OK. Perhaps, Nietzsche’s self-promotion was a little over the top.
How about the fall back position, where I know that I should sacrifice for some object, but step back, and weigh the consequences?
Meet Jacques Rousseau.
Who wants to sacrifice when one does not get the rewards or the credit for the sacrifice?
Well, at least my innate “knowing that I should sacrifice” means that I must be naturally good. But heavens, one should not over-do it, like that nut-job fellow who got himself crucified (page 43). Someone else – someone reasonable – should be in charge of the “object that brings everyone into relation”.
