What Would Nietzsche Think of Current American Politics?

Given his strong critique of Judaeo-Christian-Slave-Morality, would Friedrich Nietzsche find the current political climate in Washington D.C. distasteful?

By: Ringo Bones

There's not just a hint of certainty that if Friedrich Nietzsche managed to observe first hand the current state of "partisan" politics in Washington D.C. that he will be appalled. The question is: how and what kind of "appalled" will he be? But is the antiquated view of Abrahamic Religious Doctrine the root of America's intransigent predicament?

Prof. Richard Dawkins once opined that he draws no distinction between religion in politics and - like me - Professor Dawkins seems also to harbor a thinking that both religion and politics - especially the present state of American Evangelical perception of politics - seems can't help manipulating the truth and the perception of truth to suit their own ends. So much for reaching a consensus on that one.
