Nietzche Conquered The World

Everybody in this world is a fourth rate existentialist

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
You have a character that's a woobie, pseudo-emo boy, who's entire life is a crap. But, guess what, everybody seems being like him or Genre Sawy enough to understand him. So they would take any opportunity to make a long speech about things like the self, the world, the reality or any random existentialist phrase they happen to come.

    What does "fourth hand existentialist" mean? Did you mean "fourth rate"?

    Isn't this already in Nietzsche Wannabe ?

    More important: Can you categorize Nietzsche as existentialist?!

    Is this supposed to be when Nietzsche's work is well known enough and easily interpreted enough that most people can understand a Nietzsche Wannabe's position and tell him exactly why he is wrong?

    Hmm isn't it paradoxical to have a man who promoted "individual thought" to conquer the world? Even metaphorically?

    Can't think of any examples at the moment.

    ^ Nah, he believed pretty strongly in "the Will to Power".

    Still, I cannot think of a single example.

    This seems to be a concept with no examples. Also, the description is in bad need of Wiki Magic. Does this trope exist?

    Is this basically World Of Nietzsche Wannabes?

    I'm going to say this isn't Tropeworthy.

    Anyone else?

    After six days on YKTTW we have zero examples. Not even the OP can think of one.

Three days must pass before this YKTTW is Launchworthy or Discardable
