The Insurance Salesman

I'm beginning to understand Nietzsche’s concept of resentment and revenge; the two go together to form ideas of “morality”. He saw it as symptoms of decay and decline – sickness and all forms of pity and optimism. Religion is based on it, government too. I can see it everywhere now. It’s the moral dumpster where the have’s-and-have-not’s fight over class warfare, the economy, religious bias, “freedom”, prejudice and preferences; secret surveillance systems and fears of terrorism; political parties and deception; crime and punishment, minimum wage protests, union activism, gun-rights advocates, all wars and now even health care, dividing the healthy from the sickly. You don’t think Obama resents it that he’s gone from being the President of the United States to become an insurance salesman?
