Look at any university: A book against Fascism and racism by an Ethiopian, for Ethiopians, for Africans and for the rest of the world is of utmost relevance. If, as you say, you are a true friend of philosophy, what then is preventing academia from welcoming you and your book? The same idea recurs on pages and In other words, the Gospel implicitly but compellingly defines the Antichrist not as a mortal being who claims to be against God but as the driving force behind the organized church, specifically as the embodiment of the “Second Person” of the so-called Trinity; dead and buried on Friday and allegedly resurrected on that infamous Sunday morning; as the christ of the organized church who masquerades as the true Christ; a spirit that comes not in its own name claiming to be the actual Antichrist but as a wooing, seemingly gentle and loving spirit that comes in the name and the stunningly close likeness of Jesus Christ himself See Mathew Nietzsche must have found it quite flattering to think of himself as the Antichrist but as most of us know or should know reality does not sustain fantasy.
Challenging the German “philosopher’s” theory of ‘will to power’, Gorfu states that, it is the very thing which Nietzsche calls weakness which has proved to be the strength, for example, of the Israelites.
We have no record of him ever having a secret lover or a mistress. And there may be many more to come. I am not surprised if Gorfu too, has misunderstood him. I want to bring philosophy back to life. The knowledge he had acquired over his lifetime should have been passed on to coming generations. Man has used that power to rape the world and his fellowman in the most hideous manner.

It takes much more than just Scriptural language and even murderous behavior in the strict clinical sense of the word to commit a spiritual crime. Furthermore, as all my previous writings and publications prove, this style of writing and ruthlessness is alien to me, too. I remember those were years filled with all kinds of personal contrq, and economic hardships, but I made time to read outside of my class curriculum.

I wanted to give my Guru a taste of his own medicine, and see how he fares. I have read several of Nietzsche’s books but have never seen this side of Nietzsche. I am originally from Bulgaria, and when I met G.
I especially liked his comments on the role of the aristocracy in human history. What are the defining features of slavery? Nietzsche’s rejection of science is stated two times on the same page with strikingly similar words and phrases. The book may be well written, but what is the purpose? And I doubt, it ever will. This, without a doubt, was of course, the foundation of my early development and love for literature, and later for my interest in philosophy.
Apart from this, Gorfu’s interpretation of the condition of the Hebrews in the desert is interesting and even original.
Tadias: Book Excerpt
Buddha, Socrates, Confucius, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, gorfi others took their thoughts and ideas to the streets and market places. Second, evil can only be defeated by spiritual means. Gorfu sees perfectly that striving for power is the symptom of feelings of inadequacy and that the truly strong person is fair and kind.

When I saw for the first time the big voluminous Amharic dictionary in his hands, and listened to him talk about his work, I quietly said to myself:
