Example text

Rather than identify his aims and aspirations with those of any existing community, he saves himself for a transhistorical community that is worthy of the allegiance of his beautiful soul. While this strategy of endless deferral surely involves a romantic flight from the present and the concrete, it also illuminates some of the perils of community, which Nietzsche’s critics occasionally neglect to reckon accurately. His prolonged solitude clearly exacts a heavy toll, but it also enables him to resist the (decadent) impulse to seek recognition from those “beneath” himself.

The conscience, a fiercely vigilant homunculus responsible for reckoning one’s debts and obligations, represents the final-and most forbidding-barrier to genuine sovereignty. Nietzsche snickers at the idea that the right to make promises stands as sufficient evidence of one’s sovereignty, for he views the conscience as the internalized, mnemonic distillation of socially enforced punitive and carceral practices.
