The Will To Power

“That anything in existence, having somehow come about, is continually interpreted anew, requisitioned anew, transformed and redirected to a new purpose by a power superior to it; that everything that occurs in the organic world consists of overpowering, dominating, and in their turn, overpowering and dominating consist of re-interpretation, adjustment, in the process of which their former ‘meaning’ and ‘purpose’ must necessarily be obscured or completely obliterated.” -Friedrich Nietzsche in On the Genealogy of Morality.
Think about our current legal system. It is ever changing, ever evolving, ever advancing into the future. Everyday we come up with new laws to be passed or denied. However, have we not taken the time to think about this fact? The very fact that the laws that bound us to this world, are ever changing? What does this say?
It was once said that, “No man is above the law.” but it seems that the very opposite is the truth today. That man is always above the law in our system of justice. That justice is defined by the powers in which create them in the first place. That justice is corrupted with the contingent feelings of power. That justice is not justice, but simply power and control.
Law must be law in regards to the essence of law if it is to be ordained by truth. Law must inhibit justice as justice qua justice, as if though ordained by God himself. Justice must be defensible in regards to power, as if to say that with the ever changing power structures, the law remains the same.
This is not true justice, true justice is power being used to advance human progress, to benefit the human body and to progress the capabilities of the human mind. Not by means of compassion and helping another, but by that will which we all strive for, the will to power.
People are only nice, because we are not allowed to be mean.
