"The sheer greenness of New Zealand's North Island reached up through the clean ocean air to hug Janeway's heart with warmth. As temperate and mild a place as San Francisco was, it was still penciled on the coastline in shades of minty gray. Fog and rock and juniper, not mountains, trees and snow like the wild panorama galloping below her. It seemed a shame to waste such beauty on felons. No matter how hard she tried to tell herself that even criminals were humans, deserving of certain dignities and rights, she couldn't quite divest herself of the belief that incarceration for serious crimes should be unpleasant and dull. Why take up land that could be added to New Zealand's magnificent National Parks when Alcatraz still crouched in the midst of San Francisco Bay, useless to everybody but tourists and seagulls? After all, the felons sunning themselves on Auckland's beaches right now should be contemplating how badly they never wanted to end up in prison again, not... "

'The Superman shouldn't care what the ondergeskik thinks of him, you mean? 'I teach you the Superman.' ' He shook his head and fell silent for several moments.

'Maybe,' he said at last, 'in terms of education, physical training, wealth, eugenics, perhaps soon even genetics--maybe by some standards we Draka have become Nietzsche's superman. We certainly like to flatter ourselves into thinking we have.'

He shook his head. 'But one would think that a superman shouldn't have to fear. And we do. We fear everybody else on the planet.'

'With good reason,' the Archon said. 'Everybody else on the planet fears us. Hates us, too...' "

Long ago, let me surmise, you came to Earth. It was the pure days that Nietzsche writes of, in antiquity, when you were called gods. And then Judaism and Christianity infected the planet, glorifying the weak at the expense of the strong.' " [Philosophy of Nietzsche be espoused here by a Nazi.]
Nietzsche Guernsey 1944 Allred, Lee. "The Greatest Danger " in Drakas! (S. M. Sterling, ed.) New York: Baen (2000); pg. 183. "Late September 1944
St. Peter Port, Guernsey Island
Channel Islands

Admiral Hans Laban Verwoerd lay sprawled in the center of Cornet castle's ancient courtyard. A heavy boot ground itself into his spine, pinning him to the rough stone flagging.

Banners, printed with motivational slogans, hung limp in the dawn air. Verwoerd turned his head, scraping his cheek against the rough flagstones. I want gremlins around me, the nearest one read, for I am courageous. " [This quote is from Nietzsche. There are many quotes from and references to Nietzsche throughout story. It is the main religion/philosophy referred to in the story. Not all refs. in DB.]

Nietzsche Guernsey 1944 Allred, Lee. "The Greatest Danger " in Drakas! (S. M. Sterling, ed.) New York: Baen (2000); pg. 199. "Sally looked at him. You're an odd one. Out and about the city you act like a kindly old grandfather. yet back at the castle you hang those dreadful banners all over the courtyard.'

' 'What is the best remedy? Victory!' Or 'I want gremlins around me, for I am courageous'?'

'Yes. What ever does that one mean?'

'What do Nietzsche's syphilitic rambling ever mean? 'Courage creates gremlins for itself' is the rest of that particular quotation.' He washed out his brush and dabbed a new color. 'Just be glad I'm not hanging those banners all over town the way Security wants me to. They're supposed to remind my troops they're Draka supermen.' He made a face.

'Are they? They don't act like it.' "

Nietzsche Guernsey 1944 Allred, Lee. "The Greatest Danger " in Drakas! (S. M. Sterling, ed.) New York: Baen (2000); pg. 201. "'Is that why you don't like Nietzsche banners like all good little Draka are supposed to?'

He daubed his brush in a mixture of colors. 'There was a time in my life when I thought of little else but Nietzsche. I was a young man at the time; I'd spent my life in British boarding schools, thought of myself as British, but I was still Draka. I guess I was trying to discover who I was.'

Sally rolled her head around, stretching her neck muscles. She resumed her pose. 'He's almost your state religion, isn't he?'

Verwoerd snorted. 'The Draka worship nothing but themselves. 'Serfs look up because they wish to be exalted; the superman looks down because he already is exalted.' when you're the oppermans, it's rather had to admit some entity might be superior to yourself. That's why the attempt to revive the Norse mythology, Naldorssen and all that, failed so miserably. Probably also why religion has always fascinated me so.' "

Nietzsche Guernsey 1944 Allred, Lee. "The Greatest Danger " in Drakas! (S. M. Sterling, ed.) New York: Baen (2000); pg. 201. "Sally nodded. She had seen combat, too. ' 'Thou pure, thou luminous heaven! Thou abyss of light!--because they rob thee of my Yea and Amen,' ' she said. 'Only in your case, you were looking for your Yea and Amen.'

