b.Christian’ morals to be the slave morality.c.The slaves = bad according to the original moral system d.But they tune in saying that their cruel masters were evil an so that they must be good.

Became understood as virtues rather than as sign of weakness. e.This moral system became dominant in the West through the rise of Christianity, so that even the ruling classes in Nietzsche’s time endorsed this form of slave morality.
f.It dominated in Europe in Nietzsche’s day and he thinks that this has produced a “slavish” sort of person who now NEEDS this morality to justify and dress up character traits that would otherwise just seem like weakness. g.Its natural to have positive ambitions – defined positive virtues by masters.
