By accident I opened my copy of E. Nietzsche’s Will to Power. By coincidence the first fragment I saw was this: “What is evil? Three things: chance, uncertainty, suddenness”. (My copy not being in English nor German I’m finding it hard to pinpoint this frase for reference).
Evil is three things: chance, uncertainty, suddenness. Both housewife, reading “her” weekly horoscope on the back of a gossip magazie and politician following the dictates of his economic haruspiscators are engaging in basicly the same activity: reduction of randomness via magic.
