According to Reiland, Nietzsche simply told us “the world isn’t run by moral rules.” I think we could take issue with that. He was somewhat enthusiastic about “the blonde beast” enforcing his will to power on the world and provided important grist for the later National Socialist project in Germany.
Reiland acts similarly puzzled about Comte, who “said man could figure things out better through science than theology.” That’s not exactly all Comte had to say. He was so enthusiastic about science he envisioned a religion based on science with temples, priests, etc. He also was a leading proponent of the secularization thesis which saw traditional religion crumbling before increasing enlightenment, which was pretty much a shibboleth of those scary superstates we mentioned before.p>If Human Events was too harsh in its assessment of some of these books, Ralph Reiland is a bit too charitable. br> — Hunter Baker /p> p> DEAN BEFORE AND AFTER br> Re: R.
