What sort of values are Nietzsche's? They are not, according to some, moral ones, or at least Christian ones. Do they all share in any (other) quality?
To be more specific: how can we tell some value is life affirming, aside from living with those values? I mean, I can tell when I'm happy or sad, and often know why that is -- often just forgetfulness, wise or otherwise. But is that enough, values that promote happiness with ourselves? If so, that raises the question what sort of happiness, and whose.
Some examples might help.
Suppose I suffer some misfortune due to someone feigning friendship. I don't think Nietzsche would encourage anyone to think their deception -- even fakeness -- was wrong. And yet Nietzsche was a very critical person, and surely blaming oneself (I should have known, or I was weak to suffer this misfortune) is just as confused.
What about people, in general, that profit from other people's misfortune, be that just schadenfreude or something more ruthless even exploitative? On the one hand, it is redolent of the devout Christian, to curse ones luck. But there is something decadent or parasitical about it, that I still find unsettling...
