Topic - Pascal Bruckner
According to Pascal Bruckner, we in the west suffer from neurotic guilt, a condition imposed upon us by the high priests of the left. This secular clerisy are heirs to the Christian tradition of original sin, which universalized guilt by claiming that humans are fallen and must redeem themselves. Nietzsche denounced Christian guilt as a psychic evil which forces man's will to power in on himself.
Our guilt, he writes, is actually a means for us to retain our superiority over the non-white world, our masochism a form of sadism.
