Thus Spoke Mega Man

Michael Garcia - April 14, 2016

When I was a pissed off angsty teenager in the early to mid-90's I read a lot of the writings of Frederich Nietzsche. That's how big of a dork I was. My way of being rebellious was to read 19th century German Nihilist philosophy. Or is Nietzsche really a Nihilist? Some people say no others say yes. The truth is that Nietzsche is a little hard to understand...OK, it's really hard to understand. You have to have a knowledge of Hegel, Christianity, Kierkegaard, Wagner, Plato, and philology. Luckily, as president of my high school philosophy society, I did. Like I said, I was a huge friggin' dork. I was also an avid video game player and I ascribed all kinds of philosophical ideas to Final Fantasy or Legend of Zelda. But I only vaguely understood what the hell I was talking about. What does a punk 17 year old upper middle class Latino kid in suburban Texas know about anything? Nothing. Hey, like Nietzsche thought eternity was like!

I wish I had had Mega Man to explain it to me like in this video. Here comes the ├╝bermench!
