Nietzsche On Self-Delusion And Personal Bubbles

Friedrich Nietzsche draws an interesting connection between self-delusion and our personal bubbles.

Recently, Friedrich Nietzsche has been unfairly maligned as anti-enlightenment since some on the far-right have been trying to add intellectual heft to their movements.

On the surface, Nietzsche seems very pro-individual, but a closer reading of his works seem to reveal an anti-egalitarian elitism. Nihilism, Nietzsche's philosophy, was an antecedent to 20th century philosophies like existentialism, absurdism and post-modernism.
