Nietzsche’s Hammer Blog

Nietzsche’s Hammer Blog (NHB) exposes those who have trampled individual freedom.  In the tradition of Nietzsche, Nietzsche’s Hammer Blog pursues a “no holds barred” (NHB) approach to analysis and criticism.  Nietzsche was bold and often sought to offend those who held blindly to the status quo.  NHB carries on that tradition.

First Principles

  1. Property: The very foundation of freedom is belief in the right of every individual to property whether it be the money they earn or their body.  Individuals are entitled to do as they wish with their property free from coercion.
  2. Non-Aggression: It is right for one to employ force as necessary in defending one’s property from the aggressions of another.  Non-aggression is not non-violence.
  3. Fraud: Fraud is an effort to usurp another’s property and is illegitimate.

The greatest freedom for each individual is created in a society based upon these principle.  Free markets offer the single best opportunity to realize this.

All government which exists in the absence of free participation of a governed individual is coercive by definition and therefore illegitimate.  All forms of government always result in oppression through fraud and coercion.

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Nietzsche (October 15, 1844 – August 25, 1900) was a 19th century German philosopher.  Nietzsche became known for “God is dead”; a phrase which had found its way into popular culture (e.g., the movie Ghostbusters and the song History Will Teach Us Nothing by Sting).  His most popular work was Twilight of the Idols, or, How to Philosophize with a Hammer.  In philosophizing with a hammer, Nietzsche was unaffraid to challenge long-standing “idols” of morality.  Nietzsche was provocative and controversial.  Nietzsche believed one must embrace life, struggle to overcome obstacles by making personal choices and being responsible for them; that was Nietzsche’s freedom.
