    and still think he's a racist and anti-semitic than you are not understanding him. He despised anti-semites and Wagner's hatred of Jews destroyed their relationship. He viewed racialists the same way--they do not fit in his proto-existential 'take responsibility for your life' philosophy. They act like victims and blame others for their shortcomings. They certainly do not say YES to life. Maybe he was a mysogynist, I've not come to that conclusion, but I read him as a product of his time and compared to today, Europe was very patriarchal.
