Poking the bloated corpse of religion with a pointy stick to hear it fart.

Meek! Meek!

Yup… stay weak and controllable, but see that as a positive… Ah, the self governing population that the church wanted…

The opposite of the aristocratic morality is what Nietzsche calls slave morality. Unable to be excellent, the mediocre reverse the values of life. Slaves turn the natural domination of the strong over the weak into wickedness; success becomes a form of sin, and creative achievement indicates prideful selfishness. The slaves are motivated to effect this transvaluation of values because it allows them to celebrate their fates as spiritual achievements. Craven submission to the stronger, greater man becomes humble obedience—or it even gets transformed into “love of one’s enemies.” Slave morality turns weakness into a virtue: “Blessed are the meek.”
