Nietzsche was ever misunderstood, but probably the closest to describing the 21st century experience for humanity.
I identify with his ideology because he stated, "Become what you are." And none of the boundary creating, philosophizing theorists or Freudian apostles ever came close to describing the ability for humankind to evolve intellectually--none, but Nietzsche.
His work was ridiculed because it was "bastardized" by his sister's compulsion with anti-Semitism and Hitler's rise...she actually gave his walking cane to Hitler as a gift...which Hitler loved along with the works of the mythological works of Wagner.
Wagner and Nietzsche were friends for a time until Wagner discovered Nietzsche's secret "crush" on Wagner's wife.
The reanalysis of Nietzsche's work led to great prize-winning works by Albert Camus, Jean-Paul Sartre, Leo Strauss and Michel Foucault along with interests by the intellect of the political worlds. Nixon, Mussolini, Charles de Gaulle and Theodore Roosevelt studied his works.
Nietzsche does it for me...it was enough to say, "God is dead," as a metaphor and be misunderstood--it is another thing to be valid even a hundred years after your own demise.
We have much to learn.
