“Only where the state ends, there begins the human being who is not superfluous.”

“War is the father of all things,” Heraclitus once wrote, and in agreement with this Zarathustra thought that nothing worthwhile would ever come about without strife. “Live dangerously!” is the advice that he gives to his friends. Even in love relationships risks must be taken. Getting hurt in a love relationship is nothing to be afraid of or bitter about, but rather an opportunity to grow and to respond creatively. “War” is not only an acceptable means, but also an important end in itself: “You say it is the good cause that hallows even war? I say: It is the good war that hallows every cause.” To live a warrior’s life is a supreme way of being.
