THUS SPAKE ZARATHUSTRA
Friedrich Nietzsche (1891) (translated by Thomas Common; see complete text)

11. The New Idol

Photo 2 (id: 028_2_001)

028_2_002.jpg

SOMEWHERE there are still peoples and herds, but not with us, my brethren: here there are states.

Photo 3 (id: 028_2_002)

028_2_003.jpg

A state? What is that? Well! open now your ears unto me, for now will I say unto you my word concerning the death of peoples.

Photo 4 (id: 028_2_003)

028_2_004.jpg

A state, is called the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly lieth it also; and this lie creepeth from its mouth: "I, the state, am the people."

Photo 5 (id: 028_2_004)

028_2_005.jpg

It is a lie! Creators were they who created peoples, and hung a faith and a love over them: thus they served life.

Photo 6 (id: 028_2_005)

028_3_002.jpg

Destroyers, are they who lay snares for many, and call it the state: they hang a sword and a hundred cravings over them.

Photo 7 (id: 028_3_002)

028_3_003.jpg

Where there is still a people, there the state is not understood, but hated as the evil eye, and as sin against laws and customs.

Photo 8 (id: 028_3_003)

028_4_001.jpg

This sign I give unto you: every people speaketh its language of good and evil: this its neighbour understandeth not. Its language hath it devised for itself in laws and customs.

Photo 9 (id: 028_4_001)

028_4_002.jpg

But the state lieth in all languages of good and evil; and whatever it saith it lieth; and whatever it hath it hath stolen.

Photo 10 (id: 028_4_002)

028_4_004.jpg

False is everything in it; with stolen teeth it biteth, the biting one. False are even its bowels.

Photo 11 (id: 028_4_004)

028_4_005.jpg

Confusion of language of good and evil; this sign I give unto you as the sign of the state. Verily, the will to death, indicateth this sign! Verily, it beckoneth unto the preachers of death!

Photo 12 (id: 028_4_005)

028_5_001.jpg

Many too many are born: for the superfluous ones was the state devised!

Photo 13 (id: 028_5_001)

028_5_003.jpg

See just how it enticeth them to it, the many-too-many! How it swalloweth and cheweth and recheweth them!

Photo 14 (id: 028_5_003)

028_5_004.jpg

"On earth there is nothing greater than I: it is I who am the regulating finger of God."- thus roareth the monster. And not only the long-eared and short-sighted fall upon their knees!

Photo 15 (id: 028_5_004)

028_5_005.jpg

Ah! even in your ears, ye great souls, it whispereth its gloomy lies! Ah! it findeth out the rich hearts which willingly lavish themselves!

Photo 16 (id: 028_5_005)

028_6_002.jpg

Yea, it findeth you out too, ye conquerors of the old God! Weary ye became of the conflict, and now your weariness serveth the new idol!

Photo 17 (id: 028_6_002)

028_6_003.jpg

Heroes and honourable ones, it would fain set up around it, the new idol! Gladly it basketh in the sunshine of good consciences,- the cold monster!

Photo 18 (id: 028_6_003)

028_6_004.jpg

Everything will it give you, if ye worship it, the new idol: thus it purchaseth the lustre of your virtue, and the glance of your proud eyes.

Photo 19 (id: 028_6_004)

028_7_004.jpg

It seeketh to allure by means of you, the many-too-many! Yea, a hellish artifice hath here been devised, a death-horse jingling with the trappings of divine honours!

Photo 20 (id: 028_7_004)

028_7_005.jpg

Yea, a dying for many hath here been devised, which glorifieth itself as life: verily, a hearty service unto all preachers of death!

Photo 21 (id: 028_7_005)

028_8_001.jpg

The state, I call it, where all are poison-drinkers, the good and the bad: the state, where all lose themselves, the good and the bad: the state, where the slow suicide of all- is called "life."
