Nietzsche on Equality
Twilight of the Idols - Expeditions of an Untimely Man 37
Our 'advance' in morals has been the decay of our hostile and mistrust-arousing instincts. We are all nurses and invalids- everyone helps everyone- this is called 'virtue'. Strong ages, noble cultures, see in pity, in 'love of ones neighbour', in a lack of self and self-reliance, something contemptible. 'Equality', 'equal rights', belong essentially to decline. The chasm between man and man, classes and types are characteristics of every strong age. 'Equality for equals, inequalities for unequals'. 'Never make equal what is unequal'.
