The will to a system

The will to a system is a lack of integrity.
-Nietzsche

I used to put that in my Yahoo profiles. Iíve thought about putting it on a t-shirt. For thirty years Iíve thought it terribly funny.

Hereís my reading of Nietzscheís words. A system requires integrity in the sense of internal consistency. Adjusting and manipulating facts, perceptions, intuitions into a whole falsify the original materials. That is you have to lie which in itself is a failure of integrity.

Some jokes just canít be shared.

Correct reading of this quote, in my opinion, but I have never found it to be funny, just accurate. Hope this helps.

Humor is idiosyncratic: what may send me into a fit of laugter might put most people to sleep.

Your feelings?

Please share your feelings about The will to a system.
Thanks,
Richard
