      Qoute from the paper that I think sums up what we are struggling to get at "For Nietzsche the only proper, or certainly the primary, object of any society was the production of the largest possible number of superior men. With Walt Whitman he would have said, “Produce great persons: the rest follows.” Produce great men and put them at the helm, and their wisdom will make your society stable, enduring and happy; and their creative powers, as seers, philosophers, artists and the like, will make your society significant and its name glorious."
