Their hate grows amongst them into something huge and terrifying, to the most spiritual and most poisonous manifestations.
8. The Jews knew how to get final satisfaction from their enemies and conquerors through a radical transformation of their values – that is, through an act of the most spiritual revenge.
9. The Jews “redemption” of humanity goes forward. The progress of this poison through the entire body of mankind seems irresistible.
10. The Jews claim all the virtues for themselves without further ado – and count the rest of the world their opposites: a profound sign of a vulgar soul.
11. They are of the basest origin, outcastes from respectable society, raised away from even the smell of culture, without discipline, without knowledge, without the remotest suspicion that there is such a thing as conscience in spiritual matters.
12. With an instinctive ability to create an advantage, when Jews step forward as innocence itself, then the danger is great.
13. The Jew is the master of the European press.
14. Rome felt that the Jew was something contrary to nature itself, its monstrous polar opposite, as it were. In Rome the Jew was considered “guilty of hatred against the entire human race.” And that view was correct, to the extent that we are right to link the health and the future of the human race to the unconditional rule of aristocratic values, the Roman values.
15. When confronted with the question “to be or not to be” the Jews chose to be…at any price. This price involved the radical falsification of all nature, of all reality, of the whole inner and outer world. – they defied all conditions under which, hitherto a people had been able to live or had even been permitted to live; they evolved an idea which stood in direct opposition to natural conditions – one by one they distorted religion, civilization, morality, history and psychology until each became a contradiction of its natural significance.
16. Christianity is not a reaction to Jewish instincts: it is their inevitable product: it is simply one more step in the awe inspiring logic of the Jews.
17. The Jews have been able to put themselves at the head of all decadent movements.
18. They have a vital interest in mankind sick and in confusing the values of good and bad, true and false – in a manner that is not only dangerous to life, but also slanders it.
19. Because of Jews, morality is no longer a reflection of the conditions which make for the sound life and development of the people. It is no longer the primary life-instinct: instead it has become abstract and in opposition to life – a fundamental perversion.
20. Nothing was left of history after that counterfeiter in hatred had reduced it to his uses. Surely not reality, surely not historical truth! Once more the instinct of the Jew perpetrated the same old master crime against history – he simply concocted his own.
21. The positive genius for conjuring up a delusional “holiness” unmatched anywhere else, either in books or by men: this elevation of fraud in word and attitude to the level of an art – all this is not an accident due to the chance talents of an individual, or to any violation of nature. The thing responsible is race.
22. To give one’s own will the name of God – that is essentially Jewish.
