What Nietzsche always failed to tell anyone, was that being the ubermensch is actually super hard work. It’s actually much easier to have simple concepts like good and evil, to have back in your head to tell you what is “right” and what is “wrong”. It’s not better, but it is way easier than coming up with your own standard of morals to live by.
Much easier to let someone else decide and then live by what they said. Particularly if you intend to live as a person who is good and decent to others and not just a selfish jerk. When you are making up your own system if values, the only person you have to justify yourself to is your future self, but knowing how I am with my former self, he’s likely to be a strict bastard.
