Nietzsche in a nutshell. Source

Suddenly, poverty, humility, and forgiveness became “virtues”. People who didn’t have any money were now noble. People who didn’t have the power to take revenge were now seen as forgiving. People who didn’t have any real accomplishments to their name were now humble.

Normally, this wouldn’t be an issue. But now, people who didn’t work towards anything significant in life didn’t care. People began seeing life as meaningless because the most important thing was supposed to come after death — heaven.

But it’s people who start religions. So if someone came up with a religion that they said had all the answers, it’d be a bit hard to believe.

We also happen to be the only species who can get corrupted. At a certain point, people realized they could use religion and beliefs as excuses for horrible injustices.

"God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers?”

The idea of God made its way into every corner of the world and in every part of our values. Imagine what would happen if the very thing we’ve built society on just vanished?
