Excerpt: "Between secular and Christian codes of conduct there has always been a distinction regarding the ideal behavior and attitude. This is especially true in regards to how we see ourselves in relation to others. Friedrich Nietzsche, in the last part of the nineteenth century, proclaimed a new philosophy of man which claimed that the strong were justified in the exploitation of the weak, that the weak were in fact to be used by the strong and to serve the strong. He differentiated between "slave-morality" and "master-morality", and idealized the latter, and judged the "slave-morality" to be inferior and for the weak. The noble soul is the one who honors himself and exerts his power over the "herd". The noble soul is the one who strives to be superior and succeeds."
