To myself I view Jesus's doctrine as proto-zen, its quite common, take some shrooms and its easy to see how ideals in behavioral response require delicate negotiation and emotional depth . When he says You have heard that it was said, "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." ³⁹But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also."
A drug crazed alienated person running at me with a machete and I have a pistol and shoot him in self-defence, or I hold up my arms in a surrendering posture and plead something like No brother I love you and will comfort you. Both outcomes are good for me, One for the crazy So its to do alot with context. The mob can behave in much the same way, but the likelyhood of collateral damage increases exponentially, less so now than in the slaughterous previous centuries. Evil in context, a pervert is gonna rape your granma, Do you ask yourself," Is this guy pervert or misunderstood alienated victim?" Umm No. You get baseball bat and break his legs so he can't prowl around granma's backyard right? He doesn't go to jail, you don't involve cops, he avoids you in his wheelchair. A fair piece of justice served out by an individualist. This is Nietzsche's virtuous man, not weak person calling cops to shoot rapist, or saying "Ohhh pleeease don't hurt my old granma, I'll give you some money to leave, or pleading nooo, rape me instead but not granma" No, no no, the best outcome is uberman takes baseball bat to pervert and teaches him some manners, but lets him live to possibly improve and become a compassionate person.
