So I’m pretty sure I never actually wrote a post with my notes on Nietzsche and now it’s been so long that I don’t remember any of them, it’s almost like I didn’t read that stuff. I might like that, I’m not sure… if I wait long enough it’s like I get piece of my brain back.

Anyhoo, here’s the gist. Whatever Nietzsche may or may not have meant, whatever could or could not be made of his work, here is something which should not be argued and which I’m pretty sure Nietzsche did not argue: “there is no truth.” An assertion like that is stupid, false, and a performative contradiction.

The better point is that whether or not something is true is not the only question that matters. That is itself true and point that matters, at least some of the time.