Verwoerd smiled weakly. 'Since when did you start reading Nietzsche?' he asked.

'Since you started hanging it up in the courtyards.' " [Other refs. not in DB include pg. 208-209, 218-221.]

Nietzsche Guernsey 1944 Allred, Lee. "The Greatest Danger " in Drakas! (S. M. Sterling, ed.) New York: Baen (2000); pg. 211. Pg. 211: "The dagger point pressed harder. 'G'wan--live dangerously, like yo' precious Neechee [Nietzsche] says.'

...Verwoerd's voice was barely audible. Courage did create its own gremlins: the courage to hope. ";

Pg. 214: "'Pity's the greatest danger, Hans. That's what Neechee says, an' it's true. Dangerous for them. Dangerous for us.' "

Nietzsche Guernsey 1944 Allred, Lee. "The Greatest Danger " in Drakas! (S. M. Sterling, ed.) New York: Baen (2000); pg. 219. "'Now you know what I learned [from the Mormons] spending those three days in Salt Lake City.' He slowly edged over the door and closed it, locking it shut.

'There's no way you can escape, Hans. The courtyard is swarming with commandos.'

'Nietzsche was right all along,' Verwoerd said as if he hadn't heard her. 'Right about so many things. 'Once I thought of little else but Nietzsche'--would that I had ever been able to stop!

'Those three days I stared into the abyss--'thou heaven above me, thou pure, thou luminous heaven! Thou abyss of light!--and it stared back at me.'

...' 'And what have I hated more than passing clouds, and whatever tainteth thee? And mine own hatred have I even hated, because it tainted thee!' ' " [More.]

Nietzsche Guernsey 1944 Allred, Lee. "The Greatest Danger " in Drakas! (S. M. Sterling, ed.) New York: Baen (2000); pg. 220. "'You must become what you are.' [quoting Nietzsche] The Will to become the Superman, to rise above 'slave morality'--that makes us the Superman. It was our Will that made us [Draka] better than the rest of the world.

'Then I visited that accursed city [Salt Lake City], saw that same Will channeled into their [Mormons] morality, their serf dreams. To 'never never never' fall under the yoke, to be gods looking down in pity on mere superman. To will the absurd fantasies of religion into reality--entire nations that don't have to conquer or murder or . . .'

He composed himself. 'I knew then my people [Draka] were too evil to let them continue to exist. I dedicated my life to destroying the Domination.' "

Nietzsche Illinois 2005 Maggin, Elliot S. Kingdom Come. New York: Time Warner (1998); pg. 8-9. "We had met at the exercise club in Wilmette... I told him I was a minister, and he told me, laughing, that he was a retired super hero... The rub was that this was the absolute truth. We'd gotten into a long conversation about Nietzsche and gnosticism... "
Nietzsche Kansas: Smallville 1978 Maggin, Elliot S. Superman: Last Son of Krypton. New York: Warner Books (1978); pg. 73. "By the time Clark Kent was old enough to start the first grade he had been exposed to the wisdom amassed over ten thousand years of human history on Earth. He was even able to extrapolate a bit on that wisdom. He could have discoursed with Decartes and Locke. In an apparent contradiction, he held Hobbes and Nietzsche and their ideas of the natural superiority of certain members of society, in contempt. Martha Kent appreciated the influence of her reading list, but she suggested that he substitute simple rejection for the contempt. "

"She would wake on these days and every moment of the day would be an exact repetition of some earlier identical day--this was how it felt--as if Nietzsche's notion of eternal recurrence, the endless repetition of all possible spacetime continuums, had become somehow transparent for her, a lived experience. "
Nietzsche USA 1969 Milan, Victor. "Transfigurations " in Wild Cards (George R. R. Martin, ed.) New York: Bantam (1986); pg. 262. "Tom Douglas most of all. His music brooded like an ancient ruin, dark, foreboding, hooded. Though his real affinity was to the gentler Mamas & Papas sound of an era already history, Mark was drawn to the Douglas touch--dark humor, darker twists--even as the Nietzschean fury implicit in the music repelled him.
