Friedrich Nietzsche on Democracy - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 377
Democracy/Nietzsche/Höffe: In the evaluation of the modern form of government, democracy, political esteem is combined with the elitist superiority of apolitics. According to Nietzsche, democracy may be boring, but it is useful for the many, because it makes their lives bearable. The free spirits, however, should be allowed "to conceive the happiness of the many, if one understands by that the peoples or classes of the population, as not so important" (§ 438)(1).
